YOUTH FOOTBALL: Jr. Miners, Jr. Bruins shine in Shrine Bowl

The Union staff

With the help of several Junior Miners and Junior Bruins, the North Team took home the 2017 Sacramento Youth Football Shrine Bowl title with a 25-13 victory over the South Team Saturday at Hornet Stadium in Sacramento.

Participating for the Nevada Union Junior Miners was Gabe Baker (safety and tight end), Cassius Courtney (cornerback), Austin Slade (outside linebacker) and Cameron Cormack (wide receiver). The Junior Miners also had a representative on the Shrine Bowl cheer team in Cadence Barton. The Junior Bruins were well represented by Matthew Heinle (offensive line) and Jacob Vaughan (fullback).

Nevada Union's Baker had a big game, scoring two touchdowns and earning the game's Most Valuable Player award. Baker and Vaughan have both been selected to play for the California Shrine Team at an upcoming Shrine Bowl in Florida.

Participants in the Sacramento Youth Football Shrine Bowl raised more than $50,000 for the Shriners Childrens Hospital.
