(KTVI)-St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long has been named to the 2012 USA Football All-Fundamentals Team. The team honors 26 NFL players, 11 offense, 11 defense, and four special teams, whose good football technique should be emulated by young players.
Each player chosen for the All-Fundamentals Team will receive a $1,500 equipment grant from USA Football to donate to the youth or high school football program of his choice.
A fan vote will determine All-Fundamentals Team captains at www.facebook.com/usafootball. Fans may vote for one captain on offense, defense and special teams. USA Football will award each of the three captains a $3,000 equipment grant to donate and an All-Fundamentals Team helmet trophy. Voting is open through Jan. 21.
