GREENSBORO, December 15, 2011 - Four Aggie senior football players are ready to compete at this Sunday's HBCU All Star Bowl at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Ga.
Wide receiver Wallace Miles, defensive back Justin Ferrell and offensive linemen Brent Walker and Alex Harper will get an opportunity to play in front of NFL scouts. The game starts at 2:30 p.m., on Dec. 18. Fans have two options to listen to the game.
Miles (6-1, 193, Atlanta, Ga.) comes into the game after putting together one of the best seasons of any receiver in school history. He is the only Aggie to lead the team in receiving all four years, and in 2011, he became the school's first single-season 1,000-yard receiver. The second-team All-MEAC performer led the MEAC in receptions and receiving yards. Miles also broke the Aggies' single-season record for receptions with 70.
Ferrell (5-9, 185, Danville, Va.) was a three-time first-team All-MEAC selection at three different positions. This past season, he earned first-team honors as a cornerback. During his career, Ferrell also had first-team selections as a free safety and a kickoff returner.
Walker (6-2, 290, Durham, N.C.) was a four-year starter at center for the Aggies. Despite having to learn three different offenses in four years, Walker was always characterized as the leader of the Aggies offensive line because of the difficult calls he often made at the line of scrimmage. He started 43 of the 44 games he played in as an Aggie. He was named MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Sept. 26, 2011.
Harper (SR, 6-5, 330, Baltimore, Md.) was a four-year starter for the Aggies, and played every position along the offensive line except center. Harper played right guard this season and led the team in knockdown blocks. He graded out high during film study toward the end of the season.
