Duke Quarterback Daniel Jones won MVP honors at the Senior Bowl, leading the North to a 34-24 win over the South at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
Jones was one of 11 juniors who were allowed to play in the game because they had graduated college, a rule enacted in 2014.
Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter made his mark in the game, producing a highlight with one of the South Team’s two QB hurries and recording one of only three tackles-for-loss for his team in his limited playing time.

Ledbetter got a call out in the Senior Bowl practice report on Wednesday for his fierce and active play:
“Another defensive standout was Georgia defensive lineman Jonathan Ledbetter, who seemed to be around the action whenever he was on the field. He was particularly prominent during a physical 9-on-7 session devoted to running plays. By the end of the practice, Ledbetter’s No. 13 jersey had been nearly torn from his torso.”
Georgia long snapper Nick Moore, at 26 years old, was the second oldest player in the game.
UMass standout Andy Isabella was the game’s leading receiver with seven catches for 74 yards and a touchdown for the North.
Georgia fans might remember Isabella had 15 catches for 219 yards including TD receptions of 75 and 45 yards against the Bulldogs this season.
The North, coached by Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders staff, trailed 12-3 at halftime.
“All I said (at halftime) was adjust your own mindset and come out there and finish with authority,” Gruden said. “The whole team impressed me.”
