Football All-Star Game to Have Raider Flavor|
October 30, 1998
PALO ALTO, Calif. - This year's East-West Shrine Bowl college football all-star game will have a definite Texas Tech flavor with the announcement that the head coach of the West Team will be Red Raider head coach Spike Dykes. In addition, Texas Tech seniors Montae Reagor and Donnie Hart have been invited to participate in the game.
Scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 16 at Stanford Stadium, the East-West Shrine Bowl is the oldest college football all-star game in the U.S. The game will be broadcast nationally by ESPN and all proceeds from the game are used to provide outstanding medical care, free of charge, to all children at the 22 Shriners Hospitals for Children located throughout North America.
"I am really honored to be invited to coach in the East-West Shrine Bowl," said Dykes, who is in a record-setting 12th season as head football coach at Texas Tech. "This particular all-star game is about so much more than football. This is one of the few events that I can truly say that I really, really want to be a part of because of the many things they do for children. Without the help of the Shriners, a lot of children who need medical care would not be able to receive it. I'm proud to be involved with this all-star game and I am really looking forward to it."
