Chesapeake Bowl - North Roster

The Chesapeake Bowl has now come to an agreement with Towson University and will play their inaugural game at Johnny Unitas Stadium on December 30th. The initial North roster has already been completed and has a star-studded cast with FBS talent from Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.

The Chesapeake Bowl will be moving to Camden Yards in 2011, however the first ever game will be played between the North and South teams at Towson University this year and brings you the first glimpse of the initial North roster. The roster was compiled based on talent scouting and a tryout which was held in Annapolis this summer, but some extra players may also be added this season for outstanding play.
