Hammonton High School graduate Tom Pangia and Atlantic City High School graduate Patrick Ruley will play Sunday in the third annual National Bowl Game, an all-star college football game featuring 80 seniors from all three NCAA divisions.
The game will be at 1 p.m. at J. Birney Stadium in Allentown, Pa. Pangia will play for Red Nation and Ruley for Blue Nation.
Pangia made 64 tackles this season for Division III Gallaudet University, which plays in the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference. He was the first player ever to make the All-ECFC first team all four years of his college career. Pangia was one of just three ECFC players selected for Sunday’s game.
Ruley made 77 tackles for Rowan University, another Division III school. The Profs play in the New Jersey Athletic Conference, which placed two other players in the National Bowl Game. Ruley was named second-team all-NJAC.
