College football season is over but yet another former Montana Grizzly got a big off-season opportunity in the form of a collegiate all-star game.
This week it was announced that linebacker Brock Coyle will participate in this weekend's NFLPA collegiate bowl, which will take place this Saturday in Carson, California. The Bozeman native Coyle will wear number 56, as he did for the Grizzlies, for the American team this weekend as they battle against the National team.
Last year there were nearly 100 NFL scouts who watched practices and conducted player interviews leading up to the NFLPA collegiate all-star game so it will be a tremendous opportunity for Coyle to advance his goals of playing in the NFL.
As a co-defensive captain, Coyle was Montana's top tackler with 125 stops this past season and also had a team-best five forced fumbles.
Coyle joins Jordan Tripp (in the senior bowl) and Danny Kistler Jr. (in the shrine game) to mark the first time three former Grizzlies will compete in all-star games in the same year.
