Louisiana Ragin' Cajun running back Elijah McGuire is slated to play in one of the oldest, and most respected, college football all-star games.
A senior running back out of Vandebilt Catholic in Houma, Louisiana, McGuire has accepted an invitation to play in the annual East-West Shrine Game, which is scheduled for January 21 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Now in it's 92nd year, the East-West Shrine Game, which features senior standouts from schools from both the United Sates and Canada, will be broadcast live on NFL Network.
McGuire, who is expected to be selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, compiled 1,028 rushing yards, to go along with 7 touchdowns in 2016, giving him three-consecutive 1,000-yard rushing seasons.
The second all-time leading rusher in school history, McGuire has tallied 4,103 career rushing yards.
In addition, McGuire is the school career leader in all-purpose yards (5,727 yards), touchdowns (52) and scoring (318 points).
McGuire will close out his UL career on Saturday, December 17, when the Cajuns take on the Southern Miss Golden Eagles in the New Orleans Bowl at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
