From Central Michigan to Cover Boy.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will grace the cover of the "Madden 19" video game, EA Sports announced on Twitter Wednesday.

Brown, 30, is coming off one of the biggest seasons of his career, having led the league with 1,533 receiving yards.

He has become one of the game's biggest personalities since the Steelers drafted him in the sixth round (195th overall) in 2010, out of Central Michigan.

This coming season, his ninth in the NFL, he should easily eclipse the 10,000-yard career receiving mark. He has 59 career receiving touchdowns.

Brown becomes the second player from a Michigan college to grace the cover of Madden, now in its 30th year. (Brown also was on the cover for the mobile version of the popular game, which came out in 2014). New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (Michigan) has graced the cover twice, including last year.

Detroit Lions running back Barry Sanders was on the cover in 1999 and in 2013 for the special 25th-anniversary edition, and receiver Calvin Johnson was on it in 2012.

Terrell Owens will be on the cover of the "Madden 19" Hall-of-Fame edition.
