Three Davidson Day players picked for Shrine Bowl game
by Staff Writer
DAVIDSON – Davidson Day wide receivers Evan Gates and Aaron Seward, and offensive tackle Schuyler Coleman have been selected to play in the Oasis All-Star Shrine Classic at Mooresville High on Nov. 24, Patriots coach Chad Grier said.
The game matches the top high school seniors from North Carolina independent schools against hose from South Carolina.
It will culminate a week of activities and a parade surrounding the game, which is played to raise money for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
The game, switched to Mooresville this season, has been played the past five years at various locations in Charlotte and in Salisbury the two years before that.
Each team’s coaching staff will pick 36 players. Four lake-area players participated last year – Davidson Day’s Tre Hunt and SouthLake Christian’s Taylor Jurney, Troy Lowden and Scott Richardson.
