The Mason Twirlers, grades 5th, 6th, 7th 8th and 9th grades, were invited to perform at the 2011 All-American Middle School Bowl Games.

The Football University, a division of the US Army ALL American Bowl Games, was presenting the third annual All American Middle School Football Bowl Games, Sunday January 9, 2011. The twirlers were invited to help showcase twirling. The twirlers saluted the flags from the sidelines during the pre-game, and the half time free twirl routines were performed on the field to "Stars and Stripes Forever". The performance and Game took place in the cavernous Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The 2nd game was carried live on television.

The goal was to have 100 middle school twirlers participating in the event. Mason had 17 participants attending. Those attending were: 9th grade, Savannah Kast, 8th grade: Staci Habecker, Madelyn Glentz, and Jovanna Rodriquez. 7th grade: Faith Ingracia and Rowan Airheart. 6th grade: Jodie Evans, Susan Airheart, Kody Criswell, Ashley Haley, Margaret Graves and Brittany George. 5th grade: Kylar Elliott, Jaclyne Grosse, Haley Reams, Emily Torrez, and Vannessa Dominguez.

During the three games, the girls were treated to football action by players from all over the US. The teams were divided into East US against West US. The players only participate by invitation. These guys were the best middle school football players screened by camps, Coaches’ recommendations, and films. The middle school bands that represented the teams were also by invitation only, and were outstanding. It was a great experience and the girls enjoyed it tremendously. They even got to meet Miss San Antonio Teen! You can find more at .

The students were sponsored by Belinda Finn.
