Football Grizzlies gather Team BC invites

Fourteen GW Graham Grizzlies and one Chilliwack Minor Football Giant are invited to provincial camps running May 16-18 in Richmond.

Fifteen local football stars have received invites to Football BC Provincial evaluation camps.

Camps at the U-16 and U-18 levels will run May 16-18 in Richmond.

Talent evaluators from at least seven CIS schools are expected to watch the camp and give presentations to the players.

Most of the locals at the U-18 level play for the high school GW Graham Grizzlies.

Defensive backs Emerson Smith and Ethan Mastin are joined by receiver Noah Dubosoff and defensive linemen Dakota Mathers and Jaren Lengert.

The Grizzlies are fast earning a reputation as ‘Offensive Lineman U,’ and three of their big men have received invites.

They are Michael Lengert, Braydon Winger and Liam McCormick.

A fourth offensive lineman, Chris Derksen, plays in the Chilliwack Minor Football system.

The U-16 level has six Grizzlies getting invites.

Offensive lineman Jake Troyan is joined by receivers Bradley Langlois and Alex Whitehead, defensive linemen Jesse Hough and Cooper Middleton and linebacker Von Richardson.
