Tyler King, an RB/LB and senior class member of the Pine-Richland WPIAL Championship Football team, has been selected to play in the International Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington Texas, on January 18, 2019.
Established in 2010, the International Bowl is the longest-running annual series of high school-aged international football teams. This year’s event – International Bowl X – will convene 16 teams from four continents across four age divisions for two game days of global competition. The International Bowl is managed by USA Football, a member of the U.S. Olympic committee and the sport’s national governing body.
The U.S. Under-19 National Team, guided by Pine-Richland's very own Eric Kasperowicz, will play a foreign national team to be determined in the weeks ahead. All International Bowl X games will be played at AT&T Stadium, home of college football’s Goodyear Cotton Bowl and the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. Age divisions of competing national teams are Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, and Under-19. The 10th annual event will feature 12 days of team activities, skill development, and practices.
