SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The All-American Bowl was Saturday Alamodome. More than 100 of the nation’s top recruits are in attendance were divided up into two teams – the East and West.

Coleman had a long list of schools but narrowed his focus to Florida StateOregonMiami and USC. And with coaching changes in Eugene, Coral Gables and Los Angeles, it impacted his decision-making process greatly. But in the end Kevin Coleman shocked the world by picking Jackson State.

4:12 4th quarter – Texas A&M kicking signee Ethan Moczulski nails a 42-yard field goal to give West a 34-14 lead.
