Mike Gilloon | Wednesday, January 18, 2006

The season isn’t over just yet for several Notre Dame football players. The University’s athletic Web site announced Monday that five departing Irish seniors – kicker D.J. Fitzpatrick, wide receiver Maurice Stovall, offensive lineman Dan Stevenson and linebackers Corey Mays and Brandon Hoyte – have been selected to play in postseason all-star games taking place during the next two weeks.

Fitzpatrick and Mays will participate for the East team in the Hula Bowl Saturday at 7 p.m. in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Hoyte and Stevenson will play on the same day at 4 p.m. in the East-West Shrine game in San Antonio, Texas. The pair will suit up for the East squad as well.

Stovall will head south to Mobile, Ala., to play in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 28 at 4 p.m.
