GW Graham’s Logan Buchwitz chosen to play in Prospect Game.

The showcase for Canada’s top teenage football talents will be nationally televised on TSN.

GW Graham football star Logan Buchwitz has been invited to play in the Prospect Game, which will be broadcast nationally on TSN June 2.

The showcase will be played in Ottawa, at TD Place Stadium. Buchwitz is one of 73 teenagers selected, and one of nine from B.C.

He’s been assigned to the Team Burris roster, which will be coached by Canadian Football League legend Henry Burris.

Buchwitz is listed as a receiver.

The other team will be coached by another CFL quarterbacking great, Matt Dunigan.

Players were chosen by a 33-person selection committee after an eight-city tryout and identification process.

The selection committee includes a number of current and former CFL players including Dominic Picard, Dave Donaldson, Austin Collie, Tyler Crapigna, Tevaun Smith, Jake Thomas, Shea Emry and Kelly Bates.

Players in the game are viewed as having the potential to play in the CFL.

Buchwitz led his GWG Grizzlies to last fall’s AA junior varsity provincial championship and is seen as a potential NCAA Division 1 recruit.

“CFC is committed to growing the game of football in Canada, and we created this game as a platform to celebrate the depth of elite talent we have across our country,” said Lee Barette, president of and CEO of the Prospect Game. “We are pleased to partner with TSN on this new initiative and look forward to showcasing the most exciting young players that Canada has to offer.”

Farhan Lalji will provide play-by-play for the game, joined by analyst Duane Forde.
