Some of the nation’s best high school football players will hit the field together Sunday afternoon in Orlando, Fla.

The tenth-annual Under Armour All-America Football Game takes place at 1 p.m. ET inside the city’s Camping World Stadium. It will be aired on ESPN.

The UA All-America Game will feature more than 90 of the country’s top players this year.

Overall, the game has produced 126 NFL Draft picks, according to the game’s Web site.

There are three players taking part in the game on Sunday with Kentucky connections.

The first is offensive lineman Jedrick Wills. Wills played high school football at Lafayette High School in Lexington. He will continue his playing career next season at Alabama.

Meanwhile, there are two players at Sunday’s game who have committed to Louisville. Both Russ Yeast, out of Indiana, and C.J. Avery, out of Mississippi, are excited to play for the Cards next year.
