McPherson High will now have two representatives in the Kansas Shrine Bowl Football Game on July 29 in El Dorado.

Bullpup coach Jace Pavlovich announced Tuesday that All-AVCTL Division III offensive lineman Jared Ruth has been added to the West team as a replacement for Wichita Northwest lineman Joey Gilbertson, who is expected to make the two-deep for the Kansas Jayhawks this fall.

Ruth will be joining Bullpup teammate Jack Reifschneider in the game, which will be played at Butler County Community College. Reifschneider is a receiver and defensive back and can also return punts and kickoffs.
