NFL teams sign over 100 East-West All-stars for training camp

The 32 NFL teams have been working non-stop to secure the best prospects in professional football for the 2017-2018 season. Our East-West all-stars have continued to excel in professional football, ranking amongst the top prospects for this year's NFL season. In the past week, more than 100 all-stars from the 92nd East-West Shrine Game have been signed by NFL teams. That’s a lot of talent coming from a game dedicated to supporting Shriners Hospitals for Children. Every year, the East-West Shrine Game gives players the opportunity to interview and showcase their talents to NFL scouts, while bringing attention to the special mission of Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Once NFL teams finalize their top picks, they will pack up and head to training camp, working round-the-clock to develop our all-stars into the new, premier athletes of the NFL.

“Once players get into a NFL camp they have a chance to compete for a job,” said Harold Richardson, East–West Shrine Game executive director. "It’s great to see our players rewarded for their hard work. We intend to continue to grow the game and field the best teams possible for the league and for our hospitals. Our ultimate goal is to fill the stadium for the kids,” said Richardson.

Kick-off will be at 3 p.m. EST, January 20, 2018, at Tropicana Field in sunny St. Petersburg, Fla. Are you following your East-West All-stars? Show and share your support as they fight to represent the best of the East-West Shrine Game and become the next NFL greats.
