— Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell will get one more game in a Duke helmet regardless of the outcome in the bowl game. The senior has accepted an invitation to play in the 89th annual East-West Shrine Game.

The game will be played Saturday, Jan. 18 at 4 p.m. at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

A 6-foot-0, 185-pound native of Waxhaw, N.C., Cockrell has played in and started 48 games at Duke in the defensive secondary. A two-time first team All-ACC selection, he has amassed 227 tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss, 41 pass breakups and 12 interceptions. Cockrell is Duke’s all-time leader in total passes defended with 53.

Cockrell, a two-year team captain, has helped the Blue Devils to a school-record 10 wins this season along with the ACC Coastal Division championship and upcoming berth in the Chick-fil-A Bowl against Texas A&M. He becomes the 37th player in Duke history to accept an invitation to participate in the East-West Shrine Game.
