Senior Ra'Shede Hageman has accepted an invitation to play in the 2014 Reese’s Senior Bowl. The game will take place on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
Hageman is one of 10 Big Ten seniors currently on the list of confirmed players. The All-Big Ten defensive tackle is Minnesota’s 36th Senior Bowl selection, and the first since offensive lineman Mark Setterstrom in 2006. He is also the Gophers’ first defensive player on the Senior Bowl roster since linemen Karon Riley and John Schlecht in 2001.
Hageman finished the regular season with 34 tackles, a team-high 11 tackles-for-loss, two sacks, one interception, eight pass breakups, one fumble recovery, one blocked field goal and one blocked extra point.
The Reese’s Senior Bowl, which divides invitees into North and South rosters, will kick off at 3 p.m. on Jan. 25. The game and preceding practices will be televised on NFL Network.
