RUSTON, La. - Louisiana Tech defensive end IK Enemkpali has been added to the Senior Bowl roster, joining fellow Bulldog Justin Ellis in one of the most prestigious postseason all-star games.

Enemkpali led Louisiana Tech with 11.0 tackles for a loss of 43 yards last season and was one of only two defensive linemen in the country to record multiple interceptions. The Pflugerville, Texas native was named first team All-Conference USA and All-Louisiana after making 47 total tackles and being credited with seven QB hurries on the year.

With 17.5 sacks accumulated over four years, Enemkpali finished his collegiate career ranked third all-time in sacks in school history behind Walter Johnson (38) and Matt Broha (22).

The Senior Bowl will be played at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. on Saturday, Jan. 25 and will be shown live on the NFL Network.

This marks the second consecutive year Louisiana Tech has had multiple representatives invited to the Senior Bowl as Ryan Allen, Jordan Mills and Quinton Patton all played in the Senior Bowl last year. All three are currently on NFL rosters as well.
