Lobos' Andrews showcasing talents on national stage
Jan. 9, 2014 at 4:19 p.m.
As two-year starter on the Lobos' offensive front, Kenny Andrews has made his presence known throughout the area.
Now Andrews is getting to showcase his talent on the national stage.
Andrews will travel to Tampa, Fla. to compete among the best in the nation at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Saturday at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"It's a great opportunity for Kenny to get some national exposure and increase his recruiting stock," Longview head coach John King said. "This is a chance for him to show what he can do on the national stage."
Andrews impressed in the Blue-Grey National Super Combine over the summer, landing him a spot in Saturday's showcase that features 90 players from across the nation out of more than 6,750 players that competed in regional combines in 2013, according to Blue-Grey Events.
King said that Andrews' athletic prowess made him a standout not only at the camps but for the Lobos as well.
"Kenny is extremely quick and very strong," King said. "He's a kid that's got a motor and can be both physical and use finesse in pass blocking.
"This is a chance to show that he can fit any type of scheme whether it's a power running attack or a drop-back spread attack - he can do all of those things - he's just a very athletic offensive lineman."
The Blue-Grey All-American Bowl will be streamed live on Fox Sports Florida's 'Prep Zone' beginning at 8 p.m. Saturday and will be tape-delayed on Fox Sports South at a later time.
