Taylor Lewan is having the time of his life.

And the game hasn't even happened yet.

Scottsdale Chaparral's standout offensive lineman, his teammate Craig Roh and Scottsdale Saguaro's Corey Adams are in Orlando, Fla., to play in the Under Armour All-American Game at 6 p.m. Sunday.

The three highly recruited players have been there for nearly a week, practicing and taking part in various activities.

There was a Burger King Skills Challenge that was televised on ESPN2 on Friday in which Adams finished second and Lewan third among all linemen.

Sunday's game will be the culmination, in which 80 of the best high school seniors in the nation face off on national TV (ESPN). The players were divided up into two teams, with Roh, Adams and Lewan all playing together on the White squad.

"This is by far the best experience of my life," Lewan said.

Adams, rated a five-star defensive tackle by recruiting service, had planned to announce his college decision at halftime of the game, but has since changed his mind.

He wants more time to decide between Arizona State, Ohio State and USC, and Saguaro coach John Sanders doesn't blame him.

"It's a gigantic life decision," Sanders said. "Corey's unaffected by (the hoopla)."

Roh and Lewan have already committed to Michigan.

Sanders will be calling the defensive plays for the White team, although he will be limited to base packages by game rules, because the game organizers want to see a lot of points in this exhibition.

Chaparral coach Charlie Ragle and offensive coordinator Dave Huffine will watch from the stands.

"It's weird," said Ragle of not coaching. "But Under Armour is treating us like royalty."

Lewan was worried how all the different personalities would mesh, but has given every aspect of it rave reviews. "All the guys out here just want to have fun," he said.
