Five Jr. Miner football players and four Jr. Miner cheerleaders have all been selected to participate in the Sacramento (SYF) Youth Shrine Bowl, which benefits Shriners Hospitals for Children.

While this is an All Star game for the eighth-grade athletes in the league, its purpose is much greater than showcasing the athletic talents of these player and cheerleaders. The real purpose is to provide opportunities for athletes to come together with kids from across the region to learn teamwork, provide community service and raise money for a cause that is bigger than just playing a game.
