The Eastside Catholic football team will play in the first annual Burger King State Champions Bowl Series on Dec. 27 in Boca Raton, Fla.
The Crusaders, which were contacted by the bowl officials after beating Bellevue in the Class 3A state title game, will play a team from Florida to be announced on Dec. 16.
“It’s such a great opportunity for our kids to experience something that is so rare,” Eastside Catholic coach Jeremy Thielbahr said. “Go to Florida, one more week for our kids to practice together and be together.”
The Crusaders will practice next week and then fly to Florida on Dec. 25.
Bothell will also be participating in the bowl series.
