- Baylor Bookstore and EA SPORTSTM
are collaborating efforts to host an all-day launch party for NCAA® Football '13 in order to show support for former Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, Robert Griffin III
. The eyes of the Waco and Baylor community have been on Griffin III since the start of his academic career at Baylor University in 2008. Following three record-setting seasons behind center at Baylor, Griffin III was drafted to the Washington Redskins in the first round of the 2012 NFL draft.
The launch party will be held on Tuesday, July 10, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Baylor Bookstore, located on South 5th Street on Baylor University campus. Griffin III will not be at the event.
Attendees will have the opportunity to play NCAA Football '13 in the bookstore and in a mobile gaming unit. The Rolling Video Games trailer is equipped with leather couches and three flat screen televisions.
The Launch Party also features visits from ESPN's John Morris along with the Baylor cheerleaders and Bruiser. Closing the event, EA Sports has donated some great prizes as giveaways - including a custom painted PlayStation 3, two posters signed by Robert Griffin III and Barry Sanders, five NCAA footballs, five pairs of Robert Griffin III socks and several copies of the NCAA '13.
