MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - Seniors Cleannord Saintil and Keon Raymond have accepted an invitation to play in the inaugural Magnolia Gridiron Classic All-Star Game. The game will take place on December 24 in Jackson, Mississippi at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Saintil and Raymond join Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year Jeff Littlejohn as Blue Raiders who will be competing in postseason play. Littlejohn is participating in the Las Vegas All-American Classic on January 14.

Saintil, who recently earned first team all-conference honors, led the Sun Belt this past season with 66 receptions for 884 yards and three touchdowns. The Naples, Fla., native ended his career with 106 catches which goes down as the most by a two-year player in school history.

Raymond also enjoyed a career season for the Blue Raiders. The St. Louis, Mo., native had a personal-best 50 tackles to go along with two interceptions, two forced fumbles, and seven pass breakups.

Both players will arrive in Jackson on December 20 to begin testing and practice.
