West Virginia University quarterback Jarrett Brown has accepted an invitation to play in the 85th East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 23, 2010, in Orlando, Fla., at 3 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

Jarrett Brown joins an elite list of football greats, such as John Elway, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, and 62 NFL Hall of Famers, who have played in the East-West Shrine Game, America’s longest-running college all-star football game.

Brown has posted an 11-3 career record at West Virginia as the starting quarterback. In 2009, the all-Big East Conference second-team selection completed 186-of-292 passes for 2,129 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is the second-leading rusher on the team with 423 yards on 111 carries, averaging 3.8 yards per carry and five touchdowns.

Brown is the first Mountaineer quarterback since Marc Bulger (1998) to throw for more than 2,000 yards in a season. In 2009, he has led the Mountaineers to a 9-3 record and an appearance in the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla., on Jan. 1 against Florida State.

“The East-West Shrine Game has always fielded players among college football’s best,” said East-West Shrine Game Executive Director Jack Hart. “With all 32 NFL teams represented by GMs, coaches and scouts during game week, our players have the terrific opportunity to showcase their talents and get their first glimpse of life in the NFL … ‘Just Like on Sunday.’”
