The 2013 Wyoming Shrine Bowl all-star football game raised $20,000 for Shrine Hospitals this year.
The game, played for the 40th time, helped raise money for 22 Shrine Hospitals across the country that provide care to children with special health care needs, Executive Director John Cundall said in a release.
The 2014 game will be played on June 14 in Casper.
Here is a quick look at the two records broken in the North’s 34-6 victory over the South in the 40th annual Shrine Bowl on Saturday — both by Natrona’s Brecken Biggs:
Total offense: Biggs, 358 yards (280 passing, 78 rushing); beat old record of 308 set by Natrona’s Corky Davis, 1975.
Touchdown passes: Biggs, 4; ties old record set by Upton’s Darin Schiller, 1984, and Wheatland’s Ward Anderson, 2011.
The North now leads the all-time series 19-18-3.
The 40th annual Shrine Bowl will kick off at 7 p.m. Saturday at Cheney Alumni Field in Casper. Here are some interesting notes to keep in mind as we head toward the game:
* The all-time record is tied at 18-18-3.
* Head coaches Michael McGuire (North, Big Horn) and Mark Bullington (South, Southeast) are both head coach for the second time. This is the fourth Shrine Bowl in which both head coaches have already been head coaches; it previously happened in 1992, 2000 and 2003. Also, in 1997, Gary Glenn and Todd Dayton co-coached the South team after each had already been a head coach in the Shrine Bowl.
* Both Natrona and Sheridan have players in the Shrine Bowl this year. Those two schools are the only ones in the state that have had at least one player in all 40 Shrine Bowls.
* Cheyenne South is represented in the Shrine Bowl for the first time by James Marshall.
* Cody doesn’t have a player in the Shrine Bowl for the first time since 2003.
* Three six-man players — Snake River’s Conner Lee and Dubois’ Cody Flynn and Jesse Hawk — will play in the Shrine Bowl. Five six-man players played in 2012; only two played in 2011 and 2010.
