Having been selected to play in the twentieth edition of the All-American Bowl, Guillory will play in the annual East vs. West matchup on Saturday, January 4, 2020, in the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The Bowl will be nationally televised, live on NBC at 1 p.m. ET, and will feature the nation’s top 100 high school football players.
"This is an accolade that hopefully, I am the first of many to be a part of this big game," Guillory said. "It was first come, first serve, but it also represents 99 reasons why I chose to go to LSU."
Guillory was selected by the All-American Bowl Selection Committee, consisting of the All-American Bowl and 247Sports. All-Americans are eligible for the All-American Bowl Player of the Year Award, the Anthony Muñoz Lineman of the Year Award, the Defensive Player of the Year Award, the All-American Bowl Man of the Year, the All-American Bowl MVP Award.
Only 100 football players receive the honor of putting on the All-American Bowl jersey each year. Each player selected to participate will culminate in their high school careers at the All-American Bowl.
Guillory will be signing to LSU on December 13.
