CRAWFORDVILLE, Fl. (WTXL) - Over the years, Wakulla High School has produced several top notch football players, with three athletes making All-American games their senior years. This afternoon, linebacker Keyshawn Greene became the latest in the War Eagle legacy.

The Florida State commit received his All-American Bowl jersey this afternoon, just one of nine athletes across the state of Florida to receive a coveted jersey this year. Greene is the 19th rated linebacker in the country according to ESPN, and the 37th overall recruit in the state of Florida.

"I've been waiting for this opportunity to come, so now it's just about working hard in the weight room and off the field and in the classroom," he said of his special day. "I told my momma when I was younger that I was going to build her a house when I get big, so this mean a lot to me."

The 2020 All-American Bowl will be played January 4th in San Antonio Texas. Of his commitment to Florida State? Greene said he wants Odell Haggins to be the head coach, and if Florida State decides to go with someone else, he said he'd keep his options open.
