The Honor Group, Inc., a nonprofit that educates students, coaches and the community about patriotism while raising money for injured ill and wounded veterans, today announced that the Eleventh-Annual Honor Bowl presented by the San Francisco 49ers will once again take place in Northern and Southern California.
"Through our partnership with the Honor Bowl, we have seen first-hand the benefits of connecting high school football players with military veterans," said 49ers General Manager John Lynch. "In addition to sharing many important principles with the 49ers, such as youth development and honoring military service, the Honor Bowl provides high school football players with an opportunity to compete at a high level while learning more about the sacrifice our military members and their families make for this country. We're excited for this year's matchups and the opportunity to support a great organization."
This year, the 2022 Honor Bowl and its fourteen-team, seven-game, two-region format - featuring some of the nation's best high school football programs - will take place September 2-3 at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, and September 9 at Oak Ridge High School in El Dorado Hills. The Friday Northern California event will feature a HomeTown Honor Bowl that will honor the regions First Responders - Sheriff, EMT, Fire, CDC&R as well as our Military. Planned events will also take place during pregame and halftime, providing for a truly patriotic experience for all spectators.
