West Virginia University wide receiver Alric Arnett 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.

Alric Arnett joins fellow Mountaineer teammate quarterback Jarrett Brown as a 2010 invitee to the game, which is America’s longest-running college all-star football game.

As a senior in 2009, Arnett was WVU’s second-leading receiver with 43 receptions for 586 yards, an average of 13.6 yards per catch and three touchdowns. He had a long catch of 46 yards. Arnett finished with a season-high seven catches against Pitt and 84 yards at USF.

“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.’”

While the teams are divided by East and West, the players come together for the beneficiary of the event, Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international pediatric specialty health care system.
