    It is always good when you are named MVP in an All-Star game.

    10 carries 78 yds 1TD

    Really great to see. Way to rep the Rock and the PSAC, sir. Got to note that Gannon's Marcus Jones played in the game, too.

    Jones played fullback.

    Whatever happened to the college all-star games like East-West Shrine Game, the Hula Bowl, and the Japan Bowl? Are they still around?

    The Senior Bowl is certainly the biggest showcase these days. I always watch that one and the week of practice leading up to it. Many top round players will be there. You can learn a lot if you are a draftnik.

    East/West Shrine game was yesterday as well; no longer played in Palo Alto; played in St. Petersburg, Fl. ROCK's Marcus Martin played in it last year

    Hula Bowl has not existed for years and Japan Bowl isn't played anymore either

    Anybody remember the Blue-Grey Football Classic? My dad and I used to watch that on Christmas Day. Now that basketball has taken over Christmas Day, our television stays off.

    Injury derails Hills in Senior Bowl

    2 carries 22 yards

    Slippery Rock running back Wes Hills parlayed his awesome NFLPA Collegiate Bowl performance (78 yards rushing, TD, MVP honors) into a call-up to the Senior Bowl but left in the first quarter after he suffered a lower body injury. He still helped himself throughout the week of practices but could have had a big in-game moment to remind scouts he's a legitimate prospect. (Excerpt form Bleacher Report article)

    Hope the injury wasn't too bad & good luck to him for getting a good fair evaluation.

    Any word of Hills getting a combine invite? Sounds like he is worthy of one.

    Did he leave the field under his own power? What's the early prognosis?

    Not too many D2 guys get invited to combine. With his injury he would probably have to decline. ROCK's PRO day will probably in late March.

    My guess is the it is a high ankle sprain,they showed the replay and it was cringe-worthy.
