Crum and Worden Get Ready for Shrine Bowl [VIDEO]
Two former Laramie High School football standouts are playing in this week’s annual Shrine Bowl of Wyoming All-Star Football game in Casper.
All-state defensive end Garrett Worden and University of Wyoming bound offensive lineman Frank Crum will represent LHS in this year’s game. They will play for the South Team, which is led by Star Valley head coach McKay Young.
Both players visited with KOWB’s David Settle about participating in one last high school football game.
They will be the first two Plainsmen to play in the game since 2015 when former Plainsmen Danny Bradfield and Tristan Eickbush took part in the action. Laramie did not have a player selected in 2016, while two were chosen last year. An injury led to Carless Looney withdrawing beforehand, while an injury prevented Connor Beeston from playing in the game.
Worden will wear jersey No. 6, while Crum will be in his usual No. 61.
The South has lost five straight to the North (23-18-3) in the annual game that dates back to 1974. Kick-off is at 2 p.m. Saturday from Natrona County High School’s Cheney Alumni Field in Casper.
