    Four players from the region have been selected to play in the 24th annual Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic, featuring the best seniors from Eastern Maine in Classes A, B and C taking on their counterparts from the West, to be played

on Saturday, July 20 at 4 p.m. at Waterhouse Field at Biddeford High School.
    Chosen for the game are Foxcroft Academy’s Donald Boyer, Louis LaFache and Ryan Rebar as well as Andrew Levensalor of Dexter Regional High School. Foxcroft Head Coach Danny White will be on the coaching staff for the East squad.

    The Lobster Bowl’s Eastern Maine cheering team will also have local representation as Aaliyah Williams of Dexter Regional High School was named to the squad.
    The players will take part in a week-long training camp at Hebron Academy in Oxford County before the July 20 game. Williams will join her cheering teammates at a pre-game camp held at Central Maine Community College in Auburn.
    The Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic, played each summer at the end of July is entering its 24th year for the Kora Shriners. To date, well over 1,500 players, 275 coaches and 350 cheerleaders have participated in the game and helped raise over $340, 000 in support of the Shriners Hospitals.




     All benefits raised from the Lobster Bowl go toward supporting the 22 Shrine Hospitals for Children across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The Lobster Bowl  raises money and helps to make the public aware of the expert orthopedic and burn care facilities available, at no cost, to children who desperately need this specialized care.     The Lobster Bowl participants are high school seniors who have just graduated and are about to enter college. They are nominated to play in the prestigious game by their coaches and selected by a committee from the Maine Athletics Association. For more information, please go to
    The 2013 Lobster Bowl kicks off at 4 p.m., with gates opening at 11 a.m. Last year the West won 48-24, to extend the region’s game lead to 17-6.
