Sowards Excels in Blue-Grey Game earns Top Preformer

Lex Sowards had a huge game Saturday at the Blue Grey All American Bowl. He was the only lineman mentioned in 24/7 Sports "Notebook" of top performers. Here is the article:

Plenty of hype surrounded the most recent the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl in Tampa (Fla.). And as expected, the gathering of talent at Raymond James Stadium, the home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, delivered on the advanced billing. And then some.
The South defeated the North, 47-44, in double overtime Saturday and the many high-profile recruits in attendance from the Class of 2014 did nothing to tarnish their reputations. Also, several under-the-radar prospects played well when given the opportunity.
That said, here’s a look at the well-known recruits that participated on the big stage. The plan is to also reveal the names of players that emerged as individuals to watch moving forward. What follows is a list of who’s who from the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl.

Kendall Sowards, OL, Union (Kent.) Ryle: Same old story, the skill position players receive most of the attention.
