CDFL International Scout Bowl Exposes Draft Eligible Prospects To Teams Overseas
What: CDFL International Scout Bowl
When: Thursday – Saturday, April 3 – 5, 2014
Where: Hillburn, New York
About: Providing opportunity for young men to advance from high school to college was achieved by the CDFL in 2008. For the college player trying to get a crack at the pros, the CDFL’s Collegiate Bowl Series answered the call by completing 22 showcase bowl games from 2009 to the present. In April 2014, the CDFL will afford yet another chance to help young men follow their gridiron dreams. This chance comes in the form of the International Scout Bowl. The ISB was born from the realization that there is a need for one more scouting opportunity before the NFL draft. In addition, this game provides the final opportunity for players who did not perform well in their pro-day or combine, have been excluded by injury, or have been overlooked to this point to participate in such events. With American football growing rapidly in Canada, Europe and Asia, US players need to showcase themselves on a global stage to an international audience. The CDFL is adding to the its established relationships with the North American and European leagues to create a game that provides the final opportunity for the best free agents available heading into the upcoming 2014 seasons. The International Scout Bowl is the only game available in the spring of 2014. The game is designed to promote international players to international markets. The selection process is by invitation and is extremely competitive. The rosters are limited to provide maximum playing time for the participants.
