LAS CRUCES, N.M. - Senior defensive back Davon House has been invited to participate in the 2011 Senior Bowl, in Mobile, Ala. The event is scheduled for Jan., 29, 2011 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium and will be televised on the NFL-Network.
"This is a great honor to be invited to the Senior Bowl," House said. "Since I arrived at NM State this has been one of my goals. It kind of seems surreal right now because I've seen some great football players play in this game. I'm just happy for the opportunity."
House becomes the fifth player in school history to be named to the Senior Bowl. Other Aggies to have played in the Senior Bowl are Jim Bohl ('67), Jim Germany ('75), Walt Williams ('77) and Andre Anderson ('78).
House was a preseason Jim Thorpe Award candidate after a superb junior campaign. In 2010, House has tallied 36 tackles, an interception, a forced fumble and a team-leading six pass break-ups. He ranks third in the WAC and 34th in the country in passes defended.
The Senior Bowl is the nation's most unique football game and football's premier pre-draft event, annually featuring the country's best senior collegiate football stars and top NFL draft prospects on teams representing the North and South, which are coached by the entire coaching staffs from two NFL teams.
