The 2011 Shrine Bowl football game selections have been made. They are below. The game is July 30 in Hays this summer.
The teams are picked by the media — I was at the meeting a little over a week ago to help make the picks — and the coaches were also able to make two selections from their class. It’s a difficult process picking these players. It is only for graduated seniors, only one player per team and you’re picking by position.
Note: Bubba Starling is not the team. He was initially nominated, but since he won’t play in the game (I would suspect he’d be playing baseball after being drafted in the MLB June draft), they didn’t want to take a spot from someone else intially.
Congrats to all those who were selected.
