Oregon State cornerback Rashaad Reynolds has accepted an invitation to play in the 89th East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 18 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Reynolds is coming off one of the top games of his career, returning two fumbles for touchdowns in the Beavers’ 38-23 win over Boise State in the Hawaii Bowl.

Reynolds tied Steven Nelson for the team lead in interceptions with six. Reynolds had 61 total tackles and a sack.

OSU has been represented by nearly 100 players since the game’s founding in the 1920s. The most recent participants were cornerback Brandon Hardin in 2012, center Alex Linnenkohl in 2011 and linebacker Keaton Kristick in 2009.

While the teams are divided by East and West, the players come together for the beneficiary of the event, Shriners Hospitals for Children, an international pediatric specialty health-care system.

The game will be televised on the NFL Network at 1 p.m.
