After a record-breaking 2010, the offseason is in full swing for the Bluffton High School football team — but the honors seem to keep coming anyway.
The latest: Bobcats coach Ken Cribb has been selected as an assistant coach for the 75th Shrine Bowl Game, which will be played Dec. 17 at Gibbs Stadium, the home of Wofford College.
“Just good for our program — maybe it will get our kids a little more recognition,” Cribb said this afternoon. “I’m excited about the opportunity to get to coach that kind of talent.”
Each assistant coach is assigned a specific responsibility for the Shrine Bowl. Cribb said he doesn’t have his assignment yet — which will come from Chuck Jordan of Conway, the head coach of South Carolina's squad — but he expects to be assigned to the quarterbacks or running backs. Cribb coached against Jordan for six years while he was at region rival South Florence and said he knows him well.
It will be Cribb’s first time coaching in the Shrine Bowl. He coached the North/South All-Star Football Game in 2008 while he was at Stall.
