National Bowl Game at FIU 2

Hundreds of fans, family members, and loyal patrons descended on the campus of Florida International University to see former NFL Coach Mike Stock’s Red Nation team take on current Lehigh Valley Steelhawks Head Coach Chris Thompson’s Blue Nation battle it out in the  2013 4th Annual National Bowl Game. The game was played at Alfosno Field at FIU Stadium in Miami, FL seeing many friends of the program headed to South Beach Miami for sun, dinners, and shopping the weekend of December 8th, 2013. Meanwhile, the 100 players participating in the game were there for glory. Glorious this gameday was as 66 total points were scored as the Red beat the Blue 40-26 in a shootout that saw the best hitting, running, and passing seen in the National Bowl series. National Bowl founder Michael Quuartey said “it was the most talented group we have had yet and we are expecting to see alot of these guys in NFL and CFL camps next year.” Some know stars were honored such as NE-10 Conference Player of the Year QB Joe Clancy while new ones were born when Overall Game MVP QB Mason Espinosa of Ohio Wesleyan stole the show. Scouts from 10 NFL teams were on hand including several CFL and arena league scouts. If you did not get a chance to see the game live it will be shown on replay soon on the Florida Sports Network’s website or on the National Bowl presented by East Preps Youtube channel here:  http://www.youtube.com/user/eastpreps   We suggest next time you make the trip to see the best players you’ve never seen!
