Monday, December 02, 2013 - by Special to Chattanoogan.com

HOOVER, Ala. – Tennessee senior offensive lineman Zach Fulton will play in the East-West Shrine game on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 4 p.m. in St.Petersburg, Fla.

The game will be broadcast live on the NFL Network.

Fulton is the first Vol from the 2013 senior class to be invited to a postseason all-star game and will be the 43rd Vol in history to take part in the game, the first since Tauren Poole did so in 2012.

Fulton started all 12 games at right guard in 2013 and started 40 of his final 43 career games at the position.

Fulton was a part of the Vols offensive line that blocked for 2,261 yards this season, the most for Tennessee since 2004 and the second-most since 1999.

Over the course of the season, the Vols offensive line helped UT to five 200-yard rushing games and a 1,000-yard rusher in Rajion Neal, the first 1,000 yard rusher since Poole in 2010.
