All Stars from the  Asset Protect East-West Shrine Game visit with children at the Shriners HospitalOn January 17th, more than 100 of the nation’s finest college football players spent several hours visiting with kids who receive care at Shriners Hospitals for Children Tampa. The athletes joined the children in enjoying various games and sports, face painting, music, dancing and autographing East-West Shrine Game jerseys and footballs.

“Today has been a great experience,” said University of Central Florida Defensive Tackle Torell Troup. “There are kids here who have suffered a lot, but they wake up in the morning with smiles on their faces. It’s good to be able to brighten up their day.”

The all-stars played in the Asset Protect East-West Shrine Game on Jaurary 23rd in Orlando, which is the longest-running college all-star football game in the country and features some of the finest NCAA athletes. While the teams are divided by East and West, the players come together for the beneficiary of the event: Shriners Hospitals for Children.
