Help choose the NFL Blitz Cover Star

EA Sports have sent over some details on how they’ll be choosing their first ever digital cover athlete. The three men vying for the role are the Ravens’ Ray Rice, the Falcons’ Roddy White and the 49ers’ Patrick Willis.

The voting for the NFL star to earn this accolade will take place during the Spike Video Game Awards – which is on December 10th at 8:00pm Eastern / 5:00pm Pacific. Joe Montana & Jerry Rice will be announcing the winner at the end of the night.

Spike’s Geoff Keighley had this to say:

“I can’t think of a better way to welcome back the beloved NFL Blitz franchise than by having two of the greatest athletes to ever put on a helmet announce which one of their contemporaries –Roddy White, Ray Rice or Patrick Willis – will represent the game when it hits the PLAYSTATION Network and XBOX LIVE Arcade in January.”

While Anthony Stevenson of EA Sports enthused:

“Considering there are a multitude of fans of the legendary NFL Blitz games, we are thrilled to usher in a new era for the franchise with the all-new title, which is in high definition for the first time. Fittingly, this will also be the first time EA SPORTS will honor a digital cover athlete and we are excited that the fans will be such an integral part of this milestone.”

NFL Blitz will be hitting the PSN for $14.99 sometime in January.
