First there was Senior Day. Then there was Florida State’s home finale. And then the Independence Bowl. It felt like a parade of finales for the Florida State seniors as the trying 2017 season came to a close. But a trio will sport spears on their helmets one more time today, during the 2018 East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The game, which splits up the rosters based on geography, will kickoff today at 3 pm on the NFL Network. Three ’Nole defenders are on the East squad. Senior safety Trey Marshall, of Lake City, Florida, begins the list and will wear his familiar No. 20. Senior linebacker Jacob Pugh, a Dade City, Florida native and graduate of Tallahassee’s Godby High School, will wear No. 34.
Also on the East roster is redshirt-senior linebacker Matthew Thomas, of Miami, Florida. However, Thomas is currently listed as injured for Saturday’s all-star contest.
