Manhattan High’s Deante Burton will play for the West team, while Rock Creek’s Logan Miner will participate for the East team.
Rock Creek coach Mike Beam will participate as an assistant coach for the East team, aiding head coach Steve Buhler of Rossville.
The East squad will work to snap their 5-game losing streak in front of a state-wide television audience on Cox Kansas 22.
Each player selected has the opportunity to play in one of the highest regarded all-star games in the nation with a worthy cause. All players will be representing their high school, the Kansas Shrine Bowl and most importantly the Shriners Hospitals for Children and their patients. All proceeds from the game go to benefit the network of 22 hospitals.
