LANCASTER -- Omar Manning is gracious. In every aspect of life.

Football is the fun part after being named to the Army All American team and receiving his jersey in a ceremony in the auditorium of Lancaster High School on Tuesday. Just the opportunity to honor his family, school, and his country means something to him.

"It's just a great honor," said Manning, one of the top wide receivers in the nation, and in Texas for 2017. "It's been a dream of mine since I was younger. Hard work paying off. I'm headed in the right direction. It's a great honor to represent my country and play with some great players too."
