Brett Rypien – Noteworthy
Brett Rypien displayed some of his pedigree in the East-West Shrine Game. Rypien and Easton Stick each threw a touchdown pass to help the West beat the East 21-17 on Saturday. Rypien, a Boise State product and nephew of Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien, was 10 of 14 for 134 yards. Scouts from a number of NFL teams talked with Rypien during a week of workouts preceding the game. “Overall it was a great week,” Rypien said. “I thought I came down here and did what I needed to do as far as what I wanted to show the scouts.”

Stick, from North Dakota State, completed 5 of 8 passes for 51 yards. Purdue’s David Blough had two touchdowns and 149 yards on 10-of-15 passing. “It was a good day,” Blough said. “I think we had a good opportunity to showcase what I can do, so that was special. I’m thankful for it all and I’m just glad I got to be a part of.” Rypien connected on a 22-yard scoring strike with LSU’s Nick Brossette during the first drive of the game. “Thought I was pretty accurate with the ball for the most part,” Rypien said. – AP College Football
