Annual Wyoming Shrine Bowl All-Star Football Game is Saturday
The 49th annual Wyoming Shrine Bowl All-Star football game is Saturday in Casper.
It features the North versus the South from Cheney Alumni Field at Natrona County High School. The kick-off is at 2 p.m.
The South Team won last year’s game, 34-32. That snapped a seven-game losing skid in the series. Last year’s game set or tied five Wyoming Shrine Bowl records, according to wyoming-football.com.
The last time the South won back-to-back games was in 2006 and 2007.
The North leads the all-time series with 25 wins compared to 19 for the South. There have been three ties, which includes a weather-shortened game in 2009. The North’s seven-game win streak is the longest for either side in series history. The Wyoming Shrine Bowl began in 1974.
The North Team’s head coach is Trent Pikula from Thunder Basin. The South Team’s head coach is Mark Lenhardt of Rock Springs.
There are four total changes to the original rosters that were released on Feb. 2, 2022. Three players from the North Team and one from the South Team have opted not to play for various reasons.
The three replacement players for the North Team are Billy Brenton from Natrona County, Aaron Carver of Worland, and Wright’s Charlee Thompson. The one South Team replacement player is Kyle Logar from Douglas.
This game is for graduated seniors only. Following Saturday’s game, the Offensive and Defensive Players of the Game will be announced. There will also be two winners of the Mike Priest Award revealed at Friday’s banquet, one from the North Team and one from the South Team.
