Every year the twin states face off in all high school sports. This Saturday Vermont and New Hampshire meet again. The All Star football players are taking the field one last time for a good cause. The 66th Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl.
72 players were selected to take the field at Castleton University. The proceeds from the game will benefit Shriners Hospital for Children. The annual game helps provide care for children up to the age of 18.
The teams are putting rivalries aside to come together and help the children. Vermont’s head coach, Marty Richards led Mount Mansfield Union to its first state title in 2018.
Today the players had the opportunity to hear from families impacted by Shriners and sat down with patients as well.
One feeling each player had in common was excitement. Multiple players shared how honored they were to be invited to play in the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl Game.
