NORFOLK, Va. Norfolk State receiver Xavier Boyce has accepted an invitation to play in this Saturday’s National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Calif. at The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills.

 

Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised live on ESPN2. ESPNU will also air live broadcasts from practices on Thursday, January 17.

 

Boyce transferred to NSU from Virginia Tech prior to the 2011 season and earned first-team All-MEAC and Boxtorow.com HBCU All-America honors in his first season with the Spartans. He led the team with 68 receptions, the most by a Spartan in the Division I era. During the 2012 season, Boyce led the Spartans with 58 catches for 623 yards and four touchdown catches and ranked fifth in the conference in receptions and sixth in yards. His 2012 performance earned him an All-MEAC second-team selection. Boyce finished his NSU career with 126 catches, which is fourth all-time in program history.

 

For one week preceding the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, the roughly 100 participants will receive an in-depth introduction to the union – the primary resource for information on the business of football and how to succeed in the NFL and in post-football careers.

 

Pro football players and coaching legends will work with the game’s future stars, giving them first-hand insight on what it takes to win on and off of the field. Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will serve as the head coaches for the American and National Teams. Player Ambassadors for the game include former NFL players Terrell Davis, Hank Baskett, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Lorenzo Neal and Andre Reed. For more information including full rosters for the game, visit http://collegiate.nflpa.com.
