Austin Hill and Mickey Baucus will both be on the West squad, which is coached by Jim Zorn. The game takes place on Saturday, January 17th at 4 PM eastern time. It will be broadcast on the NFL Network.
Hill, who missed all of 2013 with a knee injury, found himself being used more in a tight end role as the 2014 season progressed. He says that change gave him a much better understanding about the game of football, having to learn blocking techniques and reading blitzes among other things. The senior wide receiver finished the season second on the team in receptions with 49, and was third on the team in receiving yards with 635.
Baucus, who started all 52 games on Arizona's offensive line in his career, will get one last chance to prove himself to NFL scouts in a competitive setting in the Shrine Game. There are ten offensive lineman on the roster, so expect to see Baucus play about two quarters' worth of drives.
Hill and Baucus will be catching and blocking for some familiar faces. Both ASU quarterback Taylor Kelly and Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo are on this team. Arizona State also has an offensive lineman in this game with Jamil Douglas.
