Congratulations to five El Dorado Hills Jr. Trojans. Eighth-graders Bailey Smith, Jack Laing, Cameron Allie, Nate Otto and JT Eichorn were selected to be on the 2013 South Youth Shrine football team benefitting Shriners Hospital. Collectively they raised more than $4,000 for the hospital.
On Nov. 16 the California South team defeated the California North team 47-44 at Sacramento City College. The North team had been undefeated for 18 years. All five Jr. Trojans were then selected again to play in the California vs Florida Shrine Bowl Nov. 25 in Orlando, Fla. With their dedication and hard work, these five young men went to Florida to win with a team they practiced with for just a week. They were a huge part of the California team winning the championship against Florida 34-20.
