Cole, Graham to represent NC State in Senior Bowl

Posted January 16, 2012

— A pair of NC State standouts will have one more opportunity to showcase their talents on a national stage later this month at the 2012 Senior Bowl. Linebacker Audie Cole and wide receiver T.J. Graham have both officially accepted invitations to the senior showcase event.

The 63rd Senior Bowl is set for 3 p.m. (CT) on Saturday, Jan. 28th in Mobile's Ladd- Peebles Stadium. The game and all practices will be televised by NFL Network.

Cole and Graham have proven to be two of the better players in the ACC over the course of their respective careers, Senior Bowl President and CEO Steve Hale said.

"We're confident they'll both do a fine job in representing NC State here at the Senior Bowl," he said. 

Cole was an Honorable Mention All-ACC selection for the Wolfpack this season after posting a team-high 132 total tackles. He also notched 14 tackles for loss, six sacks, eight quarterback hurries and two pass breakups.

He had seven double-digit tackle games, including a career-high 16 stops against both Cincinnati and Georgia Tech. He leaves NC State tied for 12th in school history with 328 tackles and is 13th on the school􏰁s all-time list with 32.5 tackles for loss and tenth with 15 sacks.

Graham, a first-team All-ACC performer, recorded four 100-yard receiving yard games this season and finished the year with 46 catches for 757 yards and seven touchdowns. His best outing of the year came against Cincinnati when he reeled in seven passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns.

He was also used in the return game, totaling 1,181 yards and scoring one touchdown. The Raleigh, N.C native finished his career with 99 receptions for 1,453 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. He􏰁s the school􏰁s all-time leader in kickoff returns (137) and kickoff return yardage (3,153).
