NCAA Football 2003 cover athlete announced

Yet another sports game gets yet another professional athlete on its cover. Details inside.


Electronic Arts has announced the identity of the athlete who will grace the cover of the company's upcoming college football game, NCAA Football 2003. That athlete is Joey Harrington, 2001 Heisman Trophy finalist, ex-University of Oregon quarterback, and the Detroit Lions' first-round pick (third overall) in the recent NFL draft.

On the topic of the deal, Harrington said, "This has been a very exciting year for me and being on the cover of NCAA Football 2003 is a huge thrill. I'm a big fan of video games and never imagined I would ever be on the cover of one. EA is known for making the best games and it is an honor that they chose me to be on theirs."

NCAA Football 2003 will be available on all three console platforms this July.
