Madden 12 Cover Athlete Selected

By Jonathan Barnes, 7 years ago
In a story that equates to "The Little Engine That Could", EA Sports has announced the winner of the fans' vote for the cover athlete for the upcoming Madden NFL 12.

Peyton Hillis, starting running back for the Cleveland Browns, will appear on the cover of this year's game after beating out Michael Vick in the final round of voting.

As an Ohioan, I've done a little on-site reporting and can tell you that the denizens of Cuyahoga County are already apoplectic in delight and fear: happy that "Freak Out of Fayetteville" will be the first Brown on the cover but scared to death, knowing that their "Hillbilly Freight Train" is the next in line for the Madden Curse.

As we reported earlier, Madden NFL 12 will still be released "on time" regardless of the current, NFL labor situation.
