    As one of the nation's elite high school football players, Dominion High School senior Chad Smith has earned selection to play in the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

    Smith, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound Clemson University recruit, becomes the fourth player from Loudoun chosen to play in the game. He joins Stone Bridge alums Jonathan Allen (now playing for Alabama) and Ryan Burns (Stanford), along with Briar Woods alum Alex Carter (Stanford).

    The U.S. Army All-American Bowl will feature 90 high school football players in an East vs. West match-up. The game will be played Jan. 3 at the Alamodome in San Antonio and will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m.

    “Chad and all of the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl players were selected not only for their ability on the football field, but also because they demonstrate mental, emotional and physical toughness – similar strengths to those of our Army Soldiers,” Mark S. Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing, said in a release.

    “We are pleased to welcome these talented athletes to this year’s showcase of athleticism, teamwork and excellence," Davis continued. "We congratulate each of them on their selection.”

    Smith was a four-year varsity starter at Dominion, playing for coach Karl Buckwalter. A stand out at both running back and linebacker, Smith helped the Titans record their first-ever playoff victory in 2013 and advance to the postseason once again in 2014.

    He garnered scholarship offers from a dozen NCAA Division I schools - including Wisconsin - before deciding Clemson was his best fit. Smith was recruited by colleges to play outside linebacker, where he ranks among the top 20 players nationally by several recruiting websites.

    Smith will graduate from Dominion in January and will enroll at Clemson for the spring semester. Enrolling early provides Smith a head start in preparing for his initial collegiate season.
