Hampton named to Shrine Bowl

There wasn’t a Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas football game played in December, but the North Carolina and South Carolina teams were selected.

Davie was represented on the NC team by Nate Hampton, the record-setting quarterback who graduated from Davie after the first semester and will miss his senior season as he’s early enrolled at Liberty University.

Hampton, who completed 20 of 33 passes for 253 yards on average during Davie’s 7-6 season in 2019, became the 14th Davie player to make the Shrine Bowl.
