Pair of Pirates chosen for Shrine game

Ryker Wenderoth and Bo Kelley

By John Heglie Special for the Leader

Mission Valley football players Ryker Wenderoth and Bo Kelley of the Polson Pirates were named to the 74th annual Montana East-West Shrine game.

Wenderoth was selected for the roster as cornerback, while Kelley was named as an alternate at linebacker.

Wenderoth earned dual all-state recognition as a leading receiver as well as defensive back for the Pirates. On defense this past season, Wenderoth tallied nine interceptions, 10 pass breakups and five fumble recoveries. He culminated three seasons of prep varsity action with over 1,200 career reception yards and more than 2,000 all purpose yards. This was the second all-conference acknowledgement for Wenderoth, an honorable mention at cornerback last year.
