NORFOLK — Boone Central will be well represented after the Shrine Bowl, with James Fogleman, Parker Borer, Hank Hudson and Trent Patzel playing for the White Team in Saturday’s Northeast Nebraska All-Star Football Classic.

The White Team ultimately defeated the Red Team 21-14, and Fogleman was named the winning team’s offensive MVP.

“It was a little unexpected, but exciting because I’m not going to put the pads back on,” Fogle said. “It’s nice to go out with a bang.”

Fogleman had 98 yards passing and 35 yards on the ground, while also adding one touchdown through the air. Fogleman’s touchdown was a 48-yard strike that came just 48 seconds into the second quarter and gave White a 14-7 halftime lead.

“We wanted to score, we came into the game with a full squad, but we wanted to score,” Fogleman said. “We wanted to move the ball quickly, I took a shot and it worked, and that was a big change in the game for us.”

With White’s score remaining in the half, Red scored with 9:40 left in the second half, and White answered with 1:54 left in the first half on a 5-yard run from Hudson.

In the third, Borer got on the board on a one-yard rushing score to extend the White lead to 21-7 with 7:04 left in the third period, as all three of White’s touchdowns were scored by Boone Central players.

“It was amazing, it showed that the Boone Central boys do it best,” Borer said. “It’s great to be able to share those tries with my teammates, but everyone worked hard.”

Borer capped off his high school football career with a 115-yard rushing performance in a NEN victory.

“It’s an all-star game and it’s a huge honor to be known as one of the best in northeast Nebraska. This is my last high school game and it means a lot to be able to play alongside three of my teammates,” Borer said. “Football was one of the most important things in my life, I learned many things from it. Finishing my senior season 13-0 with a state title and winning it was a really great way to come out.”
