Football's Evan Davis To Play In The 2012 Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game Monday

Jan. 16, 2012

CINCINNATI - University of Cincinnati senior Evan Davis (Cincinnati, Ohio/Colerain) will take part in the 2012 Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game tonight at 8 p.m. ET inside Kino Stadium in Tuscon, Ariz.

Davis in on the West squad/Stripes and will wear No. 72.

The game will be televised live on FOX Sports Arizona and can be seen in Cincinnati on Time Warner channel 321 (requires purchase of the sports package).

Former Fresno State coach Pat Hill will lead the "Stripes" (West) team and former Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt will guide the "Stars" (East). Marrow, one of nine student-athletes from Mid-American Conference schools, will play for the "Stripes" team.

This is the second year for the game, which features some of the nation's top seniors. Last year the game was played in Tempe, AZ and was called the Eastham Energy College All-Star Game.

Davis started 13 games at center in 2011, helping lead the Bearcats to a 10-3 record, BIG EAST Conference Championship and a win in the 2011 AutoZone Liberty Bowl over Vanderbilt.

Davis and his offensive line mates paved the way for a 1,000-yard rusher for the second straight season, the first time a UC team has acheived that feat in 25 years.

Davis was one of three winners of the Jim Kelly Sr. Hold The Rope Award. The honor, presented annually at UC's postseason banquet, is given to those who best represent the ideals of former UC letterwinner, administrator, and coach Jim Kelly Sr.
