MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State’s Corey Adams will showcase his long-snapping ability February 5 in the 2011 NFL Players Association Game as a member of Team Nation in the annual all-star game.

The contest, formerly known as the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game, will be played in San Antonio, Texas, and feature NFL draft-eligible senior college football players with connections to the State of Texas in an all-star game against players from all other states.


Over 400 players who have played in the NFL Players Association Game have gone on to sign NFL contracts over the game’s four-year history. The 2011 event will be the first time the game has been played in San Antonio after spending its first four years in El Paso, Texas. Kickoff for this year’s game is at 1 p.m. in the Alamodome. 


Adams was flawless from his long-snapper position this past season and ended his Wildcat career with a streak of 482 perfect snaps. The Monument, Colo., native was a First Team All-American by Phil Steele and was K-State’s Special Teams MVP in both 2009 and 2010.

In the classroom, Adams was a First Team Academic All-Big 12 pick and also a semifinalist for the Campbell Trophy and a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award.
