College All-Star Bowl To Feature SC State Flavor

SC State receiver Tyler McDonald will play in the College All-Star Bowl this February. 

After a down 2012 season, South Carolina State reemerged as a MEAC power this fall. The Bulldogs went 9-4, finishing second to Bethune-Cookman and hosting a home playoff game. Tyler McDonald and kicker Nick Belcher were a big reason for that success. The two seniors will get a chance to extend their careers and show off for pro scouts, as they have both accepted invitations to the College All-Star Bowl. 

McDonald had a banner senior season, recording 50 catches for 935 yards and seven touchdowns. Those numbers capped off a solid career for McDonald, who set a set school records with 158 receptions and 2,368 yards. The 6’3, 190 yard receiver is a legit pro prospect.

Belcher was a steady force in the kicking game for SC State, hitting 17 of 24 attempts. He also averaged 39 yards per punt, and was named second-team all-MEAC.

The College All-Star Bowl will take place Feb. 14 at Furman University. Former SC State coach Willie Jeffries will coach the “American” team.
