This has been known for a long time, but the U.S. Army All-American Game officially announced last week that Dwyer seniors Matt Elam and Gerald Christian were selected.

Here are the photos from their press conference at Dwyer last Wednesday:

Both players were selected early in the process, but the U.S. Army did not announce the honors until last week. Elam was chosen in February and Christian was added a month later. Both players are committed to Florida and are ranked first and fourth, respectively, on The Big Board.
