The 2021 All-American Bowl will kick off the Road to the Dome tour on Wednesday, September 16 at 8 p.m. ET on the NBC Sports YouTube channel, honoring seven All-Americans in the first installment of a 15-episode weekly digital series.
In this week’s episode, presented by GEICO, the All-Americans will be virtually presented with their exclusive All-American jerseys provided by adidas. Director of Scouting for 247Sports Barton Simmons will provide in-depth video analysis of each All-American being honored. An interview with five-star quarterback J.J. McCarthy will also be featured within the episode.
“To end my high school career recognized as an All-American is a dream come true and something that I do not take lightly. As a kid watching the All-American Bowl, I dreamed of being one. I understand the magnitude of this moment and I am honored,” said Jordan Hancock.
