Benson, Bushman To Play In Indigenous Bowl
Wolf Point High School senior football players Juliun Benson and Gaige Bushman have each been selected to play in the 7G Foundation 2022 Indigenous Bowl.
The game and clinic will be held on Dec. 7-11, in Minneapolis.
The Indigenous Bowl is the premier event for the 7G Foundation to further the goal of molding the next 7 generations of Native leaders through education, athletics, culture and real-world support. The first Indigenous Bowl was played in 2017.
The game is open to high school seniors of American Indian descent who have not yet enrolled full-time in college.
The event is an opportunity for young, Native athletes to showcase their talent on the football field, work with coaches and mentors, and develop the skills necessary to move to the next level of competition.
Participants in the Indigenous Bowl are chosen to compete in the game through an application process, which is open to members of federally- recognized tribes across the country.
