Rosters for the 80th annual Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas were released Monday afternoon and five locals made the cut for South Carolina’s squad.

Northwestern duo Gage Moloney (QB) and Jerry Howard (running back), South Pointe pair Ken’darius Fredrick (defensive back) and Bryson Cooper (linebacker) and Rock Hill’s Kendrick Hicks (linebacker) were selected by South Carolina’s coaching staff.

This is the fourth year in a row that Northwestern has had at least two players selected. Corey Seargent and Mason Rudolph were picked in 2013, Dupree Hart and Chris Bouyer went in 2014 and Trae’von Hinton and Miles Corpening represented the Trojans last December.

Hicks is Rock Hill’s first Shrine Bowl selection since 2011, when Mitchell Jeter was selected.

South Carolina’s coach staff is led by Newberry coach Phil Strickland. Leonard Johnson (Lake Marion), Charles Patterson (Hanahan), Michael Mayer (Indian Land), Daryl King (Lake View), Rick Scott (Spartanburg High) and Trey Wallace (Airport) are the head and assistant coaches working with Strickland.

North Carolina’s head coach is Murphy High’s David Gentry. Kevin Gellespre (Page), David Lovette (Grays Creek), Ken Avent Jr. (James Kenan), Steve Breitenstein (Watauga) and Tim Carson (Weddington) will assist Gentry.

This year’s game is set for Saturday, Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. at Wofford College’s Gibbs Stadium in Spartanburg.
