SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Dorial Green-Beckham showed the country why he is considered the top high school football player in the Class of 2012.
The Springfield Hillcrest High School senior caught two passes, including a record-breaking 79-yard touchdown pass to lead his West squad to a 24-12 victory in the U.S. Army High School All-American Bowl Saturday in San Antonio. Most recruiting analysts rate Green-Beckham as the country's top senior prospect.
"Just coming out here and competing against the best has been real fun." said Green-Beckham. "The whole week has been oustanding,. both sides of the ball, both teams came out for the win."
Green-Beckham hooked up with fellow co-mvp, quarterback Cyler Miles for the first-half score. The 79-yard touchdown broke the record for longest touchdown pass by a yard, set by former Florida Gators teammates Chris Leak and Andre Caldwell in the 2003 game. Beckham also caught a 9-yard pass.
