Football Grizzlies placed in Eastern conference

The G.W. Graham Grizzlies had their status set at the B.C. Secondary Schools Football Association AGM.

The British Columbia Secondary Schools Football Association held its AGM on the weekend.

Chilliwack’s new high school football team at G.W. Graham middle-secondary school had its status solidified for the 2012 season.

The Grizzlies will debut at the AA junior varsity level, playing in the Eastern conference against the likes of Mission, Robert Bateman, Langley, Rick Hansen, Samuel Robertson Technical, Abbotsford Collegiate and Pitt Meadows.

In total, there are 33 teams at the AA level in B.C., all gunning for an appearance in the  provincial championship game to be played Dec. 1 at B.C. Place Stadium.

GWG has already set an exhibition schedule that includes games in Oregon and White Rock (Earl Marriott secondary school).

The Grizzlies have also set a preseason date with John Barsby secondary school, the defending provincial champions from Nanaimo.

“We are a brand new program, but playing the best teams early will give us a true indication of where we stand,” said GWG defensive coach Sean Roach.

The Grizzlies have set their spring camp for May 21 to June 1, with a jamboree on June 1 at Langley secondary.
