UTC Davis To Play In NFLPA Collegiate Bowl

Friday, December 1, 2017
 
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior linebacker Tae Davis will participate in the 2018 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on Jan. 20, 2018.  This is the seventh year of the event that has moved to the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., for the 2018 edition.

Despite missing two games in 2017, Davis still led the Mocs with 74 tackles.  He had five stops for loss and six hurries.  The Oxford, Ala., native was a four-year letterwinner for Chattanooga from 2014-17.

"I am excited for the opportunity to play in front of such a large collection of NFL personnel," stated Davis.
  "This is the next step towards what I hope is a long career in professional football."

Founded in 2012, the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl gives prospective players the best opportunity to showcase their talents to potential employers and fans. Nearly 200 scouts, player personnel staff, general managers and head coaches from all 32 NFL teams are expected be in attendance to watch live practices, conduct player interviews and review tape.

This is the second year in a row a Moc has been invited to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.  Former All-American offensive lineman Corey Levin, a sixth round pick of the Tennessee Titans in the 2017 NFL Draft, also participated in last year's game. 

Leading this year's batch of players are two NFL legends: Super-Bowl winning coach Mike Martz, who is back at the helm for a fourth straight year, and Hall of Fame cornerback Darrell Green, who is making his debut as a head coach on the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl sidelines.

Why Can't Someone Unstop The Water Buildup Problem At The I-24 Cummings Highway Exit? - And Response

Exit 174 on westbound Interstate 24 is closed again as is the westbound entrance ramp. Cummings Highway is shut as well. I inquired at TDOT on Dec. 28, 2015, why this continues to happen.

Roy Exum: ‘We’ll Lose The Senate!’

A guy who I admire and respect wrote me yesterday. He had just read my story defending Bob Corker for honoring “The Code” due to his true friendship with Phil Bredesen. He is also no stranger to my vivid dislike of the Republican choice to replace Corker in the Senate. Marsha Blackburn is no match against Bredesen on any tier and it is clearly the Republican Party itself that has ... (click for more)
