NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State University redshirt senior defensive lineman De’Shaan Dixon has received an invitation to participate in the 97th East-West Shrine Bowl on Feb. 3, 2022.

This season, Dixon has totaled 34 tackles, seven for loss, including 6.5 sacks, four quarterback hurries and three pass breakups. Dixon, a preseason first-team All-MEAC selection, currently leads the MEAC in sacks.
Norfolk State is 6-2 heading into this week’s game at North Carolina Central.
