Lawrence, Stuckey, Wall shine at East-West Shrine Game

January, 25, 2010
Several Big 12 players likely helped themselves in the upcoming NFL draft with big performances at the East-West Shrine Game. Kansas safety Darrell Stuckey bounced back from some positional struggles earlier in the week to lead the West team in tackles in the East team's 13-10 victory in the 85th annual game Saturday in Orlando, Fla. Here's a look at former Big 12 players and what they did in the game. All of them played for the West team.

  • Stuckey notched a team-high six solo tackles and seven tackles total.
  • Texas Tech cornerback Jamar Wall had six total tackles (five solo, one assist) and broke up three passes.
  • Texas kicker Hunter Lawrence converted a 47-yard field goal in his only attempt, added a point after touchdown and averaged 62 yards on three kickoffs.
  • Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing completed 2 of 5 passes for 11 yards and also rushed twice for 11 yards.
  • Oklahoma State running back Keith Toston rushed four times for 9 yards.

Sixteen Big 12 players hoping to better their draft status will be participating in the East-West Shrine Game Jan. 23 at the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

Baylor linebacker Joe Pawelek, Iowa State offensive lineman Reggie Stephens, Kansas State defensive end Jeffrey Fitzgerald, Oklahoma State running back Keith Toston, Texas Tech cornerback Jamar Wall, Texas Tech guard Brandon Carter, Colorado tight end Riar Geer, Kansas wide receiver Kerry Meier, Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing, Kansas safety Darrell Stuckey, Missouri defensive tackle Jaron Baston, Nebraska safety Larry Asante, Oklahoma running back Chris Brown, Oklahoma cornerback Brian Jackson, Texas defensive tackle Lamarr Houston and Texas kicker Hunter Lawrence are on the West team's roster.

Every Big 12 program except Texas A&M will be represented in the annual all-star game, which will be played for the 85th time.

It will be particularly critical for players like Pawelek, Fitzgerald, Reesing and Toston as they perform before professional scouts in practices next week leading up to the game.

And keep an eye out for Stephens, who plans to work at guard after serving as a center for the Cyclones this season.
