USA Football Bowl Rosters
Linfield senior All-America linebacker Dominique Forrest is competing in the USA Football Bowl this week in Hoover, Ala.
Forrest is among 98 graduating senior All-Americans who have gathered in Alabama this week to participate in the USA Football Bowl, which combines standouts from not only NCAA Division III, but also Division II and Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA).
“It's awesome to be representing Linfield College in this game,” said Forrest. “I'm looking forward to showcasing the skills I've developed at Linfield in a new setting. It's an honor to continue playing.”
Monday's USA Football Bowl all-star game kicks off at 11 a.m. Pacific time at Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. A formal scouting combine follows on Tuesday. Players are measured, tested and timed in the areas of speed, agility and quickness with professional scouts looking on.
A 2010 graduate of Portland's Jesuit High School, Forrest is among the most decorated football players in Linfield history. His senior season included first team All-America citations by the American Football Coaches Assocation and D3football.com, and a second team designation on the Associated Press Little All-America team.
He was a three-time first team all-Northwest Conference linebacker and was twice selected as NWC Defensive Player of the Year and West Region Defensive Player of the Year.
