Reese’s Senior Bowl practices have been going on all week long and four Tigers have been putting their talent on display in front of many NFL coaches and scouts. The American team is coached by the Detroit Lions staff, which includes former LSU linebacker, Kelvin Sheppard. Sheppard played for the Tigers from 2007 to 2010 where he had 311 total tackles, 26 TFLs, and one interception.
Ed Ingram, Neil Farrell Jr., and Damone Clark all play for the American team and they have been making the most of their opportunity down in Mobile. All three of them earned an award as the top player at their position for the American team. NFLSU is alive and well with this next batch of Tigers, but they aren’t the only Tigers there.
Chasen Hines was a late addition to the Senior Bowl roster. Unlike his fellow Tigers, Hines will play for the National team. The National team is coached by the New York Jets coaching staff. Chasen Hines started 35 games for LSU during his four-year career from 2018 to 2021.
“It’s been a great week,” Clark said on Friday. “I’ve been able to meet a lot of people and practice each day against some of the best players in college football. I’ve learned a lot and it’s been a great experience.”
Clark said he will wear No. 18 in the game on Saturday and that he’s approaching the contest like any other game he played during his LSU days.
“I’m just going to go out there and play my game. I’m going to compete hard on each play, try to make those around me better and do whatever I can to help us win.”
