McPherson High’s Garrett Larson continued the Bullpups’ streak of Shrine Bowl selections as he was named today to the West squad.

The game will be played July 26 at Pittsburg.

Larson, a 6-3 and 264-pound lineman, was named Class 4A All-State first team by both The Wichita Eagle and Topeka Capital-Journal. He also was first-team AVCTL both on offense and defense.

Larson becomes the seventh Bullpup in the last seven years to be selected to the game. He follows Collin French (2013), Jordan Hart (2012), Christian Ulsaker (2011), Joel Piper (2010), Zach Peterson (2009) and Tanner Hawkinson (2008).

Hesston’s Ryan Schadler, who had 42 touchdowns and more than 2,000 yards for the Swathers, also was selected to the West squad.
