MACOMB, Ill. - Western Illinois senior co-captain Andrew Robiskie (Fort Lauderdale, FL/Chagrin Falls {Ohio}) will represent the Leatherneck Football program in the upcoming East-West Shrine Game.

The longest-running All-Star event showcasing college football seniors will be held on Saturday (Jan. 19) at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. (central) and will be broadcast live on the NFL Network. The event benefits Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Robiskie is one of 11 offensive linemen listed on the roster for the West squad. He becomes the third Leatherneck in the last five years to play in the prestigious event.

Robiskie lettered from 2009-12, and last year was one of five co-captains on the team. He started 25 games in his career, the final three contests of the 2010 season and every game the past two years.

He stepped in as a starter at center during Western's playoff run of 2010 in which the Leathernecks won the regular season finale to clinch a postseason berth and won their opening game at Coastal Carolina before falling in the second round of the playoffs. He started games at both center and right guard during the 2011 season, and last fall made all 11 starts at center.

Robiskie has NFL ties in his family - his father Terry is an assistant coach with the Atlanta Falcons and his older brother Brian has played for three NFL teams during his four-year career, including six games last year with the Detroit Lions. Andrew's younger brother Kyle is a rising senior on the Leatherneck squad.
