AVHS player headed for All-Star Bowl in Orlando
Mason Bartolo, 14, of Pleasanton was named an Offense-Defense All-American at a Football Camp in Myrtle Beach, S.C., this summer and invited to participate in the Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Bartolo, a running back/defensive lineman for Amador Valley, was selected by the Bowl Selection Committee for this honor from among thousands of young athletes across the country.
The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a weeklong series of events including the televised eighth annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country. Current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap and Dez Bryant are among others who played in the bowl before they were collegiate and, later, professional stars.
