Florida football senior center Drew Miller was invited to participate at the 83rd-annual East-West Shrine Game as a member of the East squad the University of Houston Athletics Department announced Wednesday.

The annual game for college football prospects will be on Saturday, Jan. 19, at John O’Quinn Field in Houston’s Robertson Stadium televised on ESPN2 at 6 p.m.

Drew Miller was honored as an All-SEC Honorable Mention selection by the Associated Press and was the Southeastern Conference Lineman of the Week for his efforts against Florida State in which the UF offense compiled 541 yards of total offense. He has started all 12 games he has played in this year, marking the completion of his transition from guard to center.

Every year since 1925, the East-West Shrine Game has been played to help raise money and awareness for Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international network of 22 pediatric specialty hospitals that provide care for children with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries and cleft lip and palate - all at no charge. To date, the game has helped raise more than $14 million and informed millions of people about the mission of this extraordinary philanthropy.

The 82nd East-West Shrine Game in 2007 included 37 players who were selected in the NFL Draft this past April, while an additional 51 players were later signed as free agent.
