WVU Football’s senior running back Leddie Brown accepted his invite to become one of approximately 125 college football players to participate in the 2022 East-West Shrine Bowl.
This invite to college football’s longest-running senior All-Star Game allows Brown to perform in front of hundreds of NFL scouts and coaches.

Since 1925, the game has raised funds for Shriners Children’s Hospital, and thousands of Shrine Bowl players have gone on to play in the NFL, including WVU’s Darius Stills last season. This year’s game will be televised on NFL Network as a part of Pro Bowl Week. More than 300 Shrine Bowl alumni are on NFL rosters currently, and Brown would have the opportunity to show off his run game in front of personnel from all 32 NFL teams.
The game will be played on Feb. 3, 2022 in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium. Brown is joined by Division I, II, and III players, as well as NAIA representation.
