The Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl annually pits the top high school football players from Vermont and New Hampshire against each other. It's a natural rivalry. Over the last few years, another natural rivalry has grown between the Norwich and Castleton football teams. The two teams play for the Maple Sap Bucket in the fall.
While the Vermont and New Hampshire teams prepare for Saturday's game at Castleton, thirteen players on the Vermont roster are headed to Castleton in the fall. Four members of the New Hampshire team are going to Norwich. What happens this Saturday will set the stage for future showdowns to come.
