Rock Springs’ Nick Blume broke two longstanding individual Shrine Bowl records on Saturday.

The South team, led by Blume and quarterback Austyn Matthews of Douglas, also set several unofficial team records despite losing 41-13 to the North in the annual all-star football game in Casper.

Blume broke two 30-year-old Shrine Bowl records with 168 receiving yards and 13 catches, breaking the mark set by Sheridan’s Chuck Johnson of 151 yards on eight catches from 1984.
