Lapeer East graduate Jake Long who was the 2008 NFL First Round Draft Pick is now in the running for the 2012 EA Sports Madden Football Cover. Find out more after the jump.

EA Sports is running a voting contest to find out who the fans want to grace the latest edition of Madden '12. They are putting the athletes up against each other in a seeded bracket (see photo below) in their own divisions for the first round.

If you would like to vote for Jake, or any other athlete check out the EA Sports bracket hosted by ESPN. My only concern with voting for Jake would be the Madden Curse, what do you think?
