Right Guard Reaching Teens With Under Armour Football Tour

October 15, 2009: Right Guard has signed a deal to be the presenting sponsor for the inaugural Under Armour All-America Selection Tour, which will visit ten high schools over the next two months to honor the prep football players  selected to participate in the 2010 Under Armour All-America Game. Financial details were not disclosed.

The third annual Under Armour All-America Game, which features 85 of the nation’s top high school football players as selected by ESPN and its Scouts Inc. division, will be played on Jan 2, 2010 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg , Fla., airing live on ESPN. Among the ten players being honored on the tour is Nick Montana, the son of Pro Football Hall of Fame and former NFL quarterback Joe Montana.
