The East-West Shrine Bowl is not just an annual college All-Star game, but a week long event giving often under-the-radar prospects the opportunity to practice and then play in front of NFL coaches and scouts.
This year, FSU WR Keith Gavin is the lone ’Nole taking part in the game as a member of the East squad.
Gavin, a former 4-star recruit, had limited production throughout his time in Tallahassee with 901 career receiving yards on 71 catches and one touchdown.

Impressing in practices this week, he will hope it materializes into a strong showing on game day:
