Sam Houston State senior wide receiver Trey Diller caught a pass for 16 yards as a member of the winning team in the National Football League Players Association Collegiate All-Star Game Saturday  in Carson, Calif.

The game was televised on ESPN2.

Diller played for the NFLPA National team that defeated the American team 34-0

Kansas quarterback Dayne Crist was named as the game's "Most Valuable Player" after throwing for a touchdown and running for another.

Diller led the Bearkats in receiving this season with 62 catches for 927 yards and four touchdowns. He also has been effective as a return specialist, ranking third in the Southland in both punt returns and kickoffs. He finished the season as the league's all-purpose yards leader.

The senior from Spring, Texas became the first Sam Houston player to receive All-Southland Conference honors at both wide receiver and return specialist.

In Diller's career he had 1,190 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. He caught two touchdowns during the 2011 FCS Playoff run to the national championship game.

During the week preceding the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, participants received an in-depth introduction to their union - the primary resource for players for information on the business of football and how to succeed in the NFL and in their post-football careers.

Additionally, pro-football players and coaching legends will work with the game's future stars, giving them first-hand insight on what it takes to win on and off of the field.

The two all-star teams will be coached by Dick Vermeil and Herm Edwards.
