Ross Douglas - CB - Avon (OH) Avon

  1. Do you think this game has the potential to achieve the same amount of prestige as the other two major all-star games? The UA game did it with the power of ESPN behind it, not sure if semper fi can do the same....

    1. No, I don't think it will get as big as the others. It's starting from behind, and as you said, the UA game got jump-started because of its attachment to ESPN. Unless sponsorships get mucked up or some new allegiances are made, the Semper Fi bowl will probably be a second-tier game.

  2. Wrong...Definitely think they'll achieve the success Tom Lemming Chris Dombroski and Brett Cooper are apart of the committee...These men were largely part of the success of the AA game...There are many great athletes in this nation that didn't get picked for the other games but that doesn't mean they couldn't compete either! Semper Fi allows those players to have a plateau to stand on...

    1. Does that really mean I'm wrong? Or does it mean that you have a different opinion? I think it's the latter.

  3. Kyle Bosch is a consensus top 100 player (i think?) I wonder why he chose this game when at this point it's considered behind the other 2 in prestige. Could be still end up playing in one of the big 2?

  4. I thought Hurst was in the Semper Fi bowl last year..

    1. Yes, he was. I must have had a brain fart when I had Charlton listed instead of Hurst.
