Wearing his blue-colored Humboldt football helmet one last time, Drew Thomas made the most of it playing in the 45th annual Iowa Shrine Bowl All-Star game on July 29 in Cedar Falls.
Thomas played quarterback in the first and third quarters for the North squad and helped his teammates to a 30-13 victory over the South in the annual contest, which raises funds for Shriners hospitals around the United States.
Thomas rushed for 54 yards and completed nine of 15 passes with one touchdown (55-yards) and one interception.
“It was just an amazing experience. I felt really blessed to be able to be a part of that game. It is for a great cause, raising money for the kids in Shriners hospitals. I got to meet a lot of awesome guys…a couple future teammates and a couple future opponents,” Drew said. “It was a really good time.”
“It was fun to get the pads back on. It is time for football again,” Drew said.
