Fort Worth – University of Buffalo Offensive Tackle, Kayode Awosika has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2021 College Gridiron Showcase & Symposium (CGS) being held January 17-21 in Fort Worth, Texas.
With its unique showcase format, no other premiere college football all-star event gives participants as many quality opportunities to display their talent. Adapting to the times, the 2021 Showcase will see players perform individual and non-timed, non-contact combine style drills, attend meetings, and, in many cases have the opportunity for personal interviews with scouts and executives. CGS is one of the few high-profile post-season events at which draft-eligible seniors can showcase their skills and interface with scouts and executives prior to 2021 league drafts.
Awosika, a Plymouth, Minnesota native (Maple Grove) earned All-MAC honors twice in his college career and has been named to be on the 2020 Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List. Awosika played an essential role in an offensive line that ranked in the top 15 in the nation and only allowed eight sacks all last season.
Since its inaugural event in 2015, more than 500 CGS participants have been offered pro opportunities. At the 2020 College Gridiron Showcase, scouts from 31 of the 32 NFL teams, all nine CFL teams, and other professional leagues were on hand to evaluate and meet with our players. In total, participants had the opportunity to showcase their skills to 150 professional scouts.
In addition to its on-field aspects, CGS also contains a strong professional football education symposium component. Athletes are provided education through seminars relating to Financial Education, Life as a Professional Athlete, Player Expectations (on and off-field), first-hand accounts from former NFL rookies, social media responsibilities, and more.
