Humboldt High graduate Drew Thomas made the most of his final outing wearing his blue-colored Wildcat football helmet last weekend.
Thomas rushed for 54 yards and also passed for 129 yards and a touchdown to help lead the North Squad to a 30-13 victory over the South in the 45th annual Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star football game played last Saturday, July 29, inside the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls.
Thomas, who will join the University of Iowa football team this month as a walk-on, completed nine of 15 passes with one touchdown and one interception. He also carried the ball eight times as the North built up a 23-0 halftime lead.
Thomas played the first and third quarters of the game, splitting the signal-calling duties with Waterloo West and Iowa State recruit Devon Moore, who played in the second and fourth quarters.
Thomas hooked up with Slade Fuentes of Lake Mills on a 55-yard touchdown pass play in the third quarter and Moore had a touchdown pass to Kody Case of South Central Calhoun.
Case was named the Most Valuable Player on offense while Dike-New Hartford lineman Ben Latusek was named the defensive MVP.
Humboldt coach Greg Thomas served as head coach of the North. Proceeds go to Shriners Hospitals of Children. There are 19 orthopedic hospitals in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Hawaii and three burn centers in the United States and one unit that treats all types of cases.
