BEAUMONT - Lamar University linebacker, and former West Brook High School star, Marcus Malbrough has accepted an invitation to play in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, announced the NFL Players Association.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Malbrough just completed his second season with the Cardinals following his transfer from Missouri. Malbrough was named honorable mention All-Southland Conference following the 2012 season after registering 25 tackles, including seven for loss, and a team-high seven quarterback hurries.
Malbrough was also an honorable mention all-conference performer as a junior when he tied for the team lead with four and a half sacks. Malbrough had 33 tackles, including six for loss, during his junior campaign, as well.
Malbrough joins a growing list of impressive draft-eligible seniors competing in the all-star game on January 19 at The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, Calif.
For one week preceding the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, participants will receive an in-depth introduction to the union - the primary resource for information on the business of football and how to succeed in the NFL and in post-football careers.
Pro-football players and coaching legends will work with the game's future stars, giving them first-hand insight on what it takes to win on and off of the field. Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will serve as the head coaches for the American and National Teams. Player Ambassadors for the game include former NFL players Terrell Davis, Hank Baskett, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Lorenzo Neal and Andre Reed.
