Cornerback Demetrius McCray turned in a stellar performance on Saturday at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, CA. McCray, who has earned an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, IN., February 20-26, raised his stock big time with the NFL scouts Saturday night.
McCray intercepted a pass and returned it 38 yards, he broke up a pass, he forced a fumble, and he made five solo tackles as his team, the National squad, posted a 34-0 victory against the American squad.
McCray, who stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 185 pounds, tied for the Southern Conference lead with four interceptions in 2012, becoming the first Mountaineer cornerback to ever lead the league in interceptions twice (he also paced the SoCon with five INTs in 2011). He finished his career with 10 interceptions, good for a tie for 10th among active NCAA Division I FCS players in 2012.
Additionally, the senior led Appalachian State with eight passes defended, ranked sixth on the team with 55 tackles from his cornerback position and forced a fumble. He was a consensus first-team all-conference selection, earned second-team All-America recognition from the Associated Press and was one of 20 finalists for the Buck Buchanan Award, which is presented to the nation’s top FCS defensive player.
Linbacker Jeremy Kimbrough of ASU was selected to play in the Raycom All-Star Classic on Saturday in Montgomery, AL. But Kimbrough missed the game after straining his quad. Fullback Eric Breitenstein of Wofford College played in the Raycom Classic. He did not have any carries, but he did catch two passes. Kimbrough was scheduled to play for the Stars; Breitenstein played for the Stripes. The Stripes beat the Stars, 31-3.
