Joseph C Nurre’s retired jersey will be presented to the parents, Leigh and Charlie Nurre at the 2014 NorCal Honor Bowl. Nurre graduated from Elk Grove in 2001 and joined the Army Reserves. He was KIA August 21, 2005. Gold Star parents Patty Schumacher and Hope Ramirez hold the framed Jersey. This is another heart felt example of why The Honor Bowl is ‘More than just a football game!”
The Honor Group has expanded the 2014 Honor Bowl to have back to back two day Football Invitations starting in Northern California and then traveling to Southern California the following weekend.
