Teradja Mitchell, a senior football player from Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School, was recently presented his honorary game jersey as part of an American Family Insurance Selection Tour, for the 2018 Under Armour All-America High School Football Game.

As part of the three-month American Family Insurance Selection Tour for the Under Armour All-America Game, Mitchell is one of more than 100 players selected to compete in the 10-year anniversary game of the annual Under Armour All-America Game presented by American Family Insurance, a nationally-televised competition spotlighting the country’s top high school seniors.

Along with saluting Teradja Mitchell at his high school, American Family Insurance recognized his father, Terry Mitchell Sr., with the American Family Insurance Dream Champion Award, for being part of his support system.

The 2018 Under Armour All-America Game was slated for Thursday, Jan. 4 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla., and was televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. EST.

“My football dream is to be the best linebacker who has ever played,” said Mitchell.

As the quintessential champion of dreams, along with the encouragement of family members, coaches, friends and communities, American Family Insurance is honored to salute student-athletes as they work hard to pursue their dreams.

Under Armour All-Americans embody American Family Insurance core values, including hard work, inspiration, dedication and committed support from those around them.

“Achieving the dream of being selected as an Under Armour All-American takes more than a wish; it takes having a plan to put into action combined with hard work and dedication,” said Dwayne Maddox, American Family Insurance advertising director. “American Family Insurance celebrates the achievements of these young student-athletes who dare to dream fearlessly, and put in the time and effort to achieve those dreams with the support of family, coaches and community.”
