KNIGHTDALE — While attending an Offense-Defense football camp this summer, 14-year-old Corey Wiggins was named an All-American and invited to participate in the eighth annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities.
The bowl week is scheduled for Dec. 30-Jan. 5 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
Wiggins, a Knightdale High School rising sophomore and defensive lineman, was selected for the honor from a group of thousands of young athletes across the country. He played well representing Knightdale, validating the Bowl Selection Committee’s choice in tabbing him for the showcase event.
The Offense-Defense All-American showcase is part of a week-long series of events, including the televised Offense-Defense All-American Bowl.
The All-Star football game showcases 88 of the top high school players in the country and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap and Dez Bryant among others before they were college and later professional stars.
