Austin Hoyt accepted an invite to the 2019 East-West Shrine Game.
Per BYU Athletics:
“Hoyt will participate for the West team at this year’s Shrine game. An invitation to take part in the annual East-West Shrine Game is an opportunity for the best collegiate football players in the country to showcase their talents in front of top representatives from NFL teams. A strong performance in the game can greatly impact a player’s chances of a career in the NFL. Many of professional football’s most recognized and decorated players, including Tom Brady, Brett Favre and John Elway, played in the East-West Shrine Game.”
So, it’s kind of a big deal. And it will be some good recognition for Hoyt and BYU Football.
This game will be held. January 19, 2019, Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida. Kick off is at 3 pm, and it will be televised on the NFL network. So Congrats to Austin.
