Practice starts today (June 7th) in Casper for the annual Shrine Bowl football game.
The contest is an all-star game between the North and the South, but also serves as a fundraiser for the Shriner’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Representing the north are Sheridan High School players Quinton Mangus, Kyle Meinecke and Justin Vela.
Winfield Loomis from Big Horn is also on the team, and Rams Coach Kirk McLaughlin is an assistant coach.
Buffalo also has one player on the team and that would be Hyrum Hatch.
Both teams will practice all week and the game is scheduled to be played this Saturday at Natrona County High School starting at 1pm.
The North has won the last 7 games and is 10-1-1 in the last 12 contests.
Last year’s game was not played due to concerns about the COVID pandemic, and because of those concerns, the players will not make their annual trip to the Shriner’s Hospital this week, but the game is still on.
