Concordia High School graduate Keyan Miller has received an invitation to play in the 2022 Kansas Shrine Bowl, which will be played at 7 pm on Saturday, July 23rd at Pittsburg State University's Carnie Smith Stadium.

The Kansas Shrine Bowl is an all-star high school senior, East vs. West, football game put on each year in Kansas, by the Kansas Shrine.  The game has been played throughout Kansas each summer since 1974. 

Miller joins another recent Concordia High School graduate Dalton Owen, a signee to Emporia State University, on the West squad.  Concordia Head Football Coach Jordan Echer has been selected as an assistant coach for the West team for the 49th Annual Kansas Shrine Bowl.

Miller, who has signed to play football for the Fort Hays State Tigers, led the Concordia Panthers with 205 carries for 1,721 rushing yards, an average of 8.4 yards per carry, during his senior season.  He also led the Panthers with 23 rushing touchdowns in 2021.

His 3,352 career rushing yards rank as the second most all-time in Concordia history.

Last year, Keyan picked up 1st Team All-State, 1st Team All-District, and 1st Team All-League recognition.  He also was named the team's Offensive MVP of the Year and winner of the Annual Trevor Gennette Memorial Award.

Owen, a 6'3", 300 lbs. Lineman, helped lead Concordia's offensive unit that broke the school record for most points in a season with 419 (an average of 38.1 points per game), and most yards in a season with 4,209 (an average of 382.6 yards per game).  Ten different players combined to score 56 touchdowns for Concordia last fall.  The team posted an 8-3 record, the team's highest win total since 2014.

Owen picked up 1st Team All-State, 1st Team All-District, and 1st Team All-League recognition this year.  He was also named the recipient of the Concordia Football program's Keith Christensen Lineman Award.

Each player selected to compete in the 2022 Kansas Shrine Bowl has the opportunity to play in one of the most prominent all-star games in the nation and for a worthy cause.  All players will be representing their high school, the Kansas Shrine Bowl and most importantly the Shriners Hospitals for Children and their patients.  All proceeds from the game go to benefit the network of 22 hospitals.
