East Nashville (Tenn.) senior Jacob Phillips became the football program’s first All-American on Wednesday when the inside linebacker received an honorary jersey for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Phillips, an Oklahoma commitment, has 104 tackles with seven for loss this season. The 6-foot-4, 228-pound linebacker has three interceptions, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble.

He received his jersey when the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to his school.

“This is like the most prestigious one,” Phillips said of the game, which will be held Jan. 7 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. “It’s something when I have kids, this game will probably still be around and still have a lot of hype around it.

“This is just a great memory.”
