The game, which will be televised nationally on ESPN2 and carried on the Westwood One/CBS radio network, will be played January 22 at 7 p.m. on the Hawaiian island of Maui.

"Shephard will compete for the East team and is the first DePauw player to earn a spot in the Bowl game," the newspaper notes. "Shephard also learned recently that he earned All-America honors by the American Football Coaches Association for the second consecutive season. He was one of four Division III players to earn honors for two straight years ... In his four-year career at DePauw, Shephard finished as the school's all-time leader in kickoff return yards and kickoff return average. His 28.0 career return average ranks sixth all-time in Division III history."
