Former Central Washington University defensive end Chase DeMoor has received an invite to the XFL Draft pool.

The XFL, which is a successor to the previous XFL, ran for a single season in 2001. But its making another run at it, owned by Vince McMahon’s Alpha Entertainment. On Jan. 25, 2018, it announced the return of the league. The first season will take place in Feb. of 2020.

The league consists of eight teams (Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, St. Louis, Seattle, Tampa Bay and Washington D.C).

The XFL will conduct its draft pool this October, and each team will draft 70 players.

“Extending invitations to our draft process marks the next step on an extraordinary football journey,” said XFL commissioner and CEO Oliver Luck in a statement. “Many of the outstanding athletes who receive a Commissioner’s Invitation will be among the first to take the field in our new league, proudly representing their fans and their communities. I am delighted to offer them this exciting opportunity.”

DeMoor played two seasons for the Wildcats, transferring from College of Siskiyous.

In 2018, his six blocked kicks led all NCAA classifications with the next closest at the Division II level being Maliq Carr of University of Findlay with four.

After his collegiate career, DeMoor played in the FCS National Bowl game and the FBS All American game.
