The NFL Players Association is pleased to announce FOX Sports and WHOOP as two of its official partners for the 2019 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.
Building off the successful broadcasts of the past two years, FS1 will once again air the star-studded NFLPA Collegiate Bowl to its growing audience of viewers. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m. PST/5 p.m. EST on January 19, 2019 at the historic Rose Bowl Stadium in California.
This year’s broadcast team features a number of notable voices and faces. Dan Hellie will serve as the play-by-play announcer and joining him in the booth will be analysts Joel Klatt and Charles Davis. On the sidelines, Petros Papadakis and Bucky Brooks will deliver news and insight from the American and National teams.
“FOX Sports is synonymous with football, which is why we are excited to continue this partnership,” said Teri Smith, NFLPA Collegiate Bowl director and deputy managing director of the NFLPA. “By playing on one of television’s biggest stages, we are once again able to provide NFL prospects with the best support.”
As part of a week-long experience that introduces the top draft-eligible college players to their future union and the business of football, each participant will receive a WHOOP strap. The wearable device collects 100 data points per second and then utilizes that data to further understand how the workouts, diet, sleep routine and lifestyle they are living truly affects their bodies.
WHOOP, which also provides active NFL players with wearable devices at no cost, is committed to helping the next generation of pro football athletes optimize their performance and overall well-being.
