PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University senior center Kenny Alfred has been selected to compete in the 85th annual East-West Shrine Game, it was announced recently. Alfred will join the West squad for the annual game that will be held Jan. 23, 2010 at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.

Alfred, from Gig Harbor, Wash., has started all 10 games for the Cougars this season, garnering WSU's most outstanding offensive player award six times. He is also on the Rimington Trophy Watch List for the third-straight year, given annually to the nation's most outstanding center. Last month Alfred was named to Phil Steele's Midseason All-Pacific-10 Conference second team.

Alfred is the 17th Cougar since 2000 to be selected to play in the Shrine Game, the most recent being former Cougar Jed Collins in 2007. It also marks the 28th straight season a Cougar senior has participated in a postseason all-star game since 1981.
