Mobile, AL. (Jan. 20)---A pair of dual-threat quarterbacks will share snaps with Florida's Tim Tebow on the South squad in next week's Under Armour Senior Bowl. West Virginia's Jarrett Brown and Oklahoma State's Zac Robinson have both accepted invitations to the 2010 game, officials announced today. Tebow was announced to the South roster earlier this month. The game is scheduled for 3pm (CT) on January 30th in Mobile's Ladd-Peebles Stadium and will be televised by the NFL Network. All tickets for the 61st game have been sold.
Brown made the most of his lone year as the Mountaineers' starter in 2009, throwing for 2,144 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was a second team All-BIG EAST selection after ranking third in the conference this season in total offense (200.77 ypg). The West Palm Beach, Florida native was 11 and 4 as a starter and is also a threat running the ball—totaling 1,138 yards and 13 touchdowns in his career.
Robinson was a finalist for the Manning Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award this season in addition to being named honorable mention All-Big 12. He leaves Oklahoma State with numerous records under his belt, including total offense (10,175), passing yards (8,317), touchdown passes (66) and completion percentage (61.2).
In 2009, Robinson threw a touchdown pass in all but two games and led the Cowboys to a Cotton Bowl appearance. He passed for 2,084 yards and 15 touchdowns and rushed for an additional 305 yards and four scores on the year.
"All three of our South team quarterbacks are equally effective running the ball as they are throwing it," Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale said. "We are looking forward to watching Jarrett, Zac and Tim compete here next week at the Senior Bowl."
