Davis, Jones to play in Texas vs. the Nation game
Help support senior defensive end Roberto Davis and cornerback Ryan Jones as they play in the NFL Players Association Game: Texas vs. the Nation on Saturday Feb. 5. Bearcat fans can show their support even if they cannot travel to the Alamodome in San Antonio for the game.
Bearcat fans can purchase a ticket, and that ticket will be donated to military personnel or children's organizations to attend the game in their place. Those attending will be sitting in designated sections to support the Northwest players.
The game features senior collegiate athletes from Texas and around the nation showcasing their talent. The game attracts hundreds of NFL scouts and personnel, and is a great spotlight for Davis and Jones to be evaluated for a potential invitation to the NFL.
San Antonio will be hosting the event for the first time in the game's five-year history. Prior to Saturday's game, the series is tied between Texas and the nation at 2-2. Davis and Jones will be playing for team Texas.
Jones was named to the AP All-American team, All-Region team, and was the MIAA Most Valuable Defensive Player. Davis, a Texas native, was named to the All-Region and All-MIAA teams. Last season Davis led the Bearcats with seven sacks and 10.5 tackles-for-loss.
To donate a ticket you must input "Northwest Missouri State" under the "Business or Organization" section.
