Meanwhile Down at Shrine Grime Practice


His JMU football career might be over (sob), but it looks like Jimmy Effin Moreland is busy doing Jimmy things. Moreland is participating in the 94th edition of the East West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida on January 19. The game is the longest running college all star game in the country and it brings together top players to showcase their skills for NFL scouts. It also raises money to support child patients at Shriners Hospitals and gives the players an opportunity to visit and interact with some of the kids who’ll benefit.

It’s a great opportunity for Jimmy to have a little fun and get some visibility to potentially kick off an NFL career. Last year, 70 players who participated in the game landed a spot on an NFL roster. In fact, 77 Shrine Bowl participants have gone on to Hall of Fame careers, including guys like Brett Favre, Walter Payton, Dick Butkus, and Tom Brady. To no JMU fan’s surprise, Jimmy was already turning heads on day one of practice. He picked off two passes, including the one featured above. Some NFL team is gonna give him a shot and reap the rewards.

You can watch Jimmy do his thing. The game will be broadcast on the NFL Network at 3:00 PM on Saturday, January 19.
