Gillmore will wear No. 86 for the South team during Saturday's Reese's Senior Bowl
Jan. 22, 2014
MOBILE, Ala. – Colorado State tight end Crockett Gillmore accepted an invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl on Tuesday morning, just three days after playing in the East-West Shrine Game in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Gillmore had already flown back to California, where he is training for the NFL Scouting Combine, before receiving a phone call on Tuesday at around 8 a.m. PT.
“I’m really excited because this is where I definitely want to be,” Gillmore said of the Senior Bowl.
Gillmore, who hauled in 47 receptions in 2013 -- the most by a CSU tight end since Keli McGregor’s 47 in 1984 -- and 577 receiving yards, the third-most in a single season by a Rams tight end, said the invitation was a pleasant surprise.
“I had actually just done a really hard leg workout on Monday,” Gillmore said. “I was told last week I wasn’t going to be invited, so I was getting ready for four weeks of intense workouts.”
Gillmore will wear No. 86 for the South team, and will be on the opposite team from Rams center Weston Richburg. This is the first time the Rams have had multiple representatives at the Senior Bowl since 1998 when Anthony Cesario, Jason Craft, Darran Hall, Mike Newell and Joey Porter were invited.
The 2014 Reese’s Senior Bowl will be played on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala. Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. MT and fans can watch the game on the NFL Network.
