Ute football seniors receive all-star invites

Finishing ranked among the top teams in the country has proven fruitful for some U football seniors, who have been invited to play in various postseason all-star games.

This Saturday, three Utes will suit up for the West team in the Shrine Game. The event takes place in SBC Stadium in San Francisco, and will be attended by safety Morgan Scalley, wide receiver Paris Warren, and offensive lineman Chris Kemoeatu.

Jan. 22 will see linebacker Tommy Hackenbruck suit up alongside defensive end Jonathan Fanene in Las Vegas for the LVAAC game.

The most well-attended game for the U is the Hula Bowl, also held on Jan. 22.

Kemoeatu and Scalley will be there, and will be joined by running back Marty Johnson and defensive tackle Sione Pouha.

Several Utes are expected to be invited to the Senior Bowl on Jan. 29, but the roster will not be released until Jan. 23.
