While attending an offense-defense football camp this summer, Christian Whitley, a 12-yearold 7th grader, was named an Offense-Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 12th annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place this month in New Orleans, La.
Whitley, a fullback, strong safety and special teams for Humble ISD’s Woodcreek Middle School and a wide receiver, cornerback, tight end and special teams for the Atascocita Ravens, was selected for this honor from an outstanding group of thousands of athletes across the country and played well representing Houston, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee’s choice in tabbing Whitley for the All-American tilt.
The Offense-Defense All-American Bowl is the culmination of a week-long worth of events. The 12th Annual All-American game is just one of many things that this week encompasses. Also included is an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country, and has featured current NFL pros such as Heisman Trophy winners Lamar Jackson and Cam Newton, as well as Joe Haden, Dez Bryant and many others before they were collegiate and later professional stars. Offense-Defense Sports has been running fullcontact football instructional camps for the past 48 years and currently operates in approximately 80 camp locations nationwide all year long.
