WVU Football WR Bryce Ford-Wheaton Celebrates Touchdown

West Virginia wide receiver Bryce Ford-Wheaton has landed a big opportunity in regards to his football future after the season.

Ford-Wheaton alluded to receiving an invitation to the prestigious East-West Shrine Bowl by quoting a tweet from the game’s official account. The redshirt junior added “appreciate the opportunity” to the tweet that announced the first round of official invites to players selected to be part of the game have been sent out.

The East-West Shrine Bowl is an annual postseason All-Star game that serves as a showcase for the top senior college players. Ford-Wheaton would be a senior if not for his redshirt season so can be invited to take part in the game. The 2020 season marred by the COVID-19 pandemic also allows the senior rule to be loosened.

So far this season, Ford-Wheaton has 48 receptions for 567 yards and five touchdowns. His production has calmed down a bit after catching two touchdowns in each WVU’s first two games, but clearly not enough to rob him of invites to events like the East-West Shrine Bowl.
