The Yale football season ended a month-and-a-half ago at Harvard Stadium, but cornerback Josh Phillips ’01 still has one game left.
The senior, a four-year letter winner at defensive back and running back, will compete in the Florida All-Star Gridiron Classic Saturday. The game is played in the Citrus Bowl, using professional rules.
Phillips, an Orlando native, will play safety and special teams for former Arizona Cardinals and Philadelphia Eagles head coach Buddy Ryan. Phillips, who recorded 50 tackles for the Elis this season, was the only Ivy League player chosen out of a handful of Division I-AA selections.
Phillips said game officials are expecting about 150 professional scouts at the contest.
