KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Some of the best prep football players from across the state will show off their talents in the 63rd Annual Nebraska Shrine Bowl. It will mark the last high school football game for those involved and their last game wearing their hometown school’s helmet.

“I’ve been loyal and I’ve loved Northwest ever since I got there and ever since I was a little kid,” Northwest graduate Parker Janky said. “So to be able to not only represent the football but the community and also our school it’s been awesome and I’ve loved every moment of it.”

“It’s such a honor because not a lot of people have the opportunity to do something like this,” Ord graduate Kelen Meyer said. “So, just thankful for Coach Franzen for giving me the opportunity to come down and play.”

Both Janky and Meyer are playing football at the next level. Meyer is walking-on at Nebraska and Janky is going to Fort Hays State.

The Shrine Bowl kicks-off tomorrow at Ron & Carol Cope Stadium at 6 p.m.

Rosters for the game can be found here.
