Last night we informed you guys that Vince Young would be the cover star of Madden NFL 08. Today, EA has made it official by issuing a full statement regarding the announcement. Last year's Rookie of the Year and Titans quarterback is the youngest player to ever grace the cover of a Madden game.

“It is truly an honor for me to be on the cover of Madden NFL 08, every NFL player dreams of being on the cover,” said Young. “After being named Rookie of the Year and going to the Pro Bowl my first season – this is a perfect way to start my second season in the NFL.”

EA has announced that the release date for Madden NFL 08 will be August 14th. Remember folks, you'll want to likely avoid drafting Young in your fantasy picks, the Madden curse doesn't lie. Last year’s Madden NFL 07 sold over 7 million copies, altogether, across every frigin' platform imaginable. Likewise, Madden NFL 08 will launch on the PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox, Xbox 360, PC, and even the GameCube.
