Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla. will be the venue that features a collection of elite athletes on Jan. 11, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers won't be in action.

The Bucs' home field is the site for the 2014 Blue-Grey All-American Bowl. The event is an annual all-star showcase for some of the top high school football talent in the United States.

The game is an invitation-only event with rosters featuring the standouts from the Blue-Grey Super Combines. The teams are divided geographically into North and South squads.

Here's a look at the full rosters for both teams, per BlueGreyFootball.com.

Players to Watch

Dalton Sturm, QB - 6'2", 175 pounds - Goliad High School in Texas

As a solid overall athlete who also plays for Goliad's basketball team, Sturm has a chance to make a significant impact on the gridiron in this showcase.

From the looks of his highlight reel at Hudl.com, Sturm has good arm strength, speed and excellent escapability

He could be a tremendous playmaker given the opportunity on the next level.

 

Jamal Williams, RB - 5'10", 200 pounds - Brockton High School in Brockton, Mass.

With solid speed (4.3 seconds in the shuttle and 4.5 in the 40-yard dash) and good strength (bench pressed 185 pounds 21 times and 225 pounds 13 times), per Mass Prep Stars, Williams is an exciting prospect.

Per MaxPreps, Williams rushed for 646 yards on just 92 carries for the Brockton Boxers this past season.

If he can add just a bit more muscle to his frame, he could have a significant impact in college. Like all of the players, Williams participated in the Super Combine. He said this to Mass Prep Stars about his experience:

That experience was the most mind blowing because I got to meet top prospects from all over the world and also compete against them.

There was a prospect dinner, media, Hall of Fame Tour and more. It just showed me that the work you put in will pay off if you stay disciplined and take full advantage of your opportunities.

The director of Blue-Grey Football, Gus Bell, was impressed with Williams as a player and person. He broke down the criteria for selection to the game with Chris McDaniel of Enterprise News:

We look at the combine scores and the game film to see how they perform in a game situation. Then we look at desire, their academics and character.

We liked the way he [Williams] performed at New England and he did even better at the Super Combine in Canton.

With Williams' game-breaking ability, he could be one of the game's stars on Saturday.

 

Keyno Richardson, OL - 6'3", 330 pounds - South Dade in Miami, Fla.

There will be few—if any—that can match the size and power of Richardson at the Blue-Grey game. Richardson is also a track and field athlete in the shot put, and has drawn some interest from the Miami Hurricanes, per 247 Sports.

When there is a prep star with the frame that Richardson has, it is especially intriguing to wonder about their impact in college.

Seeing how he fares against good competition in Tampa will go a long way in determining his ceiling.
