Four Ignition NFL Combine Trainees were honored as they were chosen for the Under Armour Senior Bowl Game that was played on January 30th. John Conner, UK FB, Mardy Gilyard, UC WR, Devin McCourty, Rutgers DB, and Dorin Dickerson, PITT WR, had outstanding showings which in return will be measured on the final weekend in April.
The Under Armour Senior Bowl was played in Mobile, Alabama and players are selected by NFL Scouts and Coaches. These players practice the week prior leading up to Saturday's game - all in which during this short period of time have to learn an NFL offense / defense, take on intense personal interviews by all 32 NFL Teams, attend public media days and autograph sessions, and full-contact practices.
Many of the Senior Bowl contestants will be a part of the 2010 NFL Draft Class. John Conner of UK says, "it was a very memorable experience to play alongside with previous rivals or future NFL stars." Congrats to John Conner, Mardy Gilyard, Devin McCourty, and Dorin Dickerson.
