The FCS Bowl will feature some of the best pro prospects from the FCS, Division II, and Division III levels.
Keep an eye out for these players at Municipal Stadium in Daytona Beach, FL, on Saturday at 9:30 AM, LIVE on FloFootball.
Chazz Middlebrook, RB, MacMurray
You’ve probably never heard of Chazz Middlebrook, but we should all welcome the opportunity to become well acquainted with Division III’s leading rusher of a season ago and a guy that’s piled up more than 3,400 yards over the past two seasons.
James Graves, LB, Central Arkansas
The UCA Bears enjoyed their best season in program history in 2017 and Graves was a massive part of that, helping to spearhead one of the nation’s best defenses en route to an undefeated regular season of FCS play. Graves has ranked no lower than fourth on the team in tackles over the past two seasons and made 70 stops this year.
Kevin Anderson, QB, Fordham
Anderson is among the most decorated players and passers to ever play at Fordham. The fifth-year senior appeared in eight games, throwing for 1,756 yards 14 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2017. A season ago, Anderson threw for 3,183 yards and led the Patriot League with 32 touchdowns. He was named Fordham’s Offensive Player of the Year.
AJ Hantak, LS, Eastern Illinois
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Fenton, MO, native played in more than 50 games during his career as a long snapper at Eastern Illinois. At the conclusion of this season, he was named a honorable mention All-American by Special Teams U. Hantak, perhaps as much as any player in this game, will draw the attention of NFL scouts.
Trysten Ross, LB, Bemidji State
Inside linebacker Trysten Ross played in all 45 games during his four-year career at Bemidji State. He recorded 59 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, and three sacks this season — and also recovered a fumble and intercepted a pair of passes. Ross is a playmaker who plays well in traffic and in space.
Josh Stevens, RB, Angelo State
After posting consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, Stevens is a pro dark horse candidate who shows good power around the line of scrimmage for his size and has an excellent burst at the second level. In the Rams’ season finale, Stevens went for 159 yards and three touchdowns on 18 carries.
Keyson Dingle, LB, Cheyney
Dingle is an athletic playmaker with a propensity for making plays behind the line of scrimmage. He recorded 10 1/2 tackles for a loss — and 58 total tackles — during his senior season at Cheyney, including five tackles for a loss in a season-opening win against LUPA. Dingle figures to be all over the field.
