Teammates and opponents know how good Sachse quarterback Jalen Mayden, defensive back Isaiah Humphries and wide receiver Drue Jackson are on the gridiron.

So does the United States Army, which this past Thursday officially informed the talented trio of rising seniors they’re eligible to be nominated for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. It’s recognition that Mayden, Humphries and Jackson are three of the top 400 high school football players nationally, said Sgt. Russell Lewis, who officially informed them during a meeting at the high school.
