The Hi-Line will once again be well-represented in the annual Montana East-West Shrine football game this coming summer.
A pair of area athletes were selected to play on the East squad in the 68th Annual Shrine Game, which will be held in Laurel in July. Chinook senior Zach Molyneaux and Harlem senior Seth Adams were both named as offensive players for the East, which will be coached by Bozeman High, and former Blue Pony head coach Troy Purcell.
Molyneaux has played about every position possible for the Sugarbeeters in his four years on the gridiron. His best position has been running back, like his older brother Tyler, who was also a Shrine Game selection in 2010. Molyneaux (5-11, 170) was picked to the East squad as a wide receiver, but he’s gained over 1,000 yards rushing in three straight seasons for the Beeters, while also starring as a quarterback, defensive back and linebacker in his time in Chinook.
Adams is also a multiple-season, 1,000-yard rusher, and he had over 2,000 yards as junior for the Wildcats. Adams, who is a top-ranked wrestler for the powerful Harlem program, will play running back for the East this summer.
Havre High had two players named as alternates for the upcoming all-star game. Senior safety Trevor Jensen, a Class A All-State performer, and senior defensive tackle Kyle Duitsman were picked as alternates for the East squad.
Purcell will be coaching his third Shrine Game. He led Bozeman to the 2013 state AA title, and did it in 2010 as well. He also coached the East squad in the 2005 Shrine Game, following his Class A state championship season of 2004 in Havre.
The 2014 Shrine Game will be held July 19 in Laurel.
