POMEROY, Ohio — A final high school football game on the big stage.
That was the case for Meigs High School senior Morgan Tucker, who on Dec. 22 played in the Blue-Grey All American Bowl.
Tucker was one of 90 senior football players from across the country given the chance to participate in the event held at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.
Tucker, a defensive lineman, began his journey to the game at a super combine camp on May 19, 2013. The camp was held at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
Tucker was then selected to attend the super combine camp held in Canton, Ohio, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Stadium in June.
At that time Tucker was selected as one of the participants in the Blue-Grey All American Bowl East-West game.
More than 6,700 senior football players competed to take part in the game, with only 90 selected to participate. Tucker was one of only three players from Ohio selected.
While in Dallas, Tucker visited historical sites including, Dealey Plaza, the 6th Floor Museum, JFK Assassination Landmark, the old red courthouse in downtown Dallas, and the famous Dallas South Fork Ranch. He also made stops in Nashville, Graceland and the Corvette Museum.
Tucker was supported in the trip by many local businesses, Meigs High School administration and the Meigs football coaching staff.
