Stark Football Players Selected for NH Shrine Sugar Bowl Team


John Stark football players Zachary Feudner and Jacob Sawyer have been selected for the New Hampshire team to play the 62nd Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, considered one of the premier all-star high school football games in the entire country. The game is played between two all-star teams of high school graduated seniors from New Hampshire and Vermont.  Screening committees of eight coaches chaired by Shrine head coaches select the teams. The only other John Stark student ever named to the Maple Sugar Bowl Team was Tyler Nicol in 2004. This year’s Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl will be played at Castleton State College in Vermont on August 1 at 5:30 PM. Tickets will be $15 with all proceeds to benefit Shrine Hospitals in the Northeast.
