Ten area stars head to Shrine Football Game this week

For some, it’s their final time in a football uniform. For others, it officially closes out their high school football careers.

A total of 10 area athletes will make the trip to Vermont for the week in preparation for the 65th annual New Hampshire-Vermont Maple Sugar Shrine football game on Saturday, August 4.

The two teams will practice together for the week in anticipation of the game.

Our region is well-represented in the game.

Nashua High School South sends a pair of athletes into the game, wide receiver Tony Agor and offensive lineman Kyle Reeder.

Division IV state champion Campbell High will have a pair of players in the game as well, running back Ryan Yanuszewski and linebacker Osten Anderson, while Hollis Brookline’s senior pair of lineman Garrett Moloney and high-flying wideout Matt Simco are both fired up for the competition.

Nashua North running back RJ Jenkins, Bishop Guertin lineman Calvin Basta, Milford High fullback Owen Clary and defensive back Jacob Donahue of Alvirne round out the region’s playing contingent.

Vermont won the 2017 game, 19-0, but New Hampshire still owns a 47-15-2 series advantage.
