Senior football player Casey Tucker received his honorary game jersey during the American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the 2014 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game at Hamilton High School in Chandler. 

The event was part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game.

Tucker is one of 90 players selected to compete in the seventh-annual Under Armour All-America Game presented by American Family Insurance, a nationally televised competition spotlighting the country's top high school seniors.  The 2014 Under Armour All-America Game is set for 4 p.m. ET Jan. 2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, FL., and will be televised on ESPN.  

"I decided to accept the invitation to the Under Armour All-America Game because I just wanted to get the opportunity to go to Florida and compete against the best of the best," Tucker said.  "It's definitely a humbling experience considering I haven't gone to college and everything.  It's a great blessing that I've received, and everything is so great about it.  I'm very thankful for the opportunity."

The national Selection Tour sponsored by American Family Insurance is aimed at raising awareness around teen driving safety and recognizing the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities who have helped make these players' dreams a reality. 

"High school football is a focal point for many communities, an opportunity to cheer with a single voice for the team," said Deborah Peterson, American Family Insurance's director of customer relationship marketing. "Sponsoring the All-American Game not only is American Family Insurance's way of honoring the top players across the land, it's also our salute to the communities that inspired these dreams by continuing the rich tradition of high school football."
