Football’s future at Senior Bowl

Three Chilliwack coaches lead the way for a trio of local players at this weekend’s Senior Bowl, being held at Empire Stadium in Vancouver.

An annual camp run by Football B.C. for players graduating from high school, the camp is held during the week of Spring Break and culminates with an East versus West game tomorrow.

The purpose is to encourage the players, ranked among the best 17-year-olds from across British Columbia, to continue their playing careers following graduation, moving on to the midget, junior or university level.

Two of the local coaches hail from the B.C. Football Conference Chilliwack Huskers.

Huskers head coach Luke Acheson will guide the offensive line while offensive coordinator Jon Klyne acts as receivers coach.

Chilliwack Minor Football coach Surresh Parray guided the midget Giants to a provincial title in 2009.

This weekend he acts as the quarterbacks coach.

Three members of Parray’s 2010 Giants squad earned roster spots on Team East. Running back Brad Esau is joined by offensive linemen Tylor Engel and Richard Wilkinson.

Last year’s Huskers defensive coordinator, Jeff Alamolhoda (now with the Langley Rams) is also involved in the Senior Bowl as a linebackers coach.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. tomorrow and admission is free.
