Senior Alex Cate Named to Shrine Bowl Team

Senior Alex Cate, a captain on the Burlington High School Varsity Football team, has been selected to the 2017 Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl, the all-star game of Vermont football. The Shrine Bowl is an annual competition between the best players from Vermont and New Hampshire. Vermont players are selected by a committee of coaches each year based on their performance and skills in the past season. They are coached by the BFA Varsity football coach Bob Lockerby, who has had several exceptional seasons with his team in the past few years. The Shrine Bowl was first played in 1954 in New Hampshire. It was played in the granite state every year but one until 2009, when it was played in Windsor, Vt. for three years. After three years back in New Hampshire, the game has been hosted at Castleton University for the past two years, and will be played there this year on Aug. 5, starting at 5 p.m. Since the bowl’s creation, Vermont has only won 14 out of the 63 matchups. Vermont won last year in a 50-2 blowout victory.
