Cutting Edge Sports Management, hosts of Dream Bowl V, the nationally-recognized small college football all-star game, will be honoring armed forces athletes at this year’s Dream Bowl Weekend. CEO/Founder of CESM and the Dream Bowl, Neil Malvone, announced today that the Dream Bowl will select one Dream Bowl Armed Forces All-Star from each of the three D-I football playing academies, Army, Navy, and Air Force. Those players will be celebrated throughout Dream Bowl Weekend and will participate in this year’s fifth annual Dream Bowl on January 16, 2017 at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex in Virginia Beach, VA.

CESM will be providing travel arrangements and full accommodations for the armed forces All-Stars including a waiver of the registration fee for the weekend’s festivities. Malvone stated, “We wanted to create a way to honor the student-athletes playing at our military academies and show our appreciation for their sacrifices for our country. We appreciate their dedication and wanted to pay tribute to them and all of our armed forces.”

Dream Bowl V is part of Dream Bowl Weekend which will take place during Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend in the Hampton Roads/Norfolk region which is home to many veterans living on and off the bases in the area.
Dream Bowl Weekend will also include the inaugural HBCU Spirit of America Bowl, an all-star game celebrating the student-athletes at our nation’s celebrated HBCU schools. Both games will feature the best football players from around the country to showcase their talents in front of NFL and CFL scouts. Dream Bowl Weekend will also include a Career Fair for the student-athletes and veterans.

The Dream Bowl and the HBCU games will be televised again on The American Sports Network with its broadcast reach along the Sinclair media network of over 70 million households. The audio feed will air nationally through Tune-in media.

EVP of CESM, John Zisa noted, “We want our weekend to reflect the true Spirit of America, by helping our veterans and student-athletes receive the opportunities they have worked so hard to attain.”

CESM and its scouting partner, Optimum Scouting, will be leading the selection process. Recommendations are welcome and can be submitted through social media @TheDreamBowl, @OptimumScouting and through the Dream Bowl official website,
