Jan. 11, 2013

RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech, coming off a 9-3 year where the Bulldogs led the nation in both total offense and scoring, is sending eight football players to postseason all-star games beginning with Friday’s Casino Del Sol All-Star Classic in Tuscon, Ariz.

Leading off in the all-star games are Ray Holley and Myles White when the Casino Del Sol All-Star Classic kicks off Friday at 9 p.m. CT. Holley and White can be seen on the East Team in the game broadcast on ESPN3.

White will also be playing in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl at the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 19 alongside former Bulldog teammates Stephen Warner and Kevin Saia. Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will serve as head coaches for the American and National Teams and the game will be televised on ESPN2 on Jan. 19 at 5 p.m. CT with Joe Tessitore, Todd McShay, Bill Polian and Quint Kessenich calling the action.

Also on Jan. 19, Jordan Mills will be playing in the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic in Montgomery, Ala. The two teams will be coached by former NFL coaches Jim Bates and Dan Reeves and the game will be televised on the CBS Sports Network on at 2 p.m. CT that day.

Former quarterback Colby Cameron, who set an NCAA Record this season with 444 consecutive pass attempts without an interception, will also see action on Jan. 19 as he will play for the East Team in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game. Cameron is one of three quarterbacks on the roster along with Kansas State’s Collin Klein and Southeastern Louisiana’s Nathan Stanley.
