ERIK AINGE NAMED SENIOR BOWL OFFENSIVE MVP FOR THE SOUTH

New, 9 comments

Erik Ainge was named Offensive MVP for the South in yesterday's Senior Bowl for leading his team on a game-winning drive in the final minutes.

With 2:48 left to play and the South down by six, the drive started at their own 14. Ainge completed six passes, including an 18-yarder to Florida's Andre Caldwell on fourth and ten, a 22-yarder to Houston's Donnie Avery, and a 23-yarder to Louisville's Harry Douglas. The winning play came on fourth down with four seconds left when Ainge handed off to Caldwell on an end-around and Caldwell scored.

NFL.com has the video. Chest bump to Fulmer's Belly for finding the clip first.

Oh, and Brad Cottam scored the only other touchdown for the South.

Ainge and Michigan's Chad Henne were the only QBs to avoid costly mistakes, although Henne was saved from the consequences of a poorly thrown ball by one of his receivers. Andre Woodson? Lost a fumble and gave up a safety on two different plays. He did throw the TD to Cottam, though. John David Booty threw an interception in the end zone. Colt Brennan also threw an interception, as did Delaware's Joe Flacco.
