The 39th annual Wyoming Shrine Bowl all-star football game is coming up quick — on June 9 in Casper, to be exact.

And with 38 years of history behind it, the Shrine Bowl has had a bunch of players sport the brown and white jerseys.

But which school has had the most Shrine Bowl players? And has a school ever had a player chosen for every Shrine Bowl?

Using the archived rosters available at the Shrine Bowl’s official site, I tallied up two lists: the total numbers of players per school and the number of years every school has had at least one player selected.

Natrona County, with 137 total players, has had more Shrine Bowl selections than any other school. Also, Natrona is one of just three schools to have at least one player selected for every Shrine Bowl game; Riverton and Sheridan are the only other schools that can claim that honor.

Not counting 2012’s selections, here are the tallies, both by total number of players selected and the number of years in which at least one player was chosen:
