Warren Uptain of Durango will soon show off his talents in the Lone Star State, in front of multiple high school and college coaches on a national stage.

The Durango Demons offensive lineman will take to the bright lights of AT&T Stadium — home of the Dallas Cowboys — in Arlington, Texas, for the 2024 Dream All-American Bowl Jan. 12-15, 2024.

Uptain, a 5-foot-11, 260-pound left guard, will take part in the event’s all-star game and performance drills.

“I'm really excited,” Uptain said. “It's going to be a blast and a good learning experience. It's going to be new competing with talent at every single position, which is going to be really fun at the same time and hopefully, I'll learn a ton.”

Uptain also has invitations to the Army All-American Combine in December and the NextGen All-American camp in January as well.

The sophomore emphasized his need for more in-game reps, but is confident in his football IQ and his communication on the line of scrimmage.

Despite a coaching change, Uptain said it didn’t take him much time to pick up the new scheme, and continue playing physical and with a nasty edge.

Although the Dream All-American Bowl is months away, Uptain wants to showcase his physicality up front and his knack for knowing incoming plays before others do.

“Then I want to show them that I'm also a real good locker room guy and a good leader up front,” he added. “But then in the game, I'm technical and finishing through the echo of the whistle every play.”
