Sack One of the Nation’s Top Quarterbacks on XBOX LIVE
NFL Draft prospect Brady Quinn to challenge fans in upcoming Xbox LIVE Game with Fame session.
Former Notre Dame quarterback and potential No. 1 overall draft pick Brady Quinn is spending the night before the start of his professional career doing what he loves the most: hanging with family and friends and playing EA Sports’ “Madden NFL 07™” on Xbox 360™. Quinn, who led the Fighting Irish to two Bowl Championship Series games during his illustrious career, will lead a virtual team on the field as part of the latest Xbox LIVE® Game with Fame session.
Xbox LIVE Gold members interested in challenging the strong-arm quarterback in “Madden NFL 07” from 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. EDT/4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. PDT on Friday, April 27, 2007, should send a friend request to the gamertag BQuinnGWF.
Quinn, who is arguably the top prospect in this year’s draft, will have his professional fate decided April 28-29 in New York City when each of the professional teams selects the future of its franchise. Many analysts speculate that Quinn will be selected within the top several picks on draft day. The lucky gamers who are able to challenge him the evening before will no doubt be playing against a rising star.
Quinn received the Maxwell Award as college football's top player in 2006, and he was a finalist for last season’s Heisman Trophy. Quinn also was named the Cingular All-America Player of the Year during his senior year and garnered the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award as the nation’s top senior college quarterback.
The Xbox LIVE Game with Fame program gives Xbox LIVE subscribers the unique opportunity to meet, chat and play against some of today’s hottest stars. Past Game with Fame celebrity players include Kansas City Chiefs’ Larry Johnson, New York Jets’ Jonathan Vilma, Jack Black, Jenny McCarthy, Chamillionaire, New York Yankees’ Jason Giambi, Ryan Cabrera and Ludacris.

In “Madden NFL 07,” players control the running game like never before. For the first time ever, players step up as the lead blocker to create a hole, and then take control of the tailback and smash through, overpower or slash away from would-be tacklers while fighting for every yard. Innovative rushing controls give players a game-breaking ground attack featuring all-new jukes, cutbacks and the distinct running styles of their favorite quarterbacks.
