GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Outstanding football players from North and South Carolina high schools kept a 76-year-old tradition alive with a trip to an Upstate hospital Sunday.

Each year, on the weekend before the teams for each state do battle on the football field, they gather together at the Greenville Shriner's Hospital for children.

Players arrived at the hospital Sunday morning patients and saw firsthand how their participation in the Shrine Bowl helps the hospital continue to provide orthopedic care for children regardless of their families' ability to pay.

During the tours, players visited areas of the hospital not normally open to the public, such as the hospital's surgical suites, motion analysis lab, and prosthetics and orthotics department.

The North and South Carolina teams will compete in the 77th annual Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas on December 21, in Gibbs Stadium at Wofford College.

    As Hurricane Maria continues to move north across the Caribbean toward the East Coast, an area of low pressure moves out of the western U.S., leaving an area of high pressure in control of the Southeast weather bringing only a few afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms with more hot, muggy temperatures.
