A tweet from former Missourian reporter and current Kansas City Star reporter Peter Baugh confirmed that Terry Beckner Jr. will skip Saturday’s East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Florida, to focus on his preparations for the NFL Draft Combine.
Missouri football will still be represented in the Shrine game by offensive lineman Paul Adams and tight end Kendall Blanton.
The East-West Shrine game will kick off at 2 p.m. CST Saturday and will be broadcast live on the NFL Network as well as on Sirius XM Radio Channel 88.
Lock, Hall headline Senior Bowl
There are still more college football all-star games to be played. Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, alongside wide receiver Emanuel Hall, will represent MU in the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Jan. 26 in Mobile, Alabama.
During the game that in the past has featured the likes of Walter Payton, Brett Favre, Dan Marino, Bo Jackson and many more, Lock and Hall will have many eyes on them — including the sets of eyes from 32 NFL teams that could determine the pair’s football future.
You can watch the two Tigers play for Team North at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 26 on NFL Network.
