SALEM, Va. – Jacob Alford will play one more game for East Texas Baptist University as a member of the D3 Senior Classic All-Star team.  He will be playing with NCAA Division III all-stars from across the nation.

“I can’t wait to play one more time,” says Alford.  “It’s so hard to say good-bye as a player to a sport you love.  Since our last game at Sul Ross State I have wanted to play again.  I am going to enjoy this last experience playing collegiate football with the best from NCAA Division III.”

The game is taking place a week before the NCAA Division III national championship at the same stadium in Salem, Va.  The all-star game features the best of NCAA Division III players and is in the fifth year as a bowl game. 

Alford was a preseason all-American by the USA Football Network and an All-ASC honorable mention selection in 2012.  He started 20 straight games for ETBU at center and has helped the offense  break numerous program records in the past two years. 

He will graduate in May with a degree in education and is from Lindale, Texas.
