New NFLPA Collegiate Bowl director of college recruiting Doug Whaley has finalized his team of scouts, just in time for the start of another exciting college football season.
The 2018-19 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl recruiting staff features:
Pete Russell, who is in fourth season with the NFLPA recruiting department and will be responsible for the West and Southwest regions. Russell spent 16 years working in the NFL as an area scout for the L.A./St. Louis Rams, Houston Texans and Carolina Panthers.
Jim Monos joins the Collegiate Bowl team as its Mid-Atlantic and Southeast region recruiter after serving as the director of player personnel for the Buffalo Bills from 2013-2017. Monos spent 16 years in the NFL, where he also served as a scout for the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles.
B.J. McNorton is entering his fourth year as a football scout and will be responsible for the Midwest region. He previously spent two years with the Pittsburgh Steelers and one season with the Minnesota Vikings.
“The Collegiate Bowl has a history of securing commitments from some of the country’s best draft-eligible players,” Whaley said. “With the vast experience and strong background of our scouting team, I’m confident that we will continue that tradition. I can’t wait to hit the recruiting trail with these guys.”
Including Whaley, the recruiting staff boasts more than 60 years of scouting experience at the NFL and collegiate levels. Their relentless work has helped teams like the Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles make Super Bowl runs.
Each Collegiate Bowl scout is responsible for a region, where they will travel to frequently evaluate players and build relationships while studying game film through a professional provider.
