MSU’s Cunha, Gunderson to play in FCS Bowl

Seniors Zac Cunha and Logan Gunderson will represent Minot State at the 2017 FCS Bowl to be played in Daytona Beach, Fla.

The FCS Bowl is an annual post-season college football all-star game consisting of top players from FCS and HBCU schools. The game is played annually at Daytona Beach Stadium in Daytona Beach, Fla. The FCS Bowl showcases All-American and all-conference seniors from around the nation. The FCS Bowl is the only current postseason all-star game scouted by the NFL, and players get the opportunity to play in front of many NFL and CFL scouts.

Cunha and Gunderson will both play for the National Team which will be coached by former Green Bay Packer special teams coach Mike Stock. Chris Thompson, who is the director of operations for Albany of the Arena Football League, will coach the American team.

Cunha finished the 2017 season with 1,665 yards passing and nine touchdown passes. He leaves the program as the school record holder for pass attempts, pass completions and passing yards and is second all-time in career touchdown passes.

Gunderson was a four-year starter on the offensive line for the Beavers and started all 11 games during the 2017 season.

The game will be held on Dec. 10 at 1:30 p.m. in Daytona Municipal Stadium. The game will be broadcast live on
