The U.S. Army All-American Bowl has 16 players from California on the West roster.
Two players, seniors Jordan Payton and Ishmael Adams, are from Oaks Christian.
Payton is a 6-feet-2 wide receiver who is expected to announce where he will play in college after the game on Saturday. His choices have been whittled down to three: Notre Dame, Cal and UCLA.
Adams was a two-way player in high school, at cornerback and running back, and is headed to UCLA as a defensive back.
Other players from California on the West roster include Crespi offensive lineman Jordan Simmons, Dominguez cornerback Brandon Beaver, Monrovia defensive lineman Ellis McCarthy and Muir defensive back Kevon Seymour.
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl will be televised from the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas, on Saturday at 10 a.m. on NBC.
