Burrus Selected to Participate in National All-Star Bowl in Orlando



Branton Burrus was named an Offense-Defense All American after attending the football instructional camp this summer.

Myrtle Beach, SC - While attending an Offense-Defense Football Camp this Summer, Branton Burrus, 12, of Memphis, Missouri, was named an Offense-Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 8th-annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, FL.

Branton, a running back for Scotland County, was selected for this honor from a group of young athletes numbering in the thousands across the country and played well representing Memphis, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee's choice in tabbing Branton for the All-Star tilt.

The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a week-long series of events including the televised, 8th Annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap, and Dez Bryant among others before they were collegiate and later professional stars.

Offense-Defense Sports has been running full-contact football instructional camps for the past 45 years and currently operates in approximately 40 camp locations nationwide every spring and summer. For more information visit http://www.o-d.com.
