2013 East-West Shrine Game: Colorado TE Nick Kasa receives invitation

Doug Pensinger

The tight end played only one full season at the position after switching from defensive end during his junior season.

Colorado tight end Nick Kasa received an invitation to play in the 2013 East-West Shrine Game in January, the school announced on Monday.

Kasa, 22, was a highly-recruited defensive end that didn't make a switch to the tight end position until late in his junior season. As a senior, Kasa recorded 25 receptions for 391 yards and three touchdowns. His efforts earned him a spot on the Mackey Award mid-season watch list, but he was not listed as one of the three finalists for the award recognizing the nation's top tight end.

The East-West Shrine Game is an annual college football all-star game that is more commonly used as an opportunity for NFL scouts and coaches to observe an incoming NFL Draft prospects. After a week of practice, which is considered by many to be a more important time that features scouts and coaches working hands on with players, the game is played on Jan. 19 and will be televised on NFL Network.
