Norcross Youth Selected to Participate
in National All-Star Bowl at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX.
Norcross, GA.-- While attending an Offense-Defense Football Camp this Summer at Oglethorpe University, Zakye Barker, 8 years old, of Norcross, Ga, was named an Offense-Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 7th-annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX.
Zakye, a Linebacker for North Dekalb Youth Athletic Association, was selected for this honor from a group of young athletes numbering in the thousands across the country. Zakye played extremely representing his city of Norcross and his football league NDYAA, easily validating the Bowl Selection Committee's choice in tabbing Zakye for the All-Star tilt.

football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the country and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap, and Dez Bryant among others before they were collegiate stars.
