McCloud to play in East-West Shrine game

TAMPA, Fla. — Florida State defensive tackle and former Thomas County Central standout Anthony McCloud has accepted an invitation to play in the 88th East-West Shrine game. The game will be held Jan. 19 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., kicking off at 4 p.m. and televised live on NFL Network.

McCloud, who tallied 24 tackles and one sack this past season as a senior with the Seminoles, joins an elite list of football greats  such as John Elway, Tom Brady, Brett Favre and 62 NFL Hall of Famers who have played in the East-West Shrine game — along with 52 players currently on active NFL rosters.

“The East-West Shrine Game has always fielded players among college football’s best,” said East-West Shrine Game Executive Director Harold Richardson. “With all 32 NFL teams represented by GMs, coaches and scouts during game week, our players have the terrific opportunity to showcase their talents and get their first glimpse of life in the NFL … ‘Just like on Sunday.’”
