Local football standouts selected to U.S. National Team

Two of the top football players in Pasco County — and in all of the Tampa Bay area — have been selected to represent the United States as members of the 2018 Under-19 National Team.

Isaiah Bolden

Wesley Chapel’s Isaiah Bolden and Wiregrass Ranch’s Jordan Miner were among 47 players from 15 states named to the USA Football roster.

As part of the team, Bolden and Miner will compete against Football Canada’s Under-19 National Team on Jan. 19 at 9 p.m., at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, in Arlington, Texas. The game will be streamed live at www.internationalBowlix.com.

The matchup is part of International Bowl IX, which also features 24 high school-and middle school-aged teams from across eight nations on three continents.

Other National Teams will compete against teams representing Canada, Japan, Mexico and the Nordic region, comprised of players and coaches from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

Bolden and Miner, both senior cornerbacks, last month signed their national Letters of Intent to play Division I FBS college football — Bolden to Florida State University; Miner to Penn State University. Both were consensus four-star prospects and ranked among the state’s top players for the 2018 recruiting class.
