How the Shrine Bowl Games Began

In 1973 two Wyoming High School football coaches, Jerry Overton of Kelly Walsh High School, and Denny Brown of Byron High School started organizing an all star football game with the teams rosters being made up from Wyoming high school players who were gaduates of the current year.

Of the many obstacles they had to face to have this game come to fruition the most significant one was obtaining sponsorship for this game. They approached the Officers of the two Shrine Temples in Wyoming, Kalif in Sheridan and Korein in Rawlins. The Officers of the two Temples agreed to sponsor the annual game and thus the Shrine Bowl of Wyoming Inc., a non profit corporation was formed with the first annual game played in 1974.

The annual game is played the first week of June with a full weeks activities for the participants. The highlight of the week is the trip that the participants make to the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Salt Lake to visit the patients and physically see what the Shrine Organization does. For a video of the Salt Lake City Hospital visit for the 2012 game click here.

The weeks activities are at no cost to the participants and the profits of the game are sent to the Shriners Hospital to benefit the children who are not as fortunate as our participants.
