SAN ANTONIO — Louisville, fresh off a Sugar Bowl victory over Florida, got another big win Saturday.

Wide receiver James Quick announced that he'd stay in his hometown and play for the Cardinals, and he also scored on a 34-yard touchdown pass to help the East team beat the West 15-8 in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Quick, a Louisville Trinity standout who was named Mr. Football, scored on a pass from Jeremy Johnson for the East.

"It's home, and there's nothing better than being home," Quick announced on ESPN. "Overall, they have a real good balance, and I like the coaches. They're real good guys. I know those guys really get after it. Really, it was about that bond that I felt with them.

"It was probably one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make. I mean, you can't go wrong with either one in (Ohio State's) Urban Meyer or (Oregon's)Chip Kelly. I just decided to stay home. I felt it was best for me."

Alabama running back commitment Derrick Henry ran for 53 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries, showcasing the form that made him a key recruit for the Crimson Tide.

Henry also scored on a 2-point conversion.
