In the 2013 NFL Draft, there were a total of 8 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Alumni drafted in the first round. The 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of 40,133 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.

Johnnie Dixon of William T. Dwyer High School in West Palm Beach, FL, has been selected to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 4, 2014, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.

“Dixon is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at William T. Dwyer High School,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”

Dixon, a 5-foot-11, 190-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star, the No. 39 wide receiver prospect nationally.

"Dixon has some unique physical attributes, he has plus speed (4.4) and a very strong, durable frame," Scout.com reports. He has continued to add mass while not sacrificing speed."

"This is a potential big play weapon at the next level and Dixon will be able to stretch the field. He has a lot of potential over the middle of the field. We would like to see him play bigger in all facets of the game. Could also be DB down the road."

For more than 13 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the nation’s premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America’s future college and NFL stars. Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.

One of the state's premier prospects, regardless of position, Dixon finished his junior season with 33 catches for 610 yards and six scores.
