Four Longhorns participate in 2010 Pro Bowl
Jan. 31, 2010
Four former Longhorns participated in the 2010 Pro Bowl on Sunday night in Miami, as the AFC defeated the NFC, 41-34.
With the selections, there has been at least one former Longhorn chosen in nine consecutive years, which matches the UT record (1952-60, 1967-75). They also give Texas five straight years with at least two participants, and it is the eighth time overall there have been three or more Longhorns in the game.
Young made his second Pro Bowl appearance after earning a spot following his rookie season in the 2007 game. That year he became the first rookie QB to play in a Pro Bowl.
Davis has now been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls, while Hampton has made five overall, including 2004, ’06, ’07 and ’08. The five appearances tie the UT record shared by Earl Campbell, Bobby Layne, Bud McFadin and Tommy Nobis.
Orakpo joined Young as a rookie Pro Bowler in the last four years. He also became the 35th different player in UT history to reach the Pro Bowl for a total of 84 appearances.
