Both players targeted on the last play of the game were Division 2 players

butlerD2 Football, today you need to stand up.  You need to Re-Tweet this article, and post it everywhere. 

Division 2 players are told week in and week out that they cannot make it to the NFL.  It is too hard to make it to the NFL, it is too hard to showcase your talent, but last night in the biggest game of the year the Seattle Seahawks targeted Ricardo Lockette.  Lockette was a standout wide receiver at Fort Valley State University a small Division 2 school.  Not only was it a small school, it is a Historical Black College and University (HBCU) school.  It is very hard to get recognition from an HBCU school. 

Well the player that made the interception was also a Division 2 player.  Malcolm Butler was a standout for 2 years at West Alabama.  His interception was amazing, and while Ricardo’s coaches are trying to blame him for being more physical, they need to look at themselves in the mirror. 90 percent of the country would have ran the ball, but instead they trusted their D2 player over the other teams.  Think about it like that….
