Jr. Trojan cheerleaders and football players selected for Shrine Bowl
Three Jr. Trojan cheerleaders and three Jr. Trojan football players have been nominated to participate in the 2009 Sacramento region East-West Shrine Bowl. Midget cheerleaders Bailey Geyer, Hannah Vicario, and Courtney Callaway were nominated based upon their hard work and strong values. The girls are also considerate, compassionate and have outstanding leadership skills. Kyler Flynn, Colton Giorgi and Josh Wellman were nominated based on their skills and experience in the Jr. Trojan program, as well as their off-the-field leadership. The coaches nominated the outstanding offensive player, outstanding defensive player and the outstanding lineman. Considered role models amongst their peers and great athletes, students and citizens by their coaches, playing in the East-West Shrine Bowl is an honor. Each youth football and cheer team in the Sacramento region (there are over 30 teams -- from Colfax to West Sacramento, to Granite Bay, Rocklin, Sacramento and El Dorado Hills) nominates one to three players and cheerleaders to participate in the Shrine Bowl. The Shrine Bowl is a fundraiser for the Sacramento Shriner’s Hospital for Children and the Sierra Youth Football program. Each cheerleader and football player is required to raise money to support the Shriner’s Hospital and take a tour of the hospital to educate themselves on what and whom they are playing and cheerleading for. The winner of this year’s Sacramento Region East-West Shrine Bowl (played after the UCD-Sac State Causeway Classic on Nov. 21) will have an opportunity to go to Orlando, Fla. in December to play the winner of the Orlando Region East-West Shrine Bowl. All cheerleaders will be able to go to Orlando to cheer the Super-Shrine Bowl. The Jr. Trojans organization, friends, family, and the community of El Dorado Hills wish to congratulate Bailey, Hannah, Courtney, Kyler, Colton, and Josh.
