Trinity's Curry to Play in All-Star Game

 

San Antonio – Trinity University Tigers senior wide receiver Riley Curry of Sugar Land, Texas (Clements), has been selected to play on Team Stars & Stripes in the Tazón de Estrellas (Bowl of the Stars) Dec. 19, in Monterrey, Mexico.

Formerly known as the Aztec Bowl, the game pits 50 outstanding football players from the NCAA Division III against the Tec Monterrey All-Stars. This year’s game will be played on the Tec de Monterrey Campus Estado de Mexico. Team members will practice at the Tec Monterrey facility near Mexico City from December 14-18.

The 6-foot, 196-pound Curry is the seventh Tiger to play in the U.S.-Mexico all-star game. The last Trinity player to compete was defensive tackle Baron Koch, who played in the 2007 Aztec Bowl in Chihuahua, Mexico. Koch recorded a quarterback sack in the U.S. 37-19 victory over Mexico.

Curry is just the second player in Trinity history to reach 200 receptions in a career. He is in fourth place on the career receiving yards list, eclipsing 2,500 yards. This season, Curry has 42 receptions, in eight games, for 513 yards and three touchdowns.

The Tigers, led by 20th-year head coach Steve Mohr, stand at 5-3 overall, and are 2-2 in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference. Trinity wraps up its regular-season home schedule Saturday by hosting Centre College in an SCAC game at 1:30 p.m. at E.M. Stevens Stadium.

Curry stands fourth in career receptions and second in career receiving yards as a Trinity Tiger, and leads the team in receiving this year
