Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic defensive end Brennan Scarlett became the second Oregon native, and fifth in the past two years, to be selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Scarlett was selected to the West squad at a ceremony at his school on Friday.
"Brennan is a talented athlete whose exemplary leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Central Catholic High School," said Col. Derik Crotts, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command, in a statement. "The strength, dedication, leadership and teamwork skills necessary to succeed on the football field are the same qualities mirrored in Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of our U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate them on their selection."
Scarlett is a four-star prospect and the #3-ranked prospect in the state of Oregon in the 2011 class. He is ranked 24th nationally at defensive end.
Earlier this season, he suffered a broken collarbone, but is expected back prior to the postseason and said he would be able to play in the U.S. Army Bowl.
Scarlett's top schools include Oregon and Oregon State and out-of-state programs Cal, Stanford, USC, UCLA, Oklahoma, LSU and Notre Dame.
