Blast Stars shine in Pro Bowl Showcase

Tuscaloosa, Alabama. — The 2015 GDFL Pro Bowl Showcase provided a fitting visual on the awards podium: The undersized Receiver and the Linebacker with the gaudy stats standing shoulder-to-shoulder who terrorized the APDFL offense and defense for nearly four quarters and brought home the victory to The Gridiron Developmental Football League 24-14.

“It’s so much fun to play with guys that are playing at such an elite level,” Miller said of winning Co Defensive MVP who he didn’t mine sharing with fellow GDFL Member Chris Murray who played DE for Clarksville Wolfpack in 2014.

The Memphis Blast’ Linebacker was a superstar among superstars this week. One of the biggest cheers Saturday night came when Miller did a mudslide after sacking the quarterback on 4th and 25.

“I just try and enjoy it,” he said. “That is what the GDFL Pro Bowl Showcase is all about: giving the fans a good show. Everybody has worked so hard to get here, you want to enjoy yourself, play some good ball, but guys dancing around having fun is what it’s all about.”

Jay Black was picked as the offensive MVP, Jay Black gave the East Alabama quarterback Charles Drinkard credit he had 15 of 21 passing for 208 yards 2 touchdown throws to who else Jay Black aka “I DON’T GET TIRED” he thanked Drinkard for helping him win the all-star MVP award.

“I looked across and it was pick your poison,” Drinkard said. “I was loving every second of it, getting to throw to someone who could back up every word they spoke, it was a lot of fun.”

Drinkard added that the competitive nature of the game came out down the stretch.

“You get out there between the white lines, everyone is playing now,” he said. “Not the same big hits, but those DBs were trying to pick every ball off. At the end of the games, those guys were rushing the quarterback as they would in a game. So, it picked up like it should and I thought it went well.”

CEO Charles Thompson got the win and added another accolade ahead of the ones he’s sure to receive at The GDFL Honors, which will be Saturday September 6th During Gridiron Bowl VI in New Orleans,La.
