Terry Selected To Senior Bowl

Posted Oct 29, 2003

University of North Carolina senior offensive guard Jeb Terry has been selected to the 2003 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., head coach John Bunting announced on Tuesday. The Senior Bowl will be played on January 24 and will be televised by ESPN.

"I was very proud to be invited to the Senior Bowl," Terry said. "Coach (John) Bunting and coach (Hal) Hunter have done a lot for me and have made me a better player. They did a great job persuading the people in the right places that I'm deserving to be in the Senior Bowl. I'm really excited for the opportunity and I hope to represent Carolina well."

A native of Dallas, Texas, Terry has been Carolina's most consistent lineman this season and was recently named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance at Clemson. Terry graded out at 90 percent against the Tigers, had 10 knockdown blocks and zero missed assignments. He anchored an offensive line that helped pave the way for Carolina's best rushing day in nine years. The Tar Heels had 287 yards rushing at Clemson, the most since 1994.

"I think Jeb is very deserving," said Bunting. "I think it is good for our football program to have our players playing in postseason all-star games. I think people notice that. I think recruits notice that we are doing a great job getting our players placed in these games."

This is the third consecutive year Carolina has been represented in the Senior Bowl. Defensive tackle Ryan Sims was selected in 2001 and wide receiver Sam Aiken made the team in 2002.
