Chilliwack’s Logan Buchwitz a Football Canada star

The GW Graham student stood out at July’s West Challenge showcase event in Lethbridge.

Chilliwack football player Logan Buchwitz has been named a 2017 U-16 West Challenge All-Star by Football Canada.

The GW Graham student is one of 40 players who shone in early July at a showcase event in Lethbridge. The West Challenge featured top talent from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba and Buchwitz is one of just five from this province making the all-star roster.

He’s been selected as a receiver.

“This all-star list reflects the diverse pool of players that exists in the West,” said Aaron Geisler, Football Canada’s Manager of Development. “During the U-16 West Challenge, we witnessed speed, explosiveness and athleticism from the four participating provinces.

Being selected as a West Challenge All-Star is a major accomplishment and players should be proud of this special recognition.”

Along with the all-star selection comes an invite to play in the 2018 International Bowl, at a time and place to be determined.
