BAKER CITY - At the end of what was an East rout over a clearly overmatched West team in the 52nd Annual East-West Shrine Football game, Devin Burril was swamped by family and friends on the Baker High School field.
They had an easier time handling the Grant Union graduate than the West's offensive line, which double-teamed him most of the game - when it didn't, Burril made tackles.
The score was 48-6, and it wasn't that close. Burril was in on several big defensive plays, including a sack of a West quarterback for a safety.
Burril's grandfather, Delbert Burril; his father and mother, Jim and Debbie; his aunt, Terri Porter; and numerous friends made the trek to cheer him on during his final high school football game.
"It felt really good," Burril said after the game.
Burril, who last season was named the Prospector's most inspirational football player, plans to attend Siskiyou College this fall in Weed, Calif.
