The former NFL wide receiver and longtime Shriners Children's ambassador joins elite club

TAMPA, Fla., Jan. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The East-West Shrine Bowl, college football's oldest all-star game, announced today that former NFL wide receiver and longtime Shriners Children's ambassador Nate Burleson will be inducted into the East-West Shrine Bowl Hall of Fame.

The East-West Shrine Bowl Hall of Fame is home to some of the greatest names ever to play the game. Burleson will join the elite group the week of February 2, 2023, during NFL Pro Bowl Week and East-West Shrine Bowl festivities. The Canadian-born football star is an alumnus of the 2003 East-West Shrine Bowl.

Burleson was an all-star wide receiver for the Nevada Wolf Pack at University of Nevada, Reno. That year, he was drafted in the third round by the Minnesota Vikings, and went on to play 11 years in the NFL as a wide receiver with the Vikings, Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions.

"Nate was a unanimous choice of our East-West Shrine Bowl committee this year as he has been such a strong ambassador for our game and Shriners Children's," said Bob Roller, Director of National Sports Management, Shriners Children's. "He has given back to the game following his outstanding professional career and has promoted and supported our cause on his national and international media platforms this past decade. We are thrilled to have Nate join us in Las Vegas and be enshrined in our Hall of Fame."
