The Heisman Trophy may be the most prestigious award a college football player can receive, but perhaps the most coveted is being selected as the cover athlete of NCAA Football 08 by EA SPORTS.
Boise State quarterback, Jared Zabransky was selected as the NCAA Football 08 cover athlete. He joins former stars like Reggie Bush, Shaun Alexander and Desmond Howard. Last year NCAA Football 07 was the #2 selling game in North America behind Madden NFL 07.
Jared Zabransky led Boise State to back-to-back undefeated regular seasons and was named the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl MVP as he led his team to an exhilarating overtime win against the Oklahoma Sooners. He will most likely be remembered for perfectly executing the Statue of Liberty play to lead Boise State to the win.

PAWTUCKET, RI – April 30, 2007 – Hasbro Inc. (NYSE:HAS) today announced it has teamed with Super Bowl XLI MVP Peyton Manning in a wide-ranging product and promotional alliance centering on the company’s popular NERF brand. The NERF brand has enjoyed strong growth over the past several years, with 2006 sales in excess of $100 million.
The multi-year alliance calls for Peyton Manning, quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts, to appear in NERF advertising as well as several in person promotional appearances that kicked off with today’s visit to Hasbro headquarters in Rhode Island, where Manning unveiled the NERF PEYTON MANNING MVP PRO GRIP FOOTBALL.
“I’ve been participating in fast-paced competitive activities since I was a kid – activities that brought me to where I am today as an NFL quarterback and Super Bowl champion. One of the things I really enjoyed as a kid was playing with NERF footballs with my brothers,” said Manning. “NERF delivers the kind of competitive fun that kids - and big kids like me - look for in a quick pick-up game of football.”
“We could not have asked for a better partner for our NERF brand,” said Sharon John, General Manager, toy marketing, Hasbro.. “A great athlete and good sport, Peyton’s attitude and commitment to excellence make him a positive role model for sports fans of all ages. We are thrilled to have Peyton’s name and likeness featured on our signature NERF product line.”
The NERF PEYTON MANNING MVP PRO GRIP FOOTBALL is the first signature Manning item in the NERF product lineup. With an easy-grip texture, this “performance football” allows sports fans to get a handle on their game. The high visibility spiral helps to make the football easy to spot for accurate catching. The NERF PEYTON MANNING MVP PRO GRIP FOOTBALL is emblazoned with Manning’s signature and likeness and is packaged with a signature sports bottle.
As part of the alliance between Peyton Manning and the NERF brand, Hasbro will make a financial donation to the Peyback Foundation, which will also be promoted on packaging for the NERF Peyton Manning MVP Pro Grip Football. The Peyback Foundation was established by Peyton Manning to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. The Foundation has donated more than $1.3 million to youth organizations in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana since 1999.

I challenged Arizona Cardinals quarterback Matt Leinart to a skills competition. I wanted to see how accurate he was throwing some Hanes ComfortSoft boxers. Despite the official ruling on the field, I still think I won.

Oct. 20, 2008 - Arbitro de futbol americano le da un golpe a un jugador.
Fue durante el partido de futbol americano de la NCAA que enfrento a las universidades de Lousiana State y South Carolina. Stephen Garcia, 'quarterback' de South Carolina, avanzaba a toda maquina con el balon cuando de manera sorpresiva fue frenado de forma violenta por el arbitro del partido.
La version oficial sostiene que el arbitro del partido, Wilbur Hackett Jr, realizo esa incomprensible accion para protegerse del golpe. Hay que ver el video para creerlo.

I had to take some time to check emails and write this blog after attending the NFL Play 60 Program in Central Park, which was a great time. I was able to get a number of interviews with several of the college football players bound for the NFL who've been invited to New York for the Draft: Georgia Quarterback Matt Stafford, Kansas State Quarterback Josh Freeman, Texas Tech Wide Receiver Michael Crabtree, Ole Miss Offensive Tackle Michael Oher (who came from homelessness to the NFL) and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. You will see each of them in video uploads today and Saturday. Distributed by Tubemogul.

As the Bears would return to the World Football Crown in 1937, the burgeoning Redskins withstood the challenge with a newly signed rookie from Texas Christian University, a quarterback by the name of Sammy Baugh.
"Slingin' Sammy" Baugh, as he would come to be known, was particularly notable for his forward pass, a somewhat unusual play in the 1930's. Baugh was also unique in the variety of positions he played, including punter, cornerback and quarterback.
With Baugh their secret weapon, the Redskins would defeat the Bears 28-21, banishing Chicago from respectable competitiveness until the 1940's.
