A number of local players were selected to the North Carolina roster for the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.

Six players from the immediate Triangle player were selected to the team, along with six other players from the region.

Leesville Road athlete Braxton Berrios was selected to the team as a wide receiver. The 5-foot-9 Berrios was selected as a wide receiver, although he plays numerous positions for the Pride on both sides of the ball. More Info     Football - Generic Graphic 2013 NC Shrine Bowl Roster

"It is a true honor to be considered one of the best in my state and picked to represent my state," Berrios said on Thursday.

Berrios is expected to announce his college commitment on Saturday. He is choosing between Kentucky, Miami, Oregon, South Carolina and Tennessee.

The wide receivers selected to the team from the Triangle are top-notch.

East Carolina recruit Curtis Burtson, a 6-foot-2 wide receiver from Middle Creek, was also selected to the all-star team. Burston has not played in a game this season due to a foot injury, but was a first team all-conference player last season in the Tri-9 4-A Conference.

"Being selected to the Shrine Bowl is an exciting feeling and it makes it even better that I get to play with all the top players in the area," Burston said. "I'm pumped about it and can't wait."

Hillside wide receiver Trevion Thompson was also selected to the team. At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Thompson has offers from Clemson, Duke, Florida, NC State, North Carolina, Ohio State, South Carolina and Virginia Tech, among others.

Another Durham wide receiver was also selected to the squad – Southern Durham's Maurice Trowell.

Trowell, who stands at 6-foot and 170 pounds, has verbally committed to NC State.

While most of the players selected to the Shrine Bowl from the Triangle are wide receivers, Cleveland running back Isaac Martin and Bunn kicker and punter Freeman Jones were also selected.

"I can't describe what an honor it is to be selected to the team and to represent North Carolina," Martin said.

Martin posted an impressive 2,186 rushing yards with 28 touchdowns last season, and has verbally committed to Coastal Carolina. He has other offers and is collecting interest from other schools. Slideshow     r0829acb Our lens on 2013 Shrine Bowl selections

Martin wants to use the Shrine Bowl as a platform to display his talents in front of a bigger audience.

"I've worked hard to show college coaches what I can do," he said. "There will be no denying the performance I will have in the Shrine Bowl."

Jones, who stands at 6-foot and 185 pounds, has committed to North Carolina. He is considered one of the top kickers in the state.

Other area players selected to the Shrine Bowl roster include Shaun Best (New Bern), Tobias Edge Campbell (Hoke County), Lamont Gallaird (Pine Forest), Trejon Monley (Scotland County), Cody Purdie (New Bern) and Kentavious Street (J.H. Rose).

40 players from North Carolina and 40 players from South Carolina were selected for the game.

Lee County football coach Burton Cates will lead the North Carolina squad. He will be assisted by Darryl Brown (Southern Guilford), Robert Cody (Plymouth), Blair Hardin (Freedom), Mark Little (West Columbus), Randy Raper (Northern Nash) and Phil Tate (South Point).

Tommy Brown of Orangeburg-Wilkinson will coach the South Carolina team.

This year's Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas will be held on Saturday, Dec. 21, at 1 p.m. in Spartanburg, S.C. Tickets are $15 pre-order and $20 at the gate.
