South Dakota State University cornerback Jordan Brown recently accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game, one of college football's premier all-star showcases.
A senior from Scottsdale, Arizona, Brown earned first-team all-Missouri Valley Football Conference honors in both 2017 and 2018. He currently leads the team with 10 pass breakups, while ranking second with three interceptions. He also has forced a fumble and 21 of his 26 tackles in 2018 have been solo stops.
Brown would be the third Jackrabbit in the last two seasons to play in the East-West Shrine Game, joining wide receiver Jake Wieneke and center Jacob Ohnesorge from the 2017 senior class. In addition, running back Zach Zenner played in the East-West Shrine Game following the 2014 season.
The East-West Shrine Game is scheduled for Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The game will be televised on NFL Network, starting at 2 p.m. Central Time.
Proceeds from the game benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international specialty health care system that treats children in orthopaedics, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and palate, and burns - regardless of a family's ability to pay.
