The most important thing for a coach to know about the Super Bowl is how to handle the hoopla."

Senior Bowl Week Begins With Weigh-in and Practices


Senior Bowl Week Begins With Weigh-in and Practices
Updated 1/23

The premier All-star game, the Senior Bowl begins today with updated rosters for their 2018 games and the official Weigh-in and practices. This All-star game has been cornerstone during the postseason where hundreds of scouts evaluate the nation’s top pro prospects for the NFL Draft. Th Senior bowl roster annually dominates the NFL Draft seven rounds and has a long legacy of alumni with many of them having gone to the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Houston Texans and Denver Broncos have been selected to coach the 2018 Reese’s Senior Bowl, set for January 27 in Mobile, Ala.

"We are thrilled to have the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos as the two coaching staffs for our game," said Reese’s Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savage.

The Texans, led by their fourth-year head coach Bill O'Brien, will guide the South team, while Vance Joseph, in his first year as head coach of the Broncos, will guide the North.

"Both organizations are well respected across the National Football League and it is our honor to welcome them to Mobile," Savage said.

Houston has coached in the Senior Bowl one previous time, in 2003 under Dom Capers.

It finished the 2017 season with a record of 4-12 and would have picked fourth in this year's draft, however, that pick was traded to the Browns.

Denver was 5-11 this season and will pick fifth in the draft. The Broncos have coached in the Reese’s Senior Bowl six times, going 2-2-2 in those games.

“We jumped at the opportunity for the Broncos to work the Senior Bowl,” Broncos’ President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said. “On both the coaching and personnel sides, the experience gives us a chance to meet these prospects and get to know them on and off the field. The Senior Bowl has a great tradition and we are excited to be a part of it.”

“The Senior Bowl provides our staff an up-close look at some of the top prospects in this year’s draft,” said Joseph, who in 13 years of coaching in the NFL has coached in the Senior Bowl three times, all as an assistant with the 49ers (2006-2008). “Having coached the Senior Bowl in the past, it’s a tremendous evaluation tool spending all week with these players in a variety of group and individual settings.

Joseph, 45, jumped into coaching after a brief NFL career, serving as an assistant at the University of Colorado, Wyoming and Bowling Green before moving up the NFL where he was a defensive backs coach for the 49ers, Texans and Bengals over a 10-year stretch. After one year as a defensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins, he earned his first head coaching job with the Broncos.

Senior Bowl Director Phil Savage and staff have assembled another talented group of pro prospects. Currently, the Senior Bowl staff has over 100 acceptances from the nation’s top prospects for their January week long event.

Wideout Daurice Fountain Named Shrine Game Offensive MVP


WR Daurice Fountain Named Shrine Game Offensive MVP

University of Northern Iowa wide receiver Daurice Fountain was named the 93rd annual East-West Shrine Game Offensive MVP after his impressive performance against some of the nation’s best competition on Saturday.

The honor marks the first time that a player from UNI has earned the MVP distinction for the game. Fountain joins the likes of Jimmy Garoppolo (2014), Steve Smith (2001), Jeff Garcia (1994) and Brett Favre (1991) who have won the Shrine Game’s coveted Offensive MVP award.

“It was truly a blessing,” Fountain said about his MVP honor. “You could’ve never told me at the beginning of the week that I was going to have this kind of production. I’m thankful for the opportunity and happy that I met so many great people this week. This whole experience was just surreal.”

Daurice Fountain was Frank Coyle’s #1 Sleeper at the East-West Game – posted on this site Thursday

The former Panther wideout caught three passes for 61 yards, while also racking up 40 yards on punt returns for the afternoon. Fountain ripped off two huge plays on Saturday, the first being a 38-yard catch and run that set up the East squad with a field goal, while the second big play came on a 30-yard punt return in the third quarter to set up his team with another scoring opportunity.

The West won Saturday’s game by a narrow margin of 14-10. The West’s Natrell Jamerson of Wisconsin won Defensive MVP honors after retuning a fumble 68 yards for Saturday’s first touchdown of the game.
Fountain finished his Panther career as just the sixth player to rank in the Top 10 for catches (150), yards (2,077) and touchdowns (23) at UNI. In 2017, Fountain hauled in 66 catches, racking up 943 yards and 12 touchdowns.

East-West Practices - WR Daurice Fountain of Northern Iowa Heads Sleeper List


Daurice Fountain Receiver of Northern Iowa Heads Gems at East-West Shrine Week Practices

Daurice Fountain #10 – 6015, 210 lbs. - Northern Iowa
Athletic senior has been one of the hidden gems from the small college level over his three starting seasons. He has had an excellent week of practice at the East-West Shrine practices that is vital for a small college performer to impress NFL scouts. Fountain hit the ground running this week and showed a business like approach to the oldest All-star game on the NFL agenda. He displayed good athleticism and the refined receiving skills to come off the line quickly and eat up NFL caliber cover men. He showed good footwork and the ability to separate at the breakpoint to get open consistently and provide his passer and sound target. His ability to go up and adjust to the throws drew attention from NFL scouts early in the week and he was one of the hot prospects through the week.

Photo - WR Daurice Fountain - Northern Iowa

As a senior, he had 66 receptions for 943 yards and 12 TDs despite double coverage. That earned him an invitation to the East-West Shrine game. He comes in just under 6’2” and a solid 210 lbs. He entered 2017 with 82 catches for over 1100 yards and 11 TDs on 24 starts. He played in all 14 games as a true freshman and has made nice progress annually.
Strong frame with good movement skills to come off the line quickly. He benefits from a high profile sprinter running in the huddles in national meets. He adjusts nicely to the ball with the ability to snatch it easily and secure it consistently. He is one of our Players to Watch at the East-West Shrine game Saturday, Jan 20th. We will have a special list of Pro Prospects to Watch for the Shrine game to full subscribers prior to this Saturday’s contest.
