NFLPA Collegiate Bowl Central
LAS CRUCES, NM – Sage Doxtater will be donning an NM State football helmet for one final game.
On Saturday, January 29, 2022, Doxtater will take the field at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California to compete in the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA) 2022 Collegiate Bowl.
The NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, dubbed the post-season premier all-star game for draft college football players, is in its 10th year. The game was first played in 2012 to prepare eligible college football players for careers in the NFL.
Doxtater was a choice for Phil Steele’s All-Independent First Team in 2021 and has been an integral part of the Aggies offensive in the history of the program for half a decade. Since the beginning of the 2016 season, Doxtater has helped anchor the Aggies’ offensive line and made 48 starting grid appearances.
One of the Canadian Football League’s top board candidates, Doxtater was drafted from London, Ontario, Canada by the Toronto Argonauts with the 12th pick in the second round of the 2021 CFL Draft in May 2021, his option for the 2021 season in return to NM State.
Doxtater becomes the first NM State player to compete in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl since Ray Buford Jr., and Jason Huntley did so in 2019. Huntley excelled on the offensive side of the ball in that game, storming to a height of 53 Yards plus a touchdown to help the national team score a 30:20 triumph over the American side. Buford Jr., patrolled the defensive backcourt for the American team and generated a tackle.
