Josh Thompson selected for Iowa Shrine Bowl
Game benefits Shriners children’s hospitals
	 “They	 run	 so	 others	 may	 walk”	 is	
the	 motto	 for	 the	 2011	 Iowa	 Shrine	
Bowl.		This	is	most	certainly	true	in	
the	 case	 of	 Garner-Hayfield’s	 Josh	
Thompson.		Josh	has	been	selected	to	
participate	in	the	2011	Shrine	Bowl.		
	 Thompson	 has	 had	 much	 athletic	
success	in	his	high	school	career.		As	
an	 offensive	 wide	 receiver	 he	 has	
hauled	 in	 151	 receptions	 for	 2,173	
yards	and	28	touchdowns.		As	a	de-
fensive	 player,	 he	 has	 made	 99	 solo	
tackles,	63	assists	and	7	interceptions.	     	
His	athleticism	continues	on	the	bas-
ketball	 court	 and	 in	 track	 and	 field	
events.
	 It	 is	 his	 abilities	 that	 have	 made	
him	a	perfect	candidate	for	this	ben-
efit	game	in	which	he	will	be	able	to	
share	these	talents	to	raise	funds	for	
the	Shriners	hospitals	which	provide	
medical	 care	 for	 children	 suffering	
from	 orthopedic	 conditions,	 burns,	
spinal	cord	injuries	and	cleft	lip	and
