SHERIDAN — Five Sheridan County football players were announced with the North Shrine Bowl roster Monday afternoon.
Among the 36 players picked by the North coaching staff were Sheridan Broncs Justin Orum, Nick Gill and Daniel Sessions along with Big Horn’s Connor McCafferty and Colter Carzoli.
The Wyoming senior bowl invites the top players from last season to play a North-South game each June in Casper, with a week leading up to the game including practices and a trip to the Shriners Hospital.
The Broncs were 8-3 in 2013, led by playmakers Gill and Sessions, with Orum on the line, leading the second-ranked 4A offense.
Gill’s play at wide receiver coupled with his highlight reel special teams ability as a returner left him with 1,293 all-purpose yards and six touchdowns.
Sessions ran for 1,111 yards and 16 touchdowns as the backbone of Sheridan’s attack. He totaled 300 more yards receiving and three more scores.
Last week, Orum signed to play college football at Black Hills State University in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
The quarterback McCafferty’s stellar season and Carzoli’s both ways talent helped Big Horn to a 10-1 season and a 2A state championship last November.
McCafferty threw for 32 touchdowns and only four interceptions, while Carzoli led the Rams running attack, going for more than 900 yards on the ground.
After serving as head coach in a North win last year, Big Horn head coach Michael McGuire will be an assistant Gillette coach Vic Wilkerson.
The 41st edition of the game is scheduled for June 14 at Natrona County High School.
