The 63rd annual Nebraska Shrine Bowl took place this past weekend at Foster Field in Kearney, Nebraska, where the North team ended up defeating the South team 10-3 in a hard-nosed game.
The Gretna Dragons featured two seniors on the North team roster, wideout Trevor Marshall and offensive lineman Arian Garcia. The talented duo helped lead their squad to a gritty victory on Saturday night, June 5.
Marshall stands 6 feet, 2 inches and features well-rounded athletic ability and decent speed given his 210 pound frame. Garcia’s measurables were listed at 6 feet, 1 inch and 310 pounds as the powerful offensive lineman helped carve lanes for his tailbacks in the all-star game.
The North team also featured Gretna’s head coach as part of their coaching staff. Mike Kayl was selected to be an assistant for the 10-3 victory. North was led by head coach Kurt Frenzen from Columbus Lakeview. Frenzen has more than 20 years of head coaching experience.
The all-star contest, as entertaining as it may be, stands for a better cause than just showcasing student-athletes. All proceeds from the annual all-star game benefit Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.
