South coach Carlin expects physical Shrine Bowl

Nebraska's best senior high school football players will take the field one last time as prep athletes at the 55th Shrine Bowl at 2 p.m. Saturday at the University of Nebraska at Kearney's Foster Field.

South team head coach Bill Carlin of Adams Central said he's not changing his coaching philosophy for the all-star game. With that in mind, spectators can expect a physical attack from the South.

"We're going to run our power game still, and then we also have our spread attack. We're going to run both of those things. But if you like to see power, we're going to run it," Carlin said with a laugh.

Carlin took a package of offensive plays that he ran at Adams Central and figured out which ones would work best with the South team. This week, he has been working with his team at camp. Little by little, Carlin added to the number of plays the South team ran. He said the South players understand his offense and are running it well.
