The 46th annual Shrine Bowl took place Saturday evening in Dodge City. Wellington's DeAndre Washington was a member of the "WEST" squad, the 1st Wellington Crusader to be selected for the Shrine Bowl since Tim Lira in 2003.DeAndre and his teammates had to be all smiles at the end of 4, pulling out a 26-7 victory over the East squad, in front of a large crowd at Dodge's Memorial Stadium. Congratulations to DeAndre - it sounds like the overall experience for all the participants will be in their memories for a lifetime!
During the halftime of the Girls Varsity Game Friday,another exciting event, Senior DeAndre Washington received his official invitation to this coming June’s SHRINE BOWL in Dodge City. Many SHRINERS were on hand (no go-carts thankfully) and made the invitational presentation to DeAndre with his family and fans looking on! Congrats DeAndre – that is a great honor, it’s been 15 years since the IRONDUKES last had a participant in the SHRINE BOWL. Way to represent young man!
