Thirteen Graham Grizzlies invited to Team BC camps

The fledgling GW Graham football program has landed more players at Team BC camps than any other program in the province.

The GW Graham football program has 12 players attending the Team BC U-16 camp May 18-20.

GWG had more players invited to the camp than any other community or high school in the province.

The dozen Grizzlies represent 14 per cent of the 83 players who will hit the field in Richmond.

The GWG contingent includes Baker Douglas, Emerson Smith, Ethan Mastin, Wyatt Uzick, Billy Hanson, Jaren Lengert, Elijah Schellenberg, Liam McCormick, Emilio Pineda, Jordon Breuker, Michael Lengert and Braydon Winger.

“I’m stunned that provincial powerhouse schools like Mt. Douglas and Notre Dame had less kids invited to the camp than we did,” said GWG coach Laurie Smith. “Never did I expect to see this many Grizzlies in the mix for Team BC after year one.”

The Grizzly players will be trying for a spot on the final Team BC roster.

That squad will compete in a national tournament in Manitoba July 6-14.

Jake Creasey, a Chilliwack Minor Football product who will play for GWG in the fall, was invited to the U-18 Team BC camp. If he makes the final roster, he’ll travel to San Antonio, Texas, to play in an international tournament in January, 2014.
