Eight GW Graham football stars are taking the next step in their bid to make Team BC’s U-16 and U-18 football rosters.
Football BC has invited top talent to a practice and team bonding event Aug. 20 in Vancouver.
The experience includes tickets to a BC Lions versus Montreal Alouettes Canadian Football League game taking place that night.
Before the game, players will hit the field at Andy Livingstone Park for a practice.
Chilliwack players receiving invites on the U-16 side include linebacker Von Richardson, offensive linemen Cooper Middleton and Jake Troyan and wide receiver Alex Whitehead.
Invites on the U-18 side include defensive back Emerson Smith, defensive lineman Jaren Lengert and offensive linemen Michael Lengert and Braydon Winger.
The Grizzly contingent hopes to survive one final cutdown in December and represent BC in the Tanoa Classic.
The annual event is usually played in late December and features all-star squads from BC, Washington State and Hawaii.
