Robert Griffin III

Robert Griffin III, He’s not only in the game, Robert Griffin III is on the cover. After putting up video game-like performances in a record-shattering final season at Baylor, the school’s first Heisman Trophy winner was announced as the new cover boy for EA Sports’ “NCAA Football 13″ video game Monday on the Waco campus.
“It’s cool. You don’t expect anything, but to get this is an honor,” Griffin said before posing for the game’s cover at Fountain Mall. “Not everybody gets to be on the cover officially. But I’m officially on the cover of ‘NCAA Football 13′ and I’m proud of it.”
The game will be released July 10, with the former Copperas Cove standout sharing the cover with one of eight former Heisman winners to be determined by fan vote beginning March 12. It was the first time the pre-eminent college football video game franchise had an on-site photo shoot at a school’s campus.
A day after wowing NFL personnel and draft pundits alike with his speed and charisma at the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Griffin was back where it all began, celebrating the experience with the fanbase that has seen him rise from college football’s youngest starting quarterback to Heisman winner.
Although he is headed back to Arizona to continue his training under quarterback guru Terry Shea, RG3 will return to Baylor for his Pro Day on March 21, when reportedly more than 100 NFL representatives are expected to attend.
“The hard work is over now, now it’s all about refining,” Griffin said.
At the combine, RG3 was officially clocked at 4.41 in the 40-yard dash to lead all quarterbacks, marking the second-fastest time for a quarterback behind the 4.33 posted by Michael Vick in 2001. Griffin also led all QBs with vertical jump of 39 inches, but fell 4 inches shy of expected No. 1 overall pick Andrew Luck’s 10-4 broad jump.
