Highland defensive tackle Bryan Mone will be heading to Florida in the dead of winter.

Mone, a star University of Michigan commit, has been invited to the 2013-14 Under Armour All-America Game on Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014, in St. Petersburg, Fla.

The American Family Insurance Selection Tour, sponsors for the 2014 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game, will visit Highland High School in Salt Lake City on Friday, Oct. 4, to formally present the Ram senior Mone with an honorary game jersey commemorating his selection to the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game. The presentation is scheduled to take place at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

American Family Insurance spearheads a three-month selection tour will visit the 90 various Under Armour All-Americans to present official jerseys in front of their family and friends. As part of American Family Insurance's involvement with the 2014 Under Armour All-America Game, the events will raise awareness around teen driving safety and recognize the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities who have helped make these players' dreams a reality.

Mone follows in the footsteps of fellow Utah prep football stars such as Bronson Kaufusi (Timpview, 2010) and Cooper Bateman (Cottonwood, 2012) who have gone to star at the Under Armour All-America Game.

The Rams are 4-2 through their first six games of the season and Mone stars on a talented front line including University of Utah commit Pita Tonga and Cody Hilborn. Through those first six games, Mone has registered 26 tackles and two sacks. During his junior season at Highland, he had 71 tackles and three sacks.
