USA Football release

BOISE, Idaho - Former Boise State cornerback Bryan Douglas was named to the 45-man USA Football National Team that will compete at the 2015 International Federation of American Football (IFAF) World Championship from July 9-18 in Canton, Ohio.

This will be the fifth edition of the IFAF World Championship. The United States enters the 2015 event as the two-time defending champion, having captured its most recent crown with a 50-7 victory over Canada in the 2011 final. The U.S. has competed only at the 2007 and 2011 events, while Japan captured the first two championships in 1999 and 2003.

Douglas concluded his Boise State career in 2014, appearing in nine games, starting one, and making eight tackles (four solo). He also contributed on special teams, returning 13 kickoffs for an average of 20.6 yards per return.

Over his four-year career Douglas intercepted four passes and made 72 tackles over 37 games. He averaged 25.5 yards over 28 kickoff returns, highlighted by a 100-yard return for a touchdown against San Diego State on Nov. 23, 2013, one of just four 100-yard kickoff returns in school history. The 2013 would be the best of his time with the Broncos, as Douglas intercepted four passes, broke up nine passes, made 35 tackles and averaged 30.4 yards over 13 kickoff returns.

Douglas isn't the only member of the national team with Boise State ties, as the team is guided by former Bronco head coach Dan Hawkins. During his five seasons at the Bronco helm, Hawkins went 53-11, winning four WAC titles and a pair of bowl titles (2002 Crucial.com Humanitarian Bowl, 2003 PlainsCapital Fort Worth Bowl) in addition to leading the Broncos to final top-25 national rankings in 2002 (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today/No. 15 AP), 2003 (No. 15 ESPN/USA Today/No. 16 AP) and 2004 (No. 12 AP/No. 13 ESPN/USA Today).

All games will be played at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium and available via live stream on ESPN3. Game dates are July 9, 12 and 15 with consolation games and the medal round on Saturday, July 18. Kickoff times (all ET) are set for noon, 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
