Shriners with L R Marcus Wall in green coat Emery Simmons and Mariana Blount A pair of Cumberland County high school football coaches were recently presented with their Shrine Bowl jackets. These jackets signify the honor of their being chosen to coach in this year’s Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas high school football all-star game on Saturday, Dec. 15. The game takes place at 1 p.m. at Wofford College’s Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg, South Carolina. 

In the left photo above, South View assistant coach Marcus Wall (center, in green) is shown getting his jacket while South View’s Emery Simmons (second from right) and Mariana Blount (far right) clap. Simmons was the lone Cumberland County football player picked for this year’s Shrine game. Blount will serve as a student athletic trainer at the game. 

   In the right photo, Westover head coach Ernest King is also shown being recognized by the Shriners at his team’s game with E.E. Smith last Friday. Like Wall, King will also serve as an assistant coach on this year’s North Carolina Shrine Bowl staff.
