NASHVILLE, Tenn. – After a week of practices, Tennessee State offensive lineman Robert Myers will participate in the 2015 Reese’s Senior Bowl, Saturday.
Myers and the South team will square off against the North squad at 3 p.m. on Jan. 24 at Ladd-Peeples Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
This year, Myers was selected to the Preseason All-Ohio Valley Conference Team and was the only TSU offensive lineman to start all 12 games for the Tigers this season.
Myers, a native of Lavergne, Tenn., started 35 games for Tennessee State during his four-year career and helped prop up a quarterback duo that broke the school’s record for the most pass attempts in a season in 2014.
The selection comes one year after fellow guard Kadeem Edwards participated in the Senior Bowl, becoming the first for Big Blue since Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in 2008.
With Myers, Tennessee State has now had 25 players selected to the Senior Bowl including Big Blue legends Claude Humphrey, James Marsalis, Vern Holland, Waymond Bryant and Ed “Too Tall” Jones.
Last season, eight players from the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) made Senior Bowl rosters and seven were taken in May’s NFL Draft, including Edwards.
