The nationally-televised contest (FloSports) is set for 1:30 p.m. at Municipal Stadium.

The fifth annual contest features top Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and Historically Black College and University (HBCU) players. A total of 20 professional football teams, 13 from the NFL and seven Canadian League clubs, are expected to send representatives to the game.

The Delaware State trio will compete for the National Team (Blue) against the American Team (White) in Sunday’s FCS Bowl.

This past season, Alleyne earned All-MEAC Third Team honors after finishing fifth in the league in rushing at 64.6 yards per game (646 total). He also ranked third in the conference in kickoff returns (28.1 ypr) and fourth in all-purpose yards (112.0 ypg) in 2018.

One of the most versatile players in team history. Alleyne wrapped up his Hornet career as No. 3 in team history with 4,093 all-purpose yards. The total includes 1,836 kickoff return yards, second-best in the DSU record book. His 1,712 career rushing yards rank 11th all-time at the school. Alleyne’s 15 career touchdowns include 11 rushing, two receiving and two on kickoff returns.

Keyjuan Selby earned All-MEAC Second Team (2017) and Third Team (2018) honors during his Delaware State career. He ranked among the league leaders in passes defended (interceptions + pass break ups) in each of the last two seasons. His career numbers include 165 total tackles, 29 pass break ups and three interceptions.
