Peyton Hillis has shocked the football world again.
A year after rushing for over 1,100 yards and collecting 11 touchdowns, the Cleveland Browns running back defeated 31 opponents to be named the 2012 Madden cover star.
“It means a lot to me and my family,” Hillis said of joining such Pro Bowlers as Drew Brees and Adrian Peterson as those that have been featured on the front of the video game. “I just want to say thank you.”
All 32 NFL teams submitted a representative for the honor, with Hillis voted for the top spot over Michael Vick in the final showdown.
