San Antonio, TX – The NFLPA All-Star game came down to the last drive in which the Nation team had a shot to defeat Team Texas, but University of Texas defensive end Eddie Jones stopped running back Damien Berry of the University of Miami on 4th down at the 1-yard line with 55 seconds left in the game helping Team Texas win 13-7. Berry who was named the offensive player of the game and had the only score for the Nation team on a 72 yard run in the 1st quarter had a shot to get his second score but Jones wouldn’t have any of it.
“Their offense was easy to read, and I could tell when they were running or passing,” Jones said. “Before third down they hadn’t run to my side, and I told my teammates that if they do I would make a big play. It happened to be on fourth down.”
Team Texas started out the game hot in which the game MVP, quarterback Taylor Potts of Texas Tech hit Tennessee’s wide receiver Denarius Moore with a 28-yard touchdown pass in the 1st quarter. Potts was 9-of-15 for 107 yards passing and one touchdown. But after the two, 1st touchdowns by both teams, the defensive on both teams took over the game.
Defensive end Roberto Davis of Northwest Missouri State who was named defensive player of the game made a huge play for Team Texas as he had a sack quarterback TJ Yates of North Carolina, forced Yates to fumble the ball and Davis also recovered the fumble.
With the win Team Texas was able to win back-to-back game and leads the all time series 3-to-2.
