LEXINGTON, Ky. – University of Kentucky offensive lineman Chandler Burden and cornerback Anthony Mosley are set to play in the 2012 Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz., on Jan. 16.
The game, which is sponsored by Casino Del Sol along with the Tuscon Padres, will feature more than 90 senior college athletes from around the country. The players have been separated into two teams, the Stars and the Stripes with former Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt coaching the Stars, while former Fresno State coach Pat Hill will coach the Stripes. The teams will practice this week in Tucson leading up the game on Jan. 16. Both Burden and Mosley are on the Stars roster.
Mosley finished the 2011 season with 27 tackles, taking his career total to 63. The native of Ellenwood, Ga., played in all 12 games for UK, making 11 starts, while gathering one tackle for loss and five pass breakups on the season. Mosley, who became a household name after making the game-clinching interception against top-10 ranked South Carolina in 2010, had a career-high eight tackles against the Gamecocks in 2011. Mosley graduated in the spring of 2011 with a degree in community communications and leadership development and was working on his masters in political science last fall.
Burden, a native of Blue Ash, Ohio, helped anchor the Wildcats offensive front in 2011. Burden started at left tackle in all 12 games for UK after returning from an injury he sustained at the end of the 2010 season. For his career, Burden played in 43 games, making 26 starts. After playing two seasons on the defensive line, Burden showed his versatility by transitioning from defensive end to offensive tackle for the 2010 season.
The all-star game will be showed live on Fox Sports Arizona and may be carried on other Fox Sports affiliates. For more information on the game, visit www.casinodelsolallstargame.com.
