Now that the regular season’s wrapped up, postseason honors are beginning to pour in for players around the country. We’ve seen Steve Ishmael and other Syracuse Orange players already recognized by the ACC. The latest SU senior to receive some praise? Offensive tackle Jamar McGloster.

According to a release from Syracuse Athletics, McGloster is headed to the East-West Shrine Game taking place on January 20. Since 1925, the annual game benefits the Shriners Hospital for Children. This year’s contest will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. (home of the Tampa Bay Rays baseball team and the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl).

McGloster started for the second straight season, playing on 1,034 snaps with 12 knockdown blocks. He’s the 77th player in school history to get an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Recent invites from Syracuse have also included Jay Bromley, Sean Hickey, (2011 MVP Delone Carter), Doug Hogue, Ryan Bartholomew and Ryan Durand.

Historically, tons of SU greats have been part of this game, including Ernie Davis, Larry Csonka, Art Monk and Marvin Harrison.

Congrats to Jamar, and looking forward to seeing you showcase your talents for scouts next month!
