Going to camp; Kropp heads to prepare for Shrine Bowl

Scott City, Kan. (westernkansasnews.com)–It’s been a summer tradition in the state of Kansas since 1974. For 41 years, the Kansas Shrine Bowl has seen quite a few college and professional stars across the state featured in the game to benefit Shriners Hopsitals. Adding his name to the list of players to participate in the Shrine Bowl is Scott City’s Warren Kropp. Kropp will be heading to Salina for practice and will play in the 41st Annual Kansas Shrine Bowl Saturday, July 26 at 7 pm at Carnie-Smith Stadium in Pittsburg, on the campus of Pittsburg State University. 

This will be the sixth straight year that a Scott City Beaver has been selected to play, but only the third straight year a former Beaver will participate, which is the second longest streak in SCHS history. In fact, Kropp will be the 25 player in school history to play in the Shrine Bowl. 

Kropp reflects back on his career.

He is looking forward to carrying on the Scott City tradition.

What are his college plans after the Shrine Bowl?
