Stewart takes part in Shrine All-Star Football Game

Carlinville’s Brendan Stewart took part in the 39th annual Illinois High School Shrine All-Star Football Game July 13 on the campus of Illinois Wesleyan University.

Stewart was part of the West team, which ended up winning the contest.

Festivities began July 13 with the Shriners hosting a mini clinic from 9-11 a.m. at Advocate BroMenn Medical Center in Suite 100.

Players arrived in Bloomington for the event July 9.

The Illinois High School Shrine Game has started an alumni association and is asking former players to go to their website and complete an online form. Next year is the 40th anniversary and they will be inviting as many former players and coaches back to the event, held on July 12, 2014, in Bloomington.
