Sadly that title doesn't mean what its suggests...that Delone Carter will be donning a little red hat an riding around Syracuse in a mini-convertible (though I'm sure that Photoshop is coming...).

No, it means that Delone has been invited to play in the 86th annual East-West Shrine Game. Carter is one of 32 seniors to accept an invitation to play in this year’s game and the 69th former Syracuse player to participate in the game overall.

The annual East-West Shrine Game, which is America’s longest-running college all-star football game, has featured former Syracuse players including Ernie Davis, John Mackey, Art Monk, current head coach Doug Marrone, Don McPherson and Marvin Harrison.

While the teams are divided by East and West, the players come together for the beneficiary of the event, Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international pediatric specialty health care system of 22 hospitals. Former NFL coaches Wade Phillips and Dan Reeves will coach opposite each other in the game.

Fingers crossed Delone is coached by Reeves. Even at his age, I'll still take him over Wade Phillips.

Here's a complete list of SU players in the Shrine game, starting way back in 1930 with Milford Berner (good old Millie).

The game will be played on January 22, 2011 at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando and will be televised on the NFL Network. Here's the official site so you can begin obsessing along with all the NFL scouts who will be there.
