Jay Bromley, the Syracuse Orange's senior All-ACC defensive tackle, has been invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game, the exhibition showcase announced on Tuesday. The game will be played Sat., January 18th, at 4 p.m. ET and will be broadcasted on the NFL Network.
Bromely, who was a team captain and led the SU defense in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (14.5), is the fourth Orange player to play in the game in the past four seasons. Last year, former Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas played in the game, while in 2011 both running back Delone Carter and linebacker Doug Hogue participated.
Bromley will play for the East Team, which will be coached by former Atlanta Falcons and TV personality Jerry Glanville. The West Team will be coached by former Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel.
What this also means is Bromley will more than likely not play in the Senior Bowl, which is being held the following Saturday. Regardless, this is a nice honor for Bromley who was easily the Orange's best defender this season.
