OXFORD, Miss. – The East-West Shrine Game will feature a pair of Ole Miss Rebels as offensive tackle Bradley Sowell joins Kentrell Lockett on the roster for the 87th annual event. It was also announced Tuesday that defensive end Wayne Dorsey will compete in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game.

The East-West Shrine Game will be held Jan. 21 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., kicking off at 3 p.m. CT and televised live on the NFL Network. 

A two-time All-SEC honoree, Sowell started 36 of his final 37 games in the Red and Blue, all at left tackle. The Hernando product blocked for 17 individual 100-yard rushing performances during his career, including a pair of 200-yard outbursts.

Sowell is the 21st Rebel all-time to accept an invitation to the East-West Game dating back to 1967 and the eighth in the last five years.

The Casino Del Sol All-Star Game is set for Jan. 16 at 7 p.m. CT at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz. The game will be televised live on select Fox Sports affiliates, including Fox Sports Arizona.

A two-year letterwinner from Baltimore, Dorsey was a midseason All-SEC pick before a broken right arm cut his senior year short. He finished the season as the team leader in TFLs and sacks despite playing in just six of the 12 contests.

This is the second year of the Casino Del Sol Game, which was formerly known as the Eastham Energy All-Star Game. Ole Miss was represented in the inaugural event by Jeremiah Masoli, who accounted for 254 yards of total offense in the game.
