The Collegiate Development Football League has joined up with D3football.com to present the 2014 D3 Senior Classic Super Senior Watch List. The list, honoring the top seniors heading into the 2014 Division III football season, was selected by the 2014 D3 Senior Classic bowl committee and the Team America coaching staff.  It is based upon player nominations and evaluations made by college coaches, college sports information directors, regional scouts, and media.

The selected players are on the watch list for invitation to the 2014 D3 Senior Classic. The all-star game pits two teams of Division III seniors against each other, and will be played in December 2014, marking the game’s sixth season.

In addition, these players will be evaluated for selection to the roster of Team America, which will represent the USA in scheduled international games in 2015. Team America is the only privately funded USA national team representing free agents and promoting American football on an international level.  The 2015 schedule includes contests in New York, Grand Cayman Island, and Myrtle Beach.

“Everyone here at the CDFL is excited about the 2014 season,” said George St. Lawrence. “Good luck to all the D3 senior players. We hope you have great games, great success, and great memories ahead in the 2014 season!”

“This is going to be a great season. We look forward to seeing these top seniors in action this season and seeing who plays in this year’s D3 Senior Classic,” said D3football.com executive editor Pat Coleman.

In 2014 more than 300 players participated in the CDFL’s Player Scout Bowl Series consisting of four games designed to showcase senior talent on the FCS, D2, D3 and NAIA levels.  The National scouting Showcase is the nation’s premier scouting opportunity for post-collegiate players.  It is held annually, in December, in Myrtle Beach, S.C. To learn more about the 2014 D3 Senior Classic and other CDFL events please visit www.playCDFL.com.
