Jan. 6, 2009

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford seniors Pannel Egboh, Alex Fletcher and Wopamo Osaisai have accepted invitations to participate in two prestigious collegiate all-star games later this month.

All three players will be in El Paso, Tex. on January 31 for the Texas vs. The Nation All-Star Game, which pits top collegiate players originally from Texas or who play college football in Texas against top players from around the nation.

Kickoff is slated for 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time and the game will be televised live on CBS College Sports Network.

Egboh has also accepted an invitation to participate in the 84th East-West Shrine Game on January 17th at Robertson Stadium on the campus of the University of Houston. He will suit up for the West squad, which will be coached by former Alabama head coach Gene Stallings. Bobby Ross will head up the East team.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. Central Time and the game will be televised by ESPN 2.

Egboh started 34 of Stanford's 36 games dating back to the 2006 season and finished his career with 140 total tackles, including 84 solo efforts. This past season, the Mesquite, Tex. native was credited with 31 tackles (17 solo stops), 3.5 tackles-for-loss, 1.5 sacks and a fumble recovery. He also recorded his second career blocked kick when he deflected Washington State's first quarter field goal attempt.

Fletcher, who earned second team All-Pac-10 honors as a center, started all 12 games for the Cardinal and anchored an offensive line that paved the way for the second-highest single-season rushing total in school history. The Old Brookville, NY native made 44 starts during his Stanford career, including 24 at center.

Osaisai started all 12 games at right cornerback and finished tied for third on the team in total tackles with 67. The Pinole, Calif. native also added a career-high 3.5 tackles-for-loss, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. Osaisai earned Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Week honors after totaling a career-high 11 tackles (nine solo) and two pass breakups in Stanford's season-opening win over Oregon State.
