MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — While attending an offense-defense football camp this summer, Hunter and Hudson Shamblin, both 10, of Gallipolis, were named Offense-Defense All-Americans and invited to participate in the 10th annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach, Fla.

Hunter and Hudson, both running backs and defense backs for Gallipolis Big Bend football team, were selected for this honor from a group of young athletes numbering in the thousands across the country and played well representing Gallipolis, validating the Bowl Selection Committee’s choice in tabbing them both for the All-Star tilt.

The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a week-long series of events including the 10th annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing eight of the top high school seniors in the country and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Joe Haden, Earl Thomas and Dez Bryant, among others, before they were collegiate and later professional stars.

Offense-Defense Sports has been running full-contact football instructional camps for the past 45 years and currently operates in approximately 40 camp locations nationwide every spring and summer.
