Shrine Camp: Day 2

69th Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl

The New Hampshire Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl team held its first practice in full pads Monday. The team is scheduled to have a defensive practice in full pads Tuesday morning. “The linemen are banging a little bit, but we’re not going to do a lot of full contact with the running backs,” New Hampshire coach Chris Childs said. “We’re not going to be taking kids down.”… This year’s Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl will be played Saturday (noon) at Castleton (Vt.) University.  …  Media Day for both teams will be held Tuesday at noon. New Hampshire is still scheduled to hold three practices Tuesday (9:15 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.).  … Childs said Londonderry’s Aidan Washington will get most of the snaps at quarterback. Lucas Gay, who played quarterback for Fall Mountain, is playing QB, but will also get playing time on defense. “The rest of the backfield right now is Nico Zaino (Winnacunnet), C.J. Childs (Lebanon), Seamus Murphy (Hanover) and  Nathan Ashby (Sanborn) is in that mix, too.” ….  C.J. Childs is the head coach’s son. … Sanborn’s Kevin Kolodziej, a 6-foot-5 quarterback, will play tight end and defensive end in the Shrine Game. … Chris Childs said there are eight or nine offensive linemen fighting for playing time, but Exeter’s Jack Worobel will start at center. … Milford’s Colin Gregg will handle the punting and place-kicking duties. … Chris Childs said Campbell defensive back Garrett Arnold has been a standout among the Division III and Division IV players on the roster. “He’s just doing a really good job defensively for us,” he said. … Tickets for Saturday’s game can be ordered online at
