NFL and HBCU Combine and Legacy Bowl Game

NFL and HBCU Combine and Legacy Bowl Game

HBCU Legacy Bowl week will officially kick off hosting the 2023 HBCU Combine at the New Orleans Saints’ Ochsner Sports Performance Center in Metairie, LA from 8:00 AM to 2:30 pm CT on Feb. 20.

47 HBCU student-athletes were invited by the National Football League and HBCU Legacy Bowl to participate in the event. The football players will be able to meet and interact with NFL executives, scouts, and decision-makers.

NFL has partnered with HBCU and the Black College Football Hall of Fame to have the HBCU Combine in New Orleans along with the Legacy Bowl,” Doug Williams said to HBCU Legends. “Because a lot of those guys who are going to be at the HBCU Combine will transition into playing in an HBCU Legacy Bowl game. I thought it was a great thing for us to have.”

The second HBCU Legacy Bowl will showcase the talent of 100 HBCU student-athletes hoping to earn a roster spot in the NFL, CFL, USFL, XFL, or other professional leagues.
