The Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas is annually one of the best regional all-star games and the country, and the 2013 edition is shaping up to be one of the most talent-rich in recent years.
Plenty of the college football's current and former stars, including Georgia running back Todd Gurley, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore, have participated in the event, and once again organizers released loaded roster during an announcement on Thursday.
Highlighting the roster for the North Carolina squad are five-star running back Elijah Hood (Charlotte Catholic), who is committed to North Carolina, and five-star defensive end Kentavius Street (Greenville Rose), who has offers from schools all over the country.
Park, who is joined by Oklahoma State commit Mason Rudolph at quarterback on the South Carolina team, will have a pair of four-star weapons to throw to as well in Davidson and Kentucky commit Blake Bone. Kevin Crosby, a four-star South Carolina tight end commit, is also on the South Carolina roster.
The 80 players selected for the event came from a pool of over 400 players who submitted their information to be considered for the game.
The 77th annual Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas game will be played Saturday, Dec. 21 in Spartangburg, S.C. In addition to participating in a week of practice, players will also visit the local Shriners Hospital for Children, which proceeds from the game go to benefit.
