West Virginia defensive tackle Darius Stills has been selected to participate in the 2021 East-West Shrine Bowl.

The actual physical 2021 East-West Shrine Bowl has been canceled due to coronavirus, but the bowl will still be announcing selections this month as a way to recognize and celebrate “outstanding seniors seasons”. The bowl will also hold virtual training sessions with its selections in preparation for the 2021 NFL draft.

A senior from Fairmont, Stills has 22 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and an interception as WVUโ€™s nose guard this season. On Monday, he was named a semifinalist for this season’s Lott IMPACT Trophy. Teammate Tony Fields II will also be participating in a postseason all-star bowl, accepting an invitation to the 2021 Senior Bowl.

The honor is the latest on a long list that the Fairmont native has accrued this year. He was recentlyย named a candidate for the CLASS Award, he was named aย Chuck Bednarik Awardย andย Big 12 player of the weekย after a four-tackle, 2.5-sack game against Bayor, he was also named aย preseason All-American, theย Big 12 preseason defensive player of the yearย and is on theย Senior Bowl watch list.
