West Virginia center Tyler Orlosky accepted an invitation to the 2017 Reese’s Senior Bowl. On Monday, he was officially added to the game’s roster.

Orlosky’s senior year was quite an exciting ride with the Mountaineers. He was the anchor for a unit that ranked 4th in the Big 12 in passing, 2nd in rushing, and 18th nationally in rushing.

Not only was he a key cog on the offensive line, Orlosky also picked up a handful of individual awards. He was named first-team All-Big 12, made the USA Today second-team, and was one of three finalists for the Rimington Trophy – given to the best center in college football.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl will be a perfect final stop for Orlosky before pursuing the ultimate football dream – the NFL. Here’s a list of former Senior Bowl attendees who made their dream a reality. Just last year, 23 players made the Pro Bowl that played in the Reese’s Senior Bowl while they were in college, including six offensive lineman.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl isn’t the only game left on Orlosky’s schedule, though; the West Virginia Mountaineers will face the Miami Hurricanes on Dec. 28 in Orlando, Fla. Orlosky will make his final college football appearance on Jan. 28, 2017 during the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
