CHSCA HoF Classic Military Bowl teams hold draft, release rosters

The top 50 rated players from the Military Bowl combine gather as WFSB's John Holt begins the first Bowl draft Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford

In front of a nice little crowd of parents, coaches and well-wishers, the first CHSCA Hall of Fame Classic Military Bowl draft was held Wednesday evening at Rentschler Field.

The top 50 rated players from a combine held at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven were invited to partake in the draft at Rentschler Field, while the remaining 55 were drafted privately afterward and released this morning.

So we now have a roster for this new endeavor, which will commence June 26 at Rentschler Field.

2013 Military Bowl All Star Roster Sheet

Windsor’s Rob Fleeting, the coach of Team Marines,  won the coin toss and picked his son, quarterback Quinn Fleeting with the first overall pick:

That left Ledyard’s Jim Bunocore, the coach of Team National Guard, to settle on Xavier QB and UConn recruit Tim Boyle.

Through 25 rounds the two coaches picked, many times grabbing as many of the players familiar to them ahead of overs.

With Xavier’s Sean Marinan and Andy Guyon serving as assistants for Team National Guard, all but one Xavier senior (OL Kevin Dean) ended up on their squad. All but one Windsor senior (WR Terrell Huff) ended up on Team Marines with Windsor coach Rob Fleeting. Every eligible Ledyard player was selected to play for Buonocore’s Team National Guard.

The drafting wrapped with “Mr. Irrelevant,” Bullard-Haven’s running back John Shannon, who played the part of neglected Green Room draftee, but was pretty excited when his name was called by Buonocore.

Naturally with these all-star games, a number of big names aren’t participating. While Class LL champion Xavier has massive representation and Class M champion Hillhouse as well, Hand only had OL Cam Gravina available. Yale recruit Peter Gerson and UConn recruit Matt Walsh were both unavailable, as were several other high-profile recruits — Andrew Isaacs (Manchester, Boston College); Tommy Meyers (Coventry, UConn), Marquis Little (Manchester, Boston College) — are also not playing.

“It’s not as much as you’d like,” Buonocore said. “But everybody’s got their reasons. I still think there’s enough. It should be a competitive game. There’s some pretty good talent out there.”
