Creighton senior Bryce Zimmerer has at least one more football game left before he hangs up the cleats.
Zimmerer was picked to play for the North team in the Nebraska Shrine Bowl.
The senior Bulldog helped lead Creighton to its first-ever state championship this past season and a perfect 13-0 record.
In the Class D1 state title game, Zimmerer ran the ball 54 times for 320 yards and two touchdowns.
