WASHINGTON, D.C. – The NFL Players Association is proud to announce that STEPHEN WARNER and MYLES WHITE of Louisiana Tech have committed to playing in the 2013 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. 

Warner is unique center from Ruston, La. who serves as the primary play caller for the Bulldogs, a notable difference from the traditional quarterback-run offense. He was named to the 2012 All-Western Athletic Conference First Team and to the Capital One Academic All-District First Team, and the Louisiana Sports Writers Association put the dynamic Bulldog on its All-Louisiana First Team.

White, who hails from Livonia, Mich., is an athletic wide receiver who was named to the 2012 All-Western Athletic Conference Second Team.

Warner and White are just two of the talented draft-eligible seniors competing in the all-star game on January 19 at The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills in Carson, Calif.

For player confirmations and news surrounding the game, follow @NFLPABowl on Twitter and on Facebook at Facebook.com/NFLPACollegiateBowl.

For one week preceding the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, participants will receive an in-depth introduction to the union – the primary resource for information on the business of football and how to succeed in the NFL and in post-football careers.

Pro-football players and coaching legends will work with the game's future stars, giving them first-hand insight on what it takes to win on and off of the field. Herm Edwards and Dick Vermeil will serve as the head coaches for the American and National Teams. Player Ambassadors for the game include former NFL players Terrell Davis, Hank Baskett, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Lorenzo Neal and Andre Reed.
