Pro Bowl Proves Talent Outside Of FBS

What do Lane College, Furman University, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania and John Carroll University all have in common?

Well for starters, chances are these aren’t the first schools that pop into your head when you think of college football. More importantly however, is the fact that each of these institutions have produced top-flight NFL talent, attending the 2013 Pro Bowl.

Big name Division-I FBS programs dominate the headlines and are the center of attention in college football. So much so that it is extremely easy for the proverbial “little guys” to get overlooked.

In the case of college football the “little guys” are programs in FCS (formerly Division I-AA), Division II, and Division III athletics.

Football players at these levels with hopes of playing in the NFL have a larger uphill battle than Division I athletes. Their national exposure isn’t nearly as great, so in order to be noticed they must shine when an opportunity presents itself.

When a player from a non-FBS program makes it to the NFL and gains staying power, it is a success for all athletes in similar situations.

Even more impressive is if one of those players is able to perform at a Pro Bowl-caliber.

Of the 116 players that have been chosen to represent their respective teams in the 2013 Pro Bowl, only nine attended non-FBS schools. They are as follows: Read more »

Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander spent all season backing up London Fletcher at inside linebacker, and that trend will likely continue on Sunday.

The Pro Bowl rosters are set up with two inside linebackers, Alexander will likely be the primary backup to Fletcher and Cardinals’ linebacker Daryl Washington. It’s a role that Alexander relished all season, and one that he embraces on the Pro Bowl stage.

“From what I hear, yeah, I will be playing defense,” he said.  “I mean, they only have two inside linebackers so I will have to play. I assume so.”

With his versatility on defense, Alexander could even backup teammate Ryan Kerrigan at outside linebacker.

Alexander will be suiting up for the Packers’ coaching staff, a staff that runs the base 4-3 scheme in Green Bay. Alexander has never worked with members of their staff before, but was prepared for the opportunity. Read more »

This Sunday at 4 p.m. ET, the 2013 Pro Bowl will kickoff at the sunny Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The best players in the NFL this season (or at least most popular) will showcase their talents, and to enjoy some relaxing fun under the sun.

When not relaxing in the tropical heat, players have spent the past week practicing with their regular season conference foes, preparing for Sunday’s AFC vs. NFC clash. There was need for some introductions, but for others it was a chance to reconnect with childhood friends and former teammates. Read more »
