The HBCU Bowl All-Star Football game selects the top 100 draft-eligible seniors from all HBCU Football Conferences: the MEAC, SWAC, SIAC,
CIAA and all HBCU football programs to participate in the nation's premier senior all-star event.
Once that list is set, scouts from the NFL, CFL, UFL, and Arena Football Leagues evaluate the players during a one day Official Combine administered by National Football Scouting of Indianapolis, Indiana. In subsequent years (32) professional teams attended the week's practices and all-star football game.
The previous HBCU All-Star Bowl games produced 6 NFL draft picks. In addition to these, more than 75 HBCU Bowl Alumni have been contracted to compete for a position on an NFL roster, 17 players on a CFL roster and 31 players on an AFL roster. The inaugural HBCU All-Star Bowl game was played in Montgomery, Alabama. In 2010 the game moved to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta where it has remained.
This year's game will once again feature the Best of the Best in HBCU Football. The HBCU All-Star Bowl Committee is proud to announce that a portion of ticket sales from this year's game will benefit the national "Sickle Cell Disease Association" and "Children's Healthcare of Atlanta".
