Four Graham Grizzlies make the grade

After surviving the first round of cuts, a quartet of GW Graham football players are in the mix for a U-18 Team BC roster spot.

Four GW Graham Grizzlies have survived the first cut for Football BC’s U-18 team that will  travel to San Antonio this winter.

Treyvon Walsh, Diego Pineda, Braydon Winger and Brett Westad attended a camp on the May Long weekend along with 116 other players from BC’s top high school and community football programs.

Walsh was one of 10 defensive backs retained.

Pineda and Winger are among 11 defensive linemen remaining and Westad is one of seven running backs still in the mix.

The final roster, which is expected to be named in mid-December following one final evaluation camp, will consist of just 36 players.

Team BC travels to San Antonio between Dec. 28 and Jan. 4 for the FBU International Showcase.
