Hug high school junior Roosevelt Calhoun has been selected to play for the USA National Under-18 Football Team.
Calhoun, a Hawks running back and linebacker, is the only player from the state of Nevada to be selected to play in the game next month in Texas.
He was nominated by his former coach, and then had to compete in a pair of tryouts in the Bay Area. He will play for Team USA against Canada in the International Bowl in February.
He was named to the All-North football team this season.
The trip to Arlington is not cheap, and the school is trying to help by asking for donations.
Anyone interested in helping can call Athletic Director Marv Mercer at 327-5973 or send donations to:
