The national Selection Tour sponsored by American Family Insurance is an expansion of the Under Armour All-America Game. As part of American Family Insurance’s involvement, the events will raise awareness around teen driving safety and recognize the student athletes, as well as the coaches, families and communities who have helped make these players’ dreams a reality.
“These athletes are achieving their dreams as result of their own dedication and the support of their coaches and teammates, their families and friends,” said Deborah Peterson, American Family Insurance’s customer relationship marketing director. “In turn, they are spreading the teen safe driving message to other students in the hope that they, too, will be able to reach their dreams.”
