NFL Draft Party
Throughout the first 43 years in Independence Bowl history, 71 I-Bowl stars have been drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft. The Independence Bowl NFL Draft Party was an event in its first year in 2019, as fans gathered at Walk-On’s in Shreveport to hear some former Independence Bowl stars hear their names called in the first round.
The Independence Bowl’s Kickoff event returned for the 10th consecutive year, as the Kickoff Dinner was held on Thursday, July 11th at 6 p.m. Former North Webster and LSU star linebacker, and 5th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Devin White, was the featured speaker. The program featured a Q&A between White and “Voice of the Tigers” Chris Blair, including an audience Q&A session.
