2019 Blue-Grey All-American Bowl


Hello my name is Noah McCray.  I am a senior at University Preparatory Charter School in Rochester, NY.  As a student-athlete, I am also a captain on the football team.  Over the summer my varsity head coach, Kala Gause nominated me for the Blue Grey All-American Bowl.   Last week I was notified by mail that the Blue Grey selection committee selected me out of 7,500 other nominees from around the country to participate in this prestigious event.

The 2019 Blue Grey All American Bowl will be played in Tampa Bay, Florida, and telecast live on ESPN 3 on January 5th, 2019.  And I am honored to be able to represent the State of NY, the City of Rochester, and Uprep Charter School as a participant in this bowl game.


The cost to attend this event are as follows:
$2542 Total Cost

$550 Registration (deadline to lock my spot is October 17, 2018.)

$1992 Includes hotel accommodations for 2 nights at Doubletree Suites Hilton Tampa Bay.  Blue Grey Bowl Game helmet, jersey and pants.  All-American Ring.  VIP Blue Grey All American Bowl Tickets. (to be paid by December 1st, 2018)

I feel as though I have earned this opportunity to attend this event.  It is the best thing I have ever had happen to me in my life so far.  I am currently 18 years old, and in the city where I am from (Rochester, NY) young people are known for crime and violence.  I am very happy to be acknowledged on a national level for something positive, and hope other young people in Rochester follow.  

Academically, this is my best year so far and I plan on maintaining nothing less than a B average for the year.  In college I plan to study criminal justice, my lifetime goal is to become an FBI agent to help reduce crime among young people.

My family and I are asking for $25 donation or whatever your heart leads you to help support me to get closer to the goal needed for me to attend this event.  Sharing this page equally shows your support if you cannot afford to help donate.   

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.  I promise to make my family, school, and community proud of me.  I truly appreciate any support!
