01/13/2013 - Two Sun Devil seniors will represent Arizona State once more in the collegiate careers as standouts Josh Hubner and Keelan Johnson have each accepted invitations to take part in the to 88th East-West Shrine Game. The annual postseason college football all-star game will be held January 19, 2013 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., kicking off at 4 p.m. EST and televised live on NFL Network.
Johnson, a senior captain for the 2012 squad, finished the year with 88 tackles - a mark that was good for second on the team. His five interceptions led the team and his .38 interceptions per game and was third in the conference and 17th in the nation this past season. His 6.77 tackles per contest were good for 13th in the conference this season.
His 13 passes defended were second behind Osahon Irabor's 14 and the most since Justin Tryon broke up 16 in 2007 and his eight career interceptions are tied for second since 2000. However, his forced fumble against Arizona's Matt Scott to turn the tides of the Territorial Cup will likely be the play that goes down as the biggest in his legacy. - Arizona State football
