Evans to Play in All- American Bowl

by Mike Organ

Landon Evans, who played for Lexington in 2008 and 2009, got invited to play in the All-American Bowl Game Classic. Landon played for Bryan St. Joseph this past season and had an outstanding year. As a quarterback he completed 22 consecutive passes. Late in the season he broke a couple of bones in his throwing hand so he moved to fullback and rushed for over 400 yards in the last three games.

Landon earned a Commended National Merit Scholar honor while at Lexington, based on his score on the PSAT test taken as a junior. He was one of 50,000 students so honored.

Landon is competing in the AA Bowl as of this writing. The purpose of the All-American Bowl is to provide an audience for those outstanding athletes who have been overlooked in the recruiting procedures. In 2008, 63 of the players in the AA game got offers from schools after having been rediscovered by the recruiters.

Landon is 6’3” 190 lbs. with 4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash. He has been rated highly by Coach John Paul Young’s scouting combine, based on film study.
