RENO - NV Reno High School's Brandon Kaho is one of just 100 players named to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"I definitely dreamed about moments like this and moments in the future, but I never thought it'd happen, so I'm just very grateful and very blessed and it's more than just a football game, it's for the people who serve our country," Brandon Kaho told KOLO 8 Sports.

"What was fitting today were the qualities the army soldiers that presented him the award talked about, the values of integrity, respect, work ethic, to be a soldier, I thought in many ways Brandon has shown those qualities on the football field, in the classroom, and in the community as well," said Reno football coach Dan Avansino.

Kaho is certainly looking forward to the opportunity to compete with the best.

"It's the top 100 players in the country and see who you're gonna play with and that's who you're gonna see in college, so I'm excited for that and just building bonds," added Kaho.

While many are excited to see where Kaho lands in college, he has unfinished business with the Huskies who are a perfect 11-0.

"Creating the bonds with our coaches and teammates it really helps me as a player, it takes a lot of weight off my shoulders knowing that I can trust my teammates and it's just been really special this year and I really do hope it doesn't end soon," said Kaho.
