BG Football Players in All-Star Games

BG had two players compete over the weekend in all-star competition designed to showcase Seniors for NFL Scouts.

Boo Boo Gates made the bigger splash.  He was in the NFLPA game and had an INT and a PR, and while I didn't see it, he was apparently getting a lot of run from the announcing.  I would be surprised if Boo Boo is drafted but I would be 0% surprised if he made an NFL roster.  He's versatile, athletic, and a very good football player.  He'd be a special teams monster, if nothing else.

The other player was Alex Bayer in the East-West Shrine game.  He didn't generate any stats.  He was targeted once by Jordan Lynch, without a reception.

Important to remember that the scouts watch practice, too, and they are just as interested in that, if not more so.
