Former Brown standout and current Arizona Cardinal wide receiver Sean Morey was named the NFC special teams starter for the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl.

Morey finished his career at Brown (1995-98) with an Ivy League record 251 receptions for 3,850 yards and 40 touchdowns. He was voted the 1997 Ivy League Player of the Year as a junior when he caught 74 passes for an Ivy League record 1,434 yards and 15 touchdowns. The Marshfield, Mass., native is the only athlete in school history to have his number (24) retired and was recently inducted into the Brown Hall of Fame.

Perhaps no player was more moved by the selection than Morey, the special-teams standout in his eighth season, fourth team and first Pro Bowl. Morey blocked the overtime punt against Dallas that turned into the Cards' game-winning touchdown.

Morey credited his hockey-playing wife, Cara, for sacrificing her Olympic dream to let him play football, and credited every coach he had ever played for to reach such a personal achievement.

"I have lived my dream playing in the NFL," Morey said. "I have been cut more times than I'd like to admit. But even this team, I have a Heisman Trophy winner (Matt Leinart) and an NFL MVP (Warner) that I catch passes from every day at practice. I have been really blessed to come to Arizona."
