Greenville sports management firm Wyatt Sports announced on Monday, November 5 that it had formed a group to launch a new venture: the South Carolina College All Star Bowl. The first game will be played on the campus of North Greenville University on Saturday, March 23 2013.
This football game, destined to become a tradition, draws players, coaches and community partners from across South Carolina with two primary purposes. The first is to showcase the talented football players who are either from South Carolina or played college football in the state. The second is to rally support for Meals-On-Wheels chapters across the state who serve thousands of meals each week to neighbors who depend on them.
The date was chosen to provide additional exposure for athletes who may not have been drafted by the NFL, but are capable of playing at the professional level. Teams from the Upstate and Lowcountry will be selected from players who no longer have NCAA eligibility. Preparing for the event has meant securing commitments for television broadcasts, facility rentals, coaches, player mentors and support staff. David Wyatt, founder of Wyatt Sports, can’t hide his excitement when he speaks about the upcoming game. With good reason, as two of the State’s best known football personalities – Danny Ford and Willie Jeffries – are leading teams from the Upstate and Lowcountry, respectively. For participating players the game experience will include practices with legendary coaches, contact with mentors, and the opportunity to play in front of scouts from several professional football leagues.
For businesses the game presents a sponsorship opportunity, exposure on television to parts of three states, and a VIP bowl game experience. For fans it means more football. Everybody wins!
