West Virginia commit and Fairmont Senior defensive lineman Dante Stills will play in the Under Armour All-American game on January 4th. The game will be played in Orlando, Florida at Camping World Stadium. It will be televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. EST.
“I’m hoping to get a lot out of it,” Stills said about the game. “I’m the type of guy that wants to learn and get better, so I’ll be looking to gain a lot from all the coaches, players, and former players.”
The ceremony where Stills received the jersey took place at Fairmont Senior High School as part of the American Family Insurance Selection Tour. Stills was one of two winners who was chosen by the American Family Insurance #DreamFearlessly fan vote.
“It’s just a blessing,” Stills said when asked about winning the fan vote. “It definitely means a lot that people wanted me in this game.”
On Wednesday the four-star prospect received his jersey.
WVU was able to keep the No. 1 player in West Virgina at home, as Stills has committed to play for the Mountaineers. It won’t take Stills long to get to Morgantown as he is from Fairmont, West Virginia, just 20 minutes south on I-79.
Good luck Dante!
