Roy Schuening of Pendleton and Tyler Hartsteen, John Barnett and James Williams of Hermiston were selected to play in the 2003 Les Schwab Bowl June. 28 at PGE park in Portland as part of the South squad.

The Les Schwab Bowl (formerly the Oregon Bowl and Shrine Bowl) features the top graduating seniors from around the state in a traditional battle on the gridiron between the Class 4A North and the South all-stars.

The South team features all-stars from the Midwestern, Valley, Southern, and Intermountain conferences. The North squad draws talent from the PIL, Metro, Mt. hood, Three Rivers and Pac-9 conferences.

The South team will be headed by Sheldon head coach Marty Johnson, who led his team to the state championship last season, while the North team will be directed by Lake Oswego head coach Steve Coury.

The game will feature the 4A offensive player of the year, Alex Brink of Sheldon, pitted against the 4A defensive player of the year, Andy Darkins of Lake Oswego.

Barnett was selected as a defensive back, Williams a linebacker and Schuening and Hartsteen to the offensive and defensive lineman list.

Schuening will also play with future teammate, Ryan Gunderson of Central Catholic. Both have signed to play with Oregon State University.

Of all the selections, 21 players have signed letters of intent to Division I college football programs, while many others have given verbal agreements.

This year marks the 56th anniversary of the North vs. South all-star game.
