SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - The 42nd annual Iowa Shrine Bowl will be played this summer in Cedar Falls. It features the top high school seniors in the state, including 17 players from Siouxland.

Those players, their coaches and cheerleaders, were honored with a dinner Tuesday night at the Abu-Bekr Temple in Sioux City. The players are nominated by their coaches, and selected after voting by a state-wide media panel.

The Shrine Bowl has raised over $2.2 million for The Shriner's Hospitals For Children. It's an honor to be chosen to play and play for a good cause.

"It's bigger than just football," said Sioux City East senior Ronald Nash. "It's about helping the community and helping the kids and giving back and having fun while you're doing it. It's a great cause."

"Doing it for the kids and getting to visit all the kids at the Shrine hospital will be fun," said Ridge View senior Ryan Garthoff. "And just playing with these great athletes."

"It's going to be a great opportunity to make some memories with this great group of guys," said West Lyon senior Brandon Snyder.

Central Lyon/George-Little Rock's Toby Lorenzen is the Head Coach for the North team. The Iowa Shrine Bowl is Saturday, July 26th in the UNI-Dome.
