Football: Bloomsburg University duo invited to NFL Combine

By The Daily Item staff

BLOOMSBURG -- Jake Matthews, David Yankey and Cyrus Kouandjio are among the familiar offensive tackles attending the NFL Scouting Combine later this month.

Bloomsburg University's Matt Feiler will be right alongside them.

Feiler and Huskies teammate Larry Webster, a defensive end, were invited to the annual showcase of college football's top talent.

Bloomsburg was the only Division II program to have multiple athletes invited to the combine. The Huskies are two of 14 total Division II athletes.

Feiler was an Associated Press Little All-America selection and also earned an All-American nod from the Don Hansen Football Gazette. He helped pave the way for the Huskies to rush for 3,762 yards as a team this season, a total which ranked fifth in Division II, and finished his Huskies career starting every game after taking over a starting role before the 2011 season. The Strasburg native moved from guard to tackle in 2012 and earned All-PSAC East first team accolades the past two years.

Webster played just two years of football after a standout basketball career for the Huskies, finishing his time on the hardwood as the school's all-time leader in blocked shots. He racked up 12.5 sacks this season, leading the nation in sack yardage at 102 and compiled 26 sacks in maroon and gold in only 24 games. Earlier this month he earned D2Football.com All-America accolades and was a national finalist for the Cliff Harris Award as the nation's top small school defensive player among other honors. Webster was a PSAC East first team selection each of his two years on the gridiron for the Huskies.

Feiler and Webster each played in last month's East-West Shrine Game.
