looking forward to the game," said Siskowic, who is in Minneapolis,
Minn., training for the game and the upcoming NFL draft. "There
should be a lot of quality competition on the field, and it will be
good to get back in the pads. I will head down (to El Paso) about a
week before the game. They have everything scheduled out for us, and
we will have the opportunity to work out in front of scouts. It
should be a good event."
Siskowic will have the opportunity to play against his former
coach Mike Price, who will lead the Texas team and coached Siskowic
at Washington State before he transferred to Illinois State.
Siskowic will be coached by former NFL coach Buddy Ryan.

will feature senior all-stars who had their start or played at the
collegiate level in the state of Texas, pitted against top players
from around the nation.
As a selection for an all-star bowl, Siskowic joins Illinois
State teammates Laurent Robinson and Jake Weber, who will each be
playing in the 2007 Hula Bowl on Jan. 14. The three players in
postseason all-star games are the most in a single year of Redbird
football. Illinois State has also had six players selected to
participate in senior bowls over the last three seasons.
