Dominique Brown stands out in Shrine Game

Former University of Louisville running back Dominique Brown scored the only touchdown in the 90th edition of the Shrine Game on Saturday in St. Petersburg, Fla. Five other former U of L players were at Tropicana Field for the game.

Former University of Louisville running back Dominique Brown had a solid week of practice for the East squad at the 90th Shrine Bowl.

And then on Saturday was a standout in the actual game.

Brown rushed 19 times for 69 yards and scored the lone TD of the game on a 1-yard run as the East whipped the West 19-3 at Tropicana Field in St. Patersburg, Fla.

Brown was one of six former U of L players in the game.

The starting running back to begin the season, Brown finished the season with 96 carries for 378 yards and four touchdowns. He started out as a quarterback at U of L but finished with 1,795 rushing yards and 16 TDs for his career.

Brown is hoping to make a strong showing in workouts and at U of L's pro day in March in order to be a late-round draft pick. He's projected now as a free agent signee.

Another impressive performance from a former U of L star came from guard John Miller, who was called "the most impressive interior lineman," at the game by NFL.com.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound Miller is now being projected as a third or fourth-round draft pick by most NFL Draft experts.

Offensive lineman Jamon Brown was also solid per NFL sources at the game, while tight end Gerald Christian didn't play because of an injury.

Defensive standouts B.J. Dubouse and Deiontrez Mount also played in the game.
