HBCU Heroes: Week 2 standouts who caught the eye of the HBCU Spirit of America Bowl

Rico Kennedy is one of my favorite prospects in the MEAC, and the kid has the knack for getting after the QB.

The 4th Annual HBCU Spirit of America Bowl will be played on January 19, 2019 in Salem, Virginia at Salem Stadium.  The Spirit of America Bowl is the ONLY HBCU college football All-Star Game in the country and this year, NFL Draft Diamonds teamed up with Cutting Edge Management to help find the best players in the nation for the Senior All-Star Game.  Week 2 is over, and our owner Damond Talbot wanted to showcase a few players that really stood out this past week.

Kyle Anthony, WR, Howard – The Miramar, Florida native went off this week for the Bison. Even though Howard came up short to Youngstown State, Anthony had a monster game, finishing with 10 receptions for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns. Anthony has turned into a superstar wide receiver and I know for fact NFL teams are paying attention.

Derrick Kittrell, RB, Bowie State University – This week Bowie State running back Derrick Kittrell the former Towson back ran for 93 yards and scored two touchdowns. The Baltimore, Maryland native is a big back standing at 6000 and weighs 210 pounds. He can also catch the ball out the backfield and turn up field.

Dejerric Bryant, QB, Mississippi Valley State – The senior quarterback from Mize, Mississippi had himself a game against Lamar and Delta Devils almost beat Lamar. The 5090 quarterback, finished the game with 127 yards on 24 carries and had 2 rushing touchdowns. He also added 91 yards passing for the MVSU offense. He maybe a little on the short side, but the kid showed a ton of heart against Lamar.

Keshawn Williams, RB, Arkansas Pine-Bluff – The Senior running back from Pine Bluff, Arkansas had a day in the SWAC opener for the Golden Lions. Williams tore up Alabama A&M defense for 206 yards on the ground on 21 carries. The 5100, 195-pound running back ran hard this past weekend and helped UAPB get their first win over AAMU 52-34.

Rico Kennedy, LB, Morgan State University – The Morgan State linebacker had a great game against Bowling Green racking up 14 tackles and 1 tackle for loss. I am a huge fan of Kennedy and I feel he will have NFL teams looking at him. The 6030 and 235 pound pass rusher was all around the ball.
