Committee leader and CEO of Dream Sports Group, Shannon Riley, says “the athletes that were selected have exemplified great leadership skills on and off the field, and have stood out as leading performers in each position. We believe that these are the next stars of the game, and we want to recognize them for their outstanding achievements and help them get to the next level.”

"Manuel is built like a fortress. He can take on linemen twice his size, shed blocks, and still emerge from the trenches ready for the next play. He can diagnose plays with a talent that goes beyond his years, anticipating offensive movements with foresight that disrupts the rhythm of opposing teams. He communicates seamlessly with his fellow defenders and leads by example. We are excited to see him display his talents in Los Angeles, CA!"

We received over 10,000 nominations and he is 1 of 360 student athletes from across the nation selected. Dream Sports Group congratulates him on this prestigious honor and once in a lifetime opportunity.
