ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The 89th East-West Shrine game is officially in the books as the East beat the West 23-13, and an FCS prospect outplayed a Heisman finalist -- as he has all week.
Two quarterbacks on the East team, Eastern Illinois QB Jimmy Garoppolo and Northern Illinois QB Jordan Lynch, had two different types of games and a lot of it had to do with how they used their eyes.
Other than quick hitters, Garoppolo, who won the offensive MVP award, scanned the field and used his eyes to manipulate the coverage. He also kept his eyes downfield when the West flushed him out of the pocket.
