MIAMI, Fla. – On Sunday, December 8, Curry College football captains Sam Calley (Weymouth, Mass.) and Kevin Fruwirth (Agawam, Mass.) played in the 2013 National Bowl Senior All-Star Game at Florida International University in Miami. Calley and Fruwirth joined more than 90 of the best Non-FBS college football players from around the country. Both former Colonels were assigned to the Red Nation roster, and helped lead their team to a 40-26 win over the Blue Nation team.

The National Bowl Game is an annual post-season college football all-star game consisting of top players from Non-FBS schools. In the first three years, the National Bowl was played at J. Birney Crum Stadium in Allentown, Pa. The 4th Annual National Bowl Game was played at Alfonso Field at FIU Stadium.

The National Bowl Game showcases All-American and All-Conference seniors from around the nation that travelled to the game from over 30 states representing over 400+ Division 2, 3, and FCS schools. Players travel to the game from as far as Massachusetts, Texas, Arkansas, Oregon, Colorado, Michigan, Utah and South Dakota.

The National Bowl is the elite and only current post-season all-star game to focus on players below D1/FBS that get the opportunity to play in front of several NFL and CFL scouts. The rosters give NFL/CFL scouts a chance to view and get to know some of the best players from smaller schools over the bowl weekend.

The National Bowl is coached by pro coaches and has featured coaches such as NFL Coach Mike Stock, formerly of the Green Bay Packers, who returned for the 2013 game in Miami. The game has been attended by scouts from the NFL's St Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs, the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, AFL's Cleveland Gladiators, and Philadelphia, Soul. All 32 NFL teams receive and review the National Bowl game film and the game has been touted by the Sports Agents Blog as a secret weapon for smaller school prospects.
