Chilliwack’s 2010 peewee provincial champion Giants are being recognized by the office of the Premier of British Columbia, Gordon Campbell.

The team will meet with the Premier on Feb. 21 at 4:45 p.m. at Canada Place.

They will give him a game ball and signed team photo and he will give them certificates.

The locals rolled through the 2010 regular season with a record of 7-3-0.

They knocked off the mighty Abbotsford Falcons to take the Valley Community Football League title, and vanquished the Kelowna Lions to punch their ticket to provincials.

In the final, the Giants proved too much for the Coquitlam Wildcats, winning 28-13.

These Giants join the 1998 junior bantam Giants and the 2009 midget Giants on the short list of Chilliwack provincial football champions.
