Stephen Obeng-Agyapong Accepts Invitation to East-West Shrine Game

The national championship was played on Monday, but college football isn’t over quite yet, even for Penn State.

Linebacker Stephen Obeng-Agyapong became the third Nittany Lion to accept an invitation to the East-West Shrine game earlier this week, which is one of college football’s longest running all-star games. The game will kick off at 4 p.m. on January 18 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Obeng-Agyapong will join his teammates OL John Urschel and LB Glenn Carson, who both accepted invitations to the game in early December.

The safety-turned-linebacker had 34 tackles this season, including 20 solo tackles. He also forced and recovered a fumble along with an interception in the first game of the season against Syracuse. Most of all, the fifth-year senior was one of the vocal leaders on the Nittany Lions when they needed it the most.

Last season, offensive lineman Mike Stankiewitch and linebacker Gerald Hodges played in the game, and both players now have NFL contracts.
