Two highly-recruited four-star athletes in Jones County will suit up in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl set for Saturday, January 5, 2019. 

West Jones defensive end and Alabama four-star commit Byron Young, as well as Laurel offensive lineman and FSU four-star commit Charles Cross have been invited to play in the high school football showcase in San Antonio, Texas. 

Cross announced his invitation and commitment via Twitter on Tuesday night. Recently upgraded to a four-star by 247Sports, Cross is considered the 13th best player at his position in the nation. 

Young is currently listed on the roster online and was invited – then committed – back on July 26. He’s the nation’s No. 119 player overall and ninth at his position. 

The game will be televised at noon on NBC.
