Mulrooney to Chesapeake Bowl

Mulrooney to Chesapeake Bowl

While the state of Delaware may not packed with talent like other states due to it's small size, it does always provide a number of quality FBS prospects and Maryland commitment Evan Mulrooney was just selected to play for the North squad in the Chesapeake Bowl.

Evan Mulrooney, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound from Salesianum High School in Wilmington, Del., will be following his head coach Bill DiNardo to the Chesapeake Bowl in December and will make his Maryland Terps fans proud as he bolsters the offensive line for the North team.

"That's awesome… I am stoked," Mulrooney exclaimed when he got the news. "I think it's some of the best competition on the East coast going at it and it definitely stacks up with the other big All-Star games going on out there. I think it's awesome to have a game in the Northeast and we're growing into a hotbed in these areas. I'm not saying I am or Delaware is, but even our tiny state has great players like Trip Thurman and Angelo Blackson. Those other states have great talent though. This is the first year and being part of the first game is an honor because it's going to set the example for what it's supposed to be like for years go come when it's a big game."

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. Recommended Stories
