ORLANDO – University of Hawai‘i center John Estes will compete in The Asset Protect East-West Shrine Game Saturday at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The all-star game will be televised live on ESPN2 at 3:00 p.m. ET (10:00 a.m. HT).Estes, the NCAA record holder with 54 career and consecutive starts, did not miss a game in his four-year career. In fact, the Stockton, Calif., native did not miss a down with the first unit due to injury or other reasons. The senior was one of six finalists for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the best center in college football, and one of five players in UH history to be named to the first-team all-WAC three times.Estes was also selected to Phil Steele’s All-America fourth team and is the 16th Warrior chosen to the play in the East-West Shrine Game since 1949. It also marks the fourth consecutive year, and eighth time in the last nine years, that UH will be represented at the game. Last year, defensive back Ryan Mouton represented the Warriors.
