Two head coaches who led their teams to state championships were named the head coaches for the 50th Shrine Bowl all-star football game.

McKay Young, who led Star Valley to the Class 3A championship in November, will lead the South team, while Kirk McLaughlin, whose Big Horn team won the Class 2A title, will be the head coach for the North.

The announcement was made Monday night in an email release from Frank Selby, the Wyoming Shrine Bowl’s executive director.

The North team had few troubles wrapping up a Shrine Bowl victory Saturday, jumping out to a 27-0 lead on its way to a 37-3 victory in the 49th edition of the annual all-star football game at Cheney Alumni Field in Casper.

Jackson’s Sadler Smith, the offensive MVP of the game, ran for the first touchdown of the game and also threw a touchdown for the North, which leads the all-time series 26-19-3.

Kelly Walsh’s Cam Burkett ran for two touchdowns, and Sheridan’s Carter McComb and Shoshoni’s Nathon Cousineau both had touchdown catches.

Worland’s Jorey Anderson capped the scoring for the North with a 25-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.

The South’s only points came off the foot of Torrington’s Chase Miller, who notched a 25-yard field goal of his own in the third quarter. By then, the South team trailed 27-3.

Smith threw for a game-high 105 yards and also topped all rushers with 54 yards as the North out-gained the South 411-213.

The South had three turnovers, but two were on strip-sacks late in the fourth quarter, each one by Campbell County’s Logan Dymond. Natrona’s Billy Brenton also had the game’s only interception.

Five South players completed passes as they gained 195 yards through the air. However, the South was limited to 18 rushing yards after sacks and a couple poor snaps hurt their totals.

Cody’s Daniel Gorman won defensive MVP honors.

Thunder Basin’s Trent Pikula picked up his first Shrine Bowl victory as a head coach.
