Mosley to play in Shrine game

Fort Dodge Senior High all-state football standout Trey Mosley, one of the most prolific receivers in Class 4A history, has been selected to participate in the 2018 Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star Classic.

The 46th annual game is at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls on July 21.

Mosley will play for the North squad. The Grand View University recruit finished his three-year varsity career ranked among the Top-15 all-time for both receptions (150) and yards (1,993) in the state’s largest class.

”This means a lot, knowing it’s for a good cause,” Mosley said. ”Only a few are selected to get this amazing opportunity to play (in the Shrine game).

”What I’m looking forward to most is the extra activities, getting to know the players and the Shrine kids.”

The 165-pound Mosley was a first team all-district and second team all-state honoree this past fall. He set a Dodger single-season record with 924 receiving yards, and tied the program mark for touchdowns with 11.

Mosley is also a three-year letterwinner and all-conference performer in both basketball and track.

Area standouts Cooper Lawson (Webster City) and Dominic Etherington (Algona) will be on the North team as well. Andy Jacobson of Algona will be an assistant.

St. Edmond cheerleaders MaKayla Allison and Ayrton Peterson will be performing at the game and involved in the festivities, as will Southeast Valley’s Hannah Vaughn, Rylee Walker, Shelby Hofbauer and Kate Wickwire, and East Sac County’s Macee Rehm. Mindy DeBaun and Megan Stumpf of Southeast Valley are coaches.

According to their website, the Iowa Shrine Bowl is an all-star football game between selected pre-college football athletes on each side of a north-south dividing line in Iowa. The players are selected by a process of nomination by coaches, balloting by state-wide sports media professionals, and official invitation from a representative of the Iowa Shrine Bowl.

The game brings honor and recognition to the players, their schools and their communities. It has also been an effective tool in raising money for The Shriner’s Hospital For Children.

To date, the Iowa Shrine Bowl has raised over $2,600,000 for The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children. Funds for The Shriner’s Hospitals For Children are developed by ticket sales, advertising in the Shrine Bowl program, merchandise sales, contributions and sponsorships.
