Success on the football field always has and always will start in the trenches, and when the FBU All-American Bowl kicks off in January, both sides of the line will be loaded with talent.
One of those talents is Westfield, New Jersey native Bryan Felter. Felter is a two-way lineman for the class of 2020, and he was recently selected to play in the All-American Bowl for the second year in a row. Standing at an impressing 6’2, 275-pounds, it’s easy to see how Felter can dominate on the gridiron, and he really put in the work to get the back-to-back All-American honors.
“It’s an amazing honor to be recognized as one of the top offensive linemen in the country,” Felter said. “After being selected last year, I was determined to make it back to the All-American game and knew that I would have to work extremely hard to be selected again this year.”
That hard work has been paying off for Felter, regardless of where he plays. Felter was named the number one offensive linemen at the FBU New Jersey Camp earlier in 2015. He also traveled to Dublin, Ohio to compete at FBU Top Gun, where he was named to the Youth1.com All-Top Gun First Team Offense. Felter completed his impressive summer by being on the Youth1.com Elite101 list, where he was listed at number 22.
Felter also participated in the FBU National Championship tournament last season playing for FBU North Jersey. Although the results didn’t go the way he had planned, he still had a great experience and was able to add another award to his long list of accomplishments.
“It was an awesome experience playing against top caliber players from other states,” Felter said. “Although we lost in the second round, I did well enough to be selected as an Eastbay Youth All-American.”
This season, Felter played in the NJSYFL for the Westfield PAL team, and he was a major factor in the dominating success of the team. Going 10-1, the team won the league championship and became 4-time Super Bowl Champs, posting a 42-2 record over a four-year span.
As you can see by watching his highlights, Felter was a beast on both sides of the ball. He opened up the offense with great blocking and was living in the backfield on the defensive side of the ball, where he posted 11 sacks, 15 tackles for loss, while also blocking a punt and recovering a fumble.
When the All-American Bowl takes place in the coming months, it won’t be hard to spot Felter on the field. His size and physicality on the field make him an immediate standout, and he’s looking to take in the FBU All-American Bowl experience one more time before he hits the high school level.
“My goal when I get there is to be the best offensive lineman on the field,” Felter said. “I’m looking forward to playing with and against the best competition in the country.”
