By Travis Lazarczyk..HEBRON -- Every high school football team in the state has a player invited to play in the Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl.

Steve Solloway: After all these years, teammates for a day

Posted: July 18th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

HEBRON — They first met as 8-year-old boys with a lot of time on their hands. Alex Stilphen's dad had to return video of high school football games to Cam Cooper's dad at Bonny Eagle High. An exchange that might have ended after five minutes lasted more than two hours. Greg Stilphen, the Deering High football coach and Kevin Cooper, his counterpart at Bonny Eagle, started picking each other's brains and lost track of time. Their sons amused themselves as kids do. What they did that day can't be recalled. Just the memory that neither one faced a timeout when they got home.

Sport: Football

Posted: July 18th, 2012 by Tom Nolette

By Travis Lazarczyk..HEBRON -- One of the constants of the Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl's first 22 years is the friendships made when high school rivalries are set aside. As the teams prepare for Saturday's 23rd game at Hebron Academy, that's once again the case. Mt. Blue High School running back Izaiha Tracy was prepared to dislike the players from Leavitt, the team that beat Tracy's Cougars 22-21 in overtime for the Class B East title.
