RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech defensive tackle Justin Ellis, a four-year letterman that tallied over 100 tackles in his career, has accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl.

Ellis, a West Monroe product of Neville High School, will also play in the East-West Shrine Game today (Jan. 18) at 3 p.m. and will be played at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. The Senior Bowl will be played at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. next Saturday, Jan. 25. Both games will be shown live on the NFL Network.

This marks the second consecutive year Louisiana Tech has had a representative invited to both of those postseason all-star games. Last year, wide receiver Quinton Patton was invited to the Senior Bowl while quarterback Colby Cameron played in the East-West Shrine Game.

Ellis posted 102 total tackles in his four-year career at Louisiana Tech with 9.5 tackles for a loss of 21 yards. He forced two fumbles and recovered two fumbles in his career and was credited with three QB hurries and three pass break-ups.
