BLOOMINGTON (WCIA) — Twenty-seven of the area’s best senior football players are getting one last chance to strap on the pads as high schoolers this week, playing in the 48th annual Shrine Game. The all-star game benefits the Shriners Hospital with five days full of activities, practice and community service for the athletes and coaches.

“It’s great, it’s exciting to be out here with the best of the best,” former Centennial running back Braylon Peacock said. “I feel like I earned this and I feel like I’m supposed to be here. I’m just going to come out here and have fun.”

“It’s just a great honor,” former Monticello quarterback Joey Sprinkle said. “There’s a lot of athlete’s that didn’t get to come here. It’s a great honor to be here and able to play.”

“I think a lot of people see it’s their dream to get selected as an All-Star, but it means more than just another game,” former Mahomet-Seymour receiver Dream Eagle said. “It’s about the whole time with the Shriners. It’s just the bigger picture.”

The Shrine Game is set for Saturday at 11 a.m. at Tucci Stadium in Bloomington on the Illinois Wesleyan campus.
