OK, but what do the TOUCHDOWNERS really do? Annually the TOUCHDOWERS:
Help with presenting WEST Kansas Shrine Bowl players & coaches with their acceptance certificate to KSB. The certificate is presented at the KSB player’s school, in front of their peers, often with their family and couches in attendance. Families from different communities see Shriners, often for the first time, in a positive interaction with the community.
