Trip Thurman will be suiting up for the Florida Gators in 2011, but before he puts on that uniform he’ll be putting on his North Chesapeake Bowl jersey on December 30th in the inaugural Civil War. We talked to the Delaware native on Tuesday about his selection.

Trip Thurman, a 6-foot-6, 310-pound offensive tackle from Dover High School in Dover, Del., has already committed to Florida and has been honored with a spot in this year’s Chesapeake Bowl which he spoke to about on Tuesday night.

“It’s definitely exciting to play in the game and it will be a good experience to play with some of the top guys on the East coast,” Thurman explained. “Getting to play in an All-Star game like this gives me a new experience and kind of gives me a taste of what college football is like before I get there. I’ve worked with guys like Evan Mulrooney, Keith Lumpkin and a few others, so it will be good to be playing with them.”

The Chesapeake Bowl will be played on December 30th and will put the North against the South. The North team is represented by players picked from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware and the South team is comprised of players from Maryland, Washington, D.C., West Virginia and Virginia. The location of the game has not been decided yet, but should be announced shortly and all participants will go home with their own personalized jersey and a custom bowl ring which can be seen below in a lower resolution. The game will be open to the public.
