Bothell’s Sirmon to be honored for Under Armour All-America selection

Bothell High School senior and quarterback Jacob Sirmon will be honored on Thursday for his selection to play in the 2018 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game.

Representatives from American Family Insurance and the 2018 Under Armour All-America Game Selection Tour will present Sirmon, who will play for the University of Washington Huskies next year, with his official game jersey at a special assembly at the Northshore Performing Arts Center on the BHS campus, 9130 N.E. 180th St.

The football game Sirmon will play in, the Citrus Bowl, is set for Jan. 4, 2018 and will take place in Orlando, Florida. He said he can’t wait to play.

Sirmon was selected to play after participating in Under Armour’s Future 50 Underclassman Camp last year.

“It was awesome,” he said about being selected, calling it a “great honor.”

The 18-year-old, who has been playing football since he was 7, said it has been his dream to play in an all-American game.
