Friday January 11, 2013Seniors Hammond and Hines Play In Second Annual Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game
Former Gator receiver Frankie Hammond, Jr. (Hollywood, Fla.) and running back Omarius Hines (Corsicana, Texas) both played in the second annual Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game Friday night at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz.
As Hines and Hammond were both the first Gators to ever participate in the game, both were also offensive starters for the East team. Stats for the game were not made available, but both players played multiple series throughout the contest.
The Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game is one of the first of many national college all-star games that will feature Gator players from this year's team and gives the opportunity to NFL hopefuls to display their talents in front of NFL scouts throughout the week of practice and the game.
The next college all-star game to feature Gators will be the East-West Shrine Game on Saturday, Jan. 19. Josh Evans, Caleb Sturgis and Lerentee McCray are all expected to take part in that game which will kick off at 4 p.m. and be aired on the NFL Network.
