BRANDON — Otter Valley Union High School senior Justin Owen has been added to the Vermont roster for the Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl football game, said OV activities director Steve Keith this week.
Owen saw action for OV as a defensive back, running back and quarterback this past fall. He joins Mount Abraham’s Wade Steele, a lineman who attends Vergennes, and Middlebury lineman Walter Odell as local representatives on Vermont’s Shrine football team.
Also expected to play is Burr & Burton quarterback Jake Stalcup, who has announced he will attend Middlebury College this fall. Burr & Burton head coach Jason Thomas, a former Middlebury College assistant, will coach the Vermont team.
The annual game vs. New Hampshire will be played this year at Dartmouth College’s Memorial Field on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 5:30 p.m.
