The Vermont Shrine Team, representing 36 of the finest senior football players in the state, was introduced last week and the only Addison County player on the roster is Middlebury Tiger's Sean Harrison.
The 56th Annual Maple Sugar Bowl game will be played on the MacLeay-Royce Field in Windsor on Aug. 1, with the Vermont Senior Stars taking on Senior Stars from New Hampshire.
Vermont high school head coaches nominated more than 100 Vermont seniors and head coach; Mike Hatt of Springfield chaired a committee of several coaches from all the divisions that narrowed down the list to the final 36 player roster.
The team met in March to review game plans and expectations and they will gear up for nothing less than double sessions at Kimball Union Academy in Meriden, N.H., July 22. Harrison will get a head start on preparations; he will be in Massachusetts early in July for The 2009 New England Elite Football Clinic.
Harrison, a captain and 3-year starter for Tigers will be attending The Holderness School in Plymouth, NH for a Post Grad year in the fall where he will be playing football, hockey and baseball.
