KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - The 65th annual Nebraska Shrine Bowl kicks off Saturday at 6:00 p.m. from UNK’s Ron & Carol Cope Stadium. In preparation for the high school football all-star game, both the North and South teams have been practicing all week.

The North team has several standouts from the Tri-Cities and beyond. The Shrine Bowl is the longest-running high school all-star game in Nebraska.

Players said Thursday that their expectations have been exceeded so far this week.

“It’s been a great experience,” Northwest’s Victor Isele said. “It’s definitely more than I thought. I thought we’d just be practicing, going to eat, but it’s been a great time with the team. Practices have been pretty fun.”

“I thought we were coming down here to play a football game, an all-star game, but it’s more than just that learning about the Shriners,” Grand Island’s Colton Marsh added. “We’ve kind of done everything together this last week. Kind of feels like another brotherhood.”
