Giroux, Butler lead NC team to Shrine Bowl win

Trojan seniors Noah Giroux and Matthew Butler lead the victorious North Carolina team to 17-10 win in the 80th Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas over South Carolina. Giroux hits 39-yard field goal with two PAT’s and Butler records a sack, QB hurry and disrupts the Sandlappers offense most of the day. NC records consecutive wins in the prestigious game for the first time in more than 10 years. Joining our players at the Shrine Bowl were Head Athletic Trainer Mike Guerrero, Team Physician Dr. Greg Pleasants, and senior sports medicine student Shelby Fulkerson. Head Coach Thurman Leach was named to the 2017 Shrine Bowl coaching staff after the game.
