Army Reserve Lt. Col. David Eric Bentley of Campbellsville was a member of the U.S. Army support staff who helped coordinate and plan the recent All-American Bowl high school all-star football game played at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas on Jan. 5.

The nationally-televised bowl game was sponsored by the U.S. Army and pitted the top high school football athletes in the nation against each other in an East vs. West contest. This was the eighth year that the Army has sponsored the game. In this year's match-up, the East team managed to outscore the West team, 33-23.

Bentley, a general surgeon and commander, is a member of the 933rd Forward Surgical Team based in Paducah. The reservist has served in the military for four years.

He is the son of Farrell G. and Addie L. Bentley of Fayette, Ala.

The colonel received a bachelor's degree in 1978 from the University of Wyoming at Laramie. He earned a master's degree in 1981 from the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa.
