Greensville County senior Rikaire Tucker, No. 73, will participate in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl Week Dec. 26-31 in Daytona Beach, Fla. Tucker played running back and linebacker for the Eagles.

While attending an Offense-Defense Football Camp this summer, Rikaire Tucker, 18, of Emporia, was named an Offense-Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 13th annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities in Dec. 26-31 in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Tucker, a running back and linebacker for Greensville County Eagles, was selected for this honor from an outstanding group of thousands of athletes across the county and played well representing Emporia, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee’s choice in tabbing him for the All-American tilt.

Tucker and his family thanks everyone for the donations to help send him to his last All-American Bowl.

The Offense-Defense All-American Bowl is the culmination of a week-long worth of events. The 13th 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 Lamar Jackson, Saquon Barkley, Cam Newton, Joe Haden, and Myles Jack, among others, before they were collegiate and later professional stars.

Offense-Defense Sports has been running full-contact football instructional camps for the past 50 years and currently operates in approximately 80 camp locations nationwide all year long.
