Three South Sound football players have been selected to participate in the 2010 U.S. Army National Combine next week in San Antonio, Texas. Juniors Cornelius Edison of Curtis, Ionatana Pritchard of Clover Park and Dalton Blackmore of Kentwood will join the nation’s top junior prospects at the Alamodome.

Four other Washington players have been selected. They are: Justin Lane of Lakewood High School, Alec Martin of Wenatchee and Charlie Hopkins and Bishop Sankey of Gonzaga Prep.

The combine takes place Jan. 7-9, during “Bowl Week” of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Lakes defensive tackle Sione Potoa’e and Skyline quarterback Jake Heaps will play in that game, which will be televised at 10 a.m. on Jan. 10 on NBC.

Justin Lane of Lakewood High School (North Lakewood, Wash.); Alec Martin of Wenatchee High School (Wenatchee, Wash.) and Tana Pritchard of Clover Park High School (Lakewood, Wash.) has been selected to participate in the 2010 U.S. Army National Combine, joining an elite group of the nation’s best underclass student-athletes.

Past combine participants include Ted Ginn Jr. (Miami Dolphins), Jamaal Charles (Kansas City Chiefs), Tim Tebow (Florida), Colt McCoy (Texas), Matt Stafford (Detroit Lions) and Myron Rolle (Florida State).

The Combine will take place on January 7-9, 2010, during “Bowl Week”—the week-long festivities leading up to the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl on Saturday, January 9, 2010, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
