JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – Campbell Cougar Storm Webb, who has started on the line for the Orange-n-Blue since his freshman season, has been tabbed to play in one of the nation’s premier all-star football games. In January, Webb will suit up for the annual Blue-Grey All-American Bowl at Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium.
This prestigious bowl has featured such stars as Patrick Mahomes and Brian Dawkins over the years. It’s believed that Webb is the only Cougar ever to have been chosen for the bowl.
Nearly 7,000 players in the east were invited to try out, not all did. Webb recently tried out at Nashville’s Lipscomb Academy, and out of all the players at that camp, Webb was the only one who made the cut.
NFL veterans will serve as coaches for the January 8 game that will be televised around the world on The Impact Football Network. Webb will celebrate his 18th birthday on January 5, report for camp on the Jan. 6 and then play on Jan. 8.
The 6’1 327 pound Cougar has drawn the attention of several colleges including Alabama. He’s in the process of scheduling his visit to Tuscaloosa in July.
Campbell Coach Justin Price calls Webb one of the most versatile linemen to ever play on The Hill. “He can play any position on the offensive and defensive lines,” said Price.
Webb is a legacy Cougar. His father starred in the 1990s. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 06/28/2023-6AM)
