It will be the first appearance for Doss and Western in the bowl.

ADDESA HONORED. Meade County linebacker Tyler Addesa was named the Sophomore LB MVP during last month’s Nashville Underclassmen Combine as well as being named to the All-Combine Team, which earned him a spot in the Ultimate 100 Camp in Indianapolis. Next month, Addesa is slated to attend a Top Prospect camp at the University of Oklahoma.
