LA GRANDE — A quartet of senior student-athletes on the Eastern Oregon University football team will get a chance to showcase their skills under the direction of head coach Tim Camp at the 21st Annual USA College Football Bowl.

Camp announced on Wednesday morning that All-American wide receiver Jace Billingsley, defensive back Byron Benson, defensive back Adam Bese and linebacker Kristopher Welch will compete inside the confines of Ted Wright Stadium in Savannah, Ga., amongst other seniors who had been recognized as 2015 Preseason All-Americans by USA College Football at NCAA, Division II, Division III, and NAIA programs, as well as those who have earned USA College Football Player of the Week honors.

In addition, Camp will be the head coach for the Admirals and will direct the four Mountaineers on the gridiron one last time. He is just two wins away from tallying the most victories by an EOU head coach in program history.

The bowl game will be part of a five-day, four-night 2016 MLK Holiday Football Festival that includes the inaugural USA High School Football Bowl.

Kickoff is set for Jan. 18 at 2 p.m.
