Two Cowboys selected to play in East West Shrine Game
Two Crook County High School seniors have been selected to play in the annual East West Shrine Football Game, which will be held Saturday, Aug. 3, at Baker City High School.
Caleb Parrott has earned a spot on the team as a lineman, while Dominic Langley will be a wide receiver and an alternate at defensive back.
"I was real pleased," Parrott said. "It's a big honor and not a lot of people get the opportunity to go play. I'm real excited for it."
Langley was also pleased and honored.
"I saw that my teammate got it, and I was really happy for him, but I wanted to be on the team too," Langley said. "Then I got a letter, and I get to go, too. I'm really blessed and happy to receive the opportunity to go represent Crook County, and I get to go put the helmet on one more time. I'm going to do what I can when my number gets called."
Both Parrott and Langley will be representing the West team in the competition, which is for Class 1A, 2A, 3A and 4A graduating senior football players.
Parrott, who is committed to play football at Western Oregon University, said that he is expected to report for college football the day following the All-Star game.
"It will definitely be a good excuse for me to get in good shape," Parrott said.
Langley would also like to play college football and is hoping that his performance at the week of practice and the game might earn him a shot to play.
"I'm just going to give it my best shot and show them what I've got," Langley said. "Thank you to all my coaches and the people who supported me."
