CEDAR FALLS — For Spencer Daufeldt, playing football at the University of Iowa was always the plan.

Before he reports to the Hawkeyes this fall, however, the 6-foot-1, 300-pound defensive lineman will wear the West Liberty High School helmet one final time in the 47th annual Iowa Shrine Bowl, the all-star football game that has raised $2.6 million to date for The Shriner’s Hospitals for Children.

“It is a great honor,” said Daufeldt, one of 17 area preps that will play in the 4 p.m. game Saturday at the UNI-Dome. “Not many people get to come up here and play in this game. Just honored that they would have me up here to play. I have had a great time here.”

Daufeldt was a Class 2A first team all-state selection last season for the Comets, who reached the state semifinals for the first time since 1987. He turned down a scholarship offer from Division-II Minnesota State for a preferred walk-on shot at Iowa.

“Iowa has just been the goal for me all my life,” Daufeldt said. “The opportunity came up, so I took it. … I am pretty physical up front, quick off the ball and hopefully I can just keep building my strength and athleticism and play a part on their team.”

Daufeldt will represent the South squad at the Shrine Bowl, which also includes Beau Cornwell of West Branch, Iowa City West’s Landon Green, Gage Hazen-Faber of Williamsburg, UNI football signee Trey Lasek (Highland) and Coe wrestling recruit Garet Sims (Iowa Valley).

Longtime West Branch Coach Butch Pedersen will serve as head coach of the South. He has previously helped as an assistant with the Shrine Bowl. Iowa coaches are limited to one stint as a Shrine Bowl assistant, plus one as a head coach.

“It is a tremendous experience,” Pedersen said. “Not only from the coaches and the parents and the players, but we just think that it is a wonderful activity. I am extremely honored to be involved in this.”

Iowa Valley Coach Cody Snitker and Sigourney-Keota’s Jared Jensen are two of Pedersen’s assistants.

“We want to get everybody on the field,” Pedersen said. “We want everybody to play an equal amount of time, for the most part. We want to do the best possible job we can on each and every play that we play. Usually if you have that philosophy, you are going to be pretty successful at the end. I don’t think it is such a matter of win or lose, because I think everybody wins here.”

The North team is coached by West Lyon’s Jay Rozeboom, with Dan Burke of Center Point-Urbana serving as one of the assistants.

The North roster includes Decorah’s Carston Baumler, Jordan Bries of West Delaware, Matt Davis of Benton Community, Iowa football recruit Taylor Fox (East Buchanan), Cedar Rapids Kennedy’s Noah Gloede, Owen Grover of Dyersville Beckman, Don Bosco’s Noah Pittman, Union's Kaleb Roach, Preston Rochford of Edgewood-Colesburg, CPU’s Nick Takes and Brayden Wright of Cedar Rapids Washington.
