LOMPOC, Calif. -

Ever since Ainuu Taua stepped onto the football field at Lompoc High School, he has been a physical force. Now he is Army Strong.

Today the senior was selected to play in the prestigious Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on January 4, 2014. Only 90 high school players out of millions in the nation get to play in this elite game.

Taua is a two-way star for the Braves and already has scholarship offers from UCLA, Arizona, Wisconsin and Ole Miss to name a few.

Last week Bryce Dixon of St. Bonaventure of Ventura was also invited to play.
