Former LSU fullback J.C. Copeland named 2014 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl MVP after scoring two 1-yard rushing touchdowns.
quote:

"You picture it in your mind before you play the game and it just happened," Copeland said. "It's an amazing thing that I was put in a position to do it and I took advantage of it."

Copeland, a 6-foot-1, 270-pound former defensive tackle, never had a multi-touchdown game in 42 career games at LSU.

"We originally didn't have him in a running back position, he was always leading as a blocker," said National coach Dick Vermeil, formerly the head coach of the Chiefs, Eagles and Rams. "When we saw him on the field, we said when we get down the field and it's inches to go, we might as well give it to the 270-pounder."
