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
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
