Chilliwack’s Logan Buchwitz turns heads at 2018 International Bowl

The football star caught a touchdown pass against the United States in a U-16 football showdown.

Chilliwack’s Logan Buchwitz turned in a second eye-opening performance at last week’s International Bowl football showcase in Texas.

After scoring a touchdown in a 14-7 win for U-16 Team Canada West over U-16 Team Canada East, the Chilliwack Giants product and GW Graham student was back at it in a jamboree game last Wednesday against U-16 United States.

The jamboree format saw Team Canada West get 20 minutes on offence, scrimmaging from the United States 35 yard line to start each drive.

With his team at the 14 yard line on their second drive, Buchwitz lined up outside the left hash-marks as a receiver and ran a go pattern straight into the endzone.

The United States safety didn’t get over quick enough, delivering a jolt to Buchwitz only after he’d already hauled hauled in a rainbow pass from Team Canada West quarterback Eli Hetlinger.

Buchwitz and his team won the game 14-12 and right after that, moved on to a match against U-16 Mexico which they won 26-6.

The games were played at Maverick Stadium, which is located on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington.
