OXFORD, Miss. - Two more Ole Miss seniors - wide receiver Ja-Mes Logan and offensive lineman Emmanuel McCray - have been selected to postseason all-star games, giving the Rebels a total of seven players chosen for all-star events.

Logan has been named to the East roster in the East-West Shrine Game, which will be held Saturday, Jan. 18, at 3 p.m. CT in St. Petersburg, Fla. The game will be played at Tropicana Field and televised by the NFL Network. Former NFL coaches Jerry Glanville and Romeo Crennel will coach the East and West teams, respectively. Crennel was actually Ole Miss' defensive line coach in 1978-79.

A 6-foot-3, 183-pound receiver from Houston, Texas, Logan played in 49 games during his Rebel career and was a full-time starter in his senior season. He finished his career tied for seventh in school history with 136 career catches and 12th with 1,734 receiving yards. He caught a career-high 44 passes for 583 yards and three scores as a senior.

McCray accepted an invitation to play in the inaugural Medal of Honor Bowl, which will take place Saturday, Jan. 11, at 1 p.m. CT in Charleston, S.C. The game will be played at Johnson Hagood Stadium on the campus of The Citadel. Head coaches for the game are former college and NFL coaches Chan Gailey (National team) and Ralph Friedgen (American team).

McCray, who was selected to the National team roster, played in 38 career games with 17 starts at left tackle for the Rebels. A 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman from Jackson, Miss., McCray patiently earned his way into the starting lineup in 2012 after three years of limited action to begin his college career. He started every game at left tackle as a junior and was a part-time starter this year, sharing the duties with freshman phenom Laremy Tunsil.

Logan and McCray join five other Rebels who were previously announced on all-star game rosters - Mike Marry and Charles Sawyer (NFLPA Collegiate Bowl) and Tyler Campbell, Jeff Scott and Evan Swindall (College All-Star Bowl).
