Los Angeles Dorsey athlete Jaydon Mickens was named the most valuable player of the inaugural U.S. Marine Corps Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl on Tuesday night. Mickens led the West squad to a 17-14 win against the East at Chase Field in Phoenix, Ariz.
Mickens had some company from local standouts. The south Los Angeles County region had four other representatives in the all-star game: linebacker Jeremiah Allison (Dorsey), receivers Malik Gilmore (Lakewood) and Bryce Treggs (St. John Bosco), and punter Conrad Ukropina (Loyola).
Mickens caught the game-tying touchdown in the first half and also added an electrifying 33-yard run. The former USC commit was explosive as kick returner, too.
Treggs, a Cal commit, and Gilmore, an Oregon State commit, had a pair of catches for the East team. Treggs added a 37-yard kickoff return to set up his team near midfield with less than five minutes left but the West came up with a game-clinching turnover.
Ukropina, a Stanford commit, had a 64-yard punt.
