UConn well represented in Tropic Bowl

It is college all-star showcase season.

While no UConn players are in the major games like the Senior Bowl, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl and East-West Shrine Game, they did get to take part in lesser known events.

As I previously mentioned, safety Andrew Adams was in Texas for the recently-completed College Gridiron Showcase. That event is run a little differently, there is not an actual all-star game but practices, scrimmages, interviews with scouts, workouts so it is set up more like a combine. I've yet to see any reports of how Adams looked but if they post a video of the scrimmages as they did a year ago, I will take a look.

I did notice last night that defensive lineman Kenton Adeyemi, linebacker Marquise Vann and offensive lineman Tyler Samra were all on the American team roster for the Tropic Bowl played yesterday in Miami. I just received an email with final stats and Vann finished with 3 1/2 tackles and they did pass on this quote

"Tyler Samra played well And showed a toughness and great feet in front of NFL Scouts." Michael Quartey Esq.Tropic Bowl Founder

The American team won 38-14.

I also saw a tweet saying that Adeyemi had a strong showing.

White Team Kenton Adeyemi (UConn) showed versatility by playing DE and DT on Sunday. Also was very disruptive in the backfield.
