Shrine Camp: Day 3

69th Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl

New Hampshire coach Chris Childs didn’t hesitate Tuesday when he was asked to identify the strength of the New Hampshire Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl team. “I think the strength of the team is definitely our offensive line,” he said. “We have nine guys, 10 guys who are really good up front. Our offensive and defensive linemen tend to be more Division I and Division II (high school) kids.” … This year’s Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl will be played Saturday (noon) at Castleton (Vt.) University. New Hampshire will be the home team Saturday and will wear red shirts and white pants. … Childs said Sanborn’s Kevin Kolodziej and Lebanon’s Cam Davio will likely start at defensive end. … Rutland’s Slade Postemski, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver/defensive back, was named Vermont’s Gatorade Player of the Year last season and is on the Vermont roster. He caught 46 passes for 776 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, when Rutland (8-1) reached the Division I state semifinals. He also recorded 32 tackles and intercepted four passes, returning one for a score. Postemski is also expected to handle the punting duties for Vermont. … Childs said Wednesday will likely be the final day New Hampshire practices in full pads. … “I think we’re at a point now where we’re just trying to make sure we have depth at the right spots,” he said. “Just trying to figure out if we need to move a kid over to get him more reps at fullback or whatever. Just want to make sure we have everything covered.” … Tickets for Saturday’s game can be ordered online at
