Cactus Bowl Selections

KINGSVILLE, TEXAS – Texas A&M-Kingsville had three players add their names to the confirmation list for the 2011 Cactus Bowl that will be played January 7 at Javelina Stadium at 7 p.m.  Linebacker Tressor Baptiste (New York, NY/Curtis HS), offensive tackle Trent Perkins (Alice/Alice HS) and safety Corey Robertson (Denison/Denison HS) each accepted their invitations to the NCAA Division II All-Star game.
      
Baptiste and Robertson were integral parts of a Javelina defense that was one of the best in the country and #1 against the run.  Baptiste was named the Lone Star Conference South Division Linebacker of the Year and earned Daktronics First Team Super Region 4 honors.  Robertson earned First Team LSC South Division and Daktronics Second Team Super Region 4 honors.
      
Perkins was moved from right tackle to left tackle this season on offense and earned Second Team LSC South honors.  He blocked for one of the most prolific passing offenses in school history.
      
The three Javelinas will be given the opportunity to practice and play with some of the best talent in the NCAA Division II ranks.  Scouts from every NFL team will evaluate the players.
