Four Bucs to play in FCS Senior Scout Bowl on SaturdayDecember 12, 2012
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Four Charleston Southern seniors will play in the 3rd Annual FCS Senior Scout Bowl presented by the Collegiate Development Football League (CDFL) this Saturday 15 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
The four Bucs: Charles James, Isaac McKenzie, Cornelius Sterling and Corvaughn Archie will all play on Saturday.
The FCS Senior Scout Bowl is an all-star game designed to allow players to showcase their abilities as representatives of the 124 FCS football programs across the country.
The top FCS players in the nation are split into a North and a South squad who will compete in a full game against one another. The Senior Scout Bowl is a three-day event that starts with the players arriving in Myrtle Beach on Thursday for team meetings. The following day, both squads will have the opportunity for team practices, while certain players will undergo individual workouts with professional scouts. Kickoff for the Scout Bowl is scheduled for 5:00 p.m. from Doug Shaw Stadium in Myrtle Beach.
For the four Bucs’ seniors, the Senior Scout Bowl is a chance to highlight their skills on the gridiron in front of professional scouts.
James was selected the All-Big South First Team this past season. The cornerback out of Jacksonville, Florida will go down as one of the top defensive backs to ever play for Charleston Southern. He finished his career at CSU as the all-time career-leader in interceptions with 12.
The Buccaneers had two athletic defensive linemen starting this past season in Sterling and McKenzie. Sterling, like James, played all four years as a Buc and spent three of those seasons as a linebacker before transitioning to defensive end in his senior campaign. On the defensive line, Sterling used his mobility to finish third on the team in tackles for loss.
McKenzie transferred to CSU from Santa Monica Community College before his junior-year. The six-foot, 260-pound defensive tackle led the team with 7.5 tackles for loss and four sacks in his senior season.
Archie played two seasons at wide receiver for the Buccaneers after playing his first two years at Fresno City Community College. Archie earned his first career start at CSU in the season-finale of his junior year. He then came back to start over half the games this past season.
