Defensive back looks to get leg-up on possible pro career

Former Pitt safety Dom DeCicco will participate in the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game, sponsored by the NFL Players Association, on Feb. 5 in San Antonio, Texas.

The contest will take place at the Alamodome and will feature NFL draft-eligible senior college players originally from Texas, or who play college football in Texas, against top seniors from around the nation, with televised coverage beginning at 2 p.m. on CBS College Sports.

DeCicco (Jefferson Hills, Pa./Thomas Jefferson), who will dress for The Nation squad, concluded his Pitt career with 12 interceptions and 244 tackles. In his final collegiate game, a 27-10 win in the BBVA Compass Bowl over Kentucky, DeCicco led the team with nine tackles, including two for loss, and a forced fumble.

Players will arrive in San Antonio on Monday, Jan. 31, for a week of testing, practices and community service events. Leading The Nation on the field will be coach Jerry Glanville, while Team Texas’ head coach will be Bill Bates.  

In the game’s four-year history, over 400 players who have played in the all-star game have gone on to sign NFL contracts.
