NCAA Seniors Set to Showcase Abilities

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - College

football seniors are once again using the site of the old Blue-Gray game to try

to impress pro teams.

The first Raycom College Football All-Star

Classic is being held Saturday in the Montgomery stadium that hosted the

now-defunct game that was a Christmas Day tradition until a decade ago.

The quarterbacks include Purdue's Robert

Marve for the Stripes team and Pittsburgh's Tino Sunseri for the Stars.

The game features an assortment of players

from BCS schools and smaller programs.

It also has five players who played in the

BCS national championship game, three for Alabama and two for Notre Dame.

The Stripes are led by former Denver and

Atlanta coach Dan Reeves. Longtime NFL assistant Jim Bates is coaching the

Stars.
