Nealy Accepts East-West Shrine Game Invitation

Dec. 13, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. – Georgia Tech senior linebacker Quayshawn Nealy has accepted an invitation to play in the 90th East-West Shrine Game, which will be held Jan. 17, 2015, at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Nealy was named second-team All-ACC by ACSMA and third-team by the league’s head coaches.  The Lakeland, Fla., native has started all 13 games at linebacker, while racking up 90 tackles, which ranks second on the team.

He is one only six Power 5 players with multiple defensive touchdowns in 2014 (one interception, one fumble return). He ranks eighth nationally with three fumble recoveries, while his eight career interceptions are tied for the most among active non-DBs in the nation.

Nealy was among the 33 current and former Tech student-athletes graduating this weekend on the Flats.

No. 12 Georgia Tech faces No. 7 Mississippi State (10-2) in the 2014 Capital One Orange Bowl on New Year’s Eve in Miami. The game kicks at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN at Sun Life Stadium.
