Valley Husker QB named B.C. Football Conference Player of the Week

Julian Wytinck’s arm helped the Huskers stop the Kamloops Broncos 38-17 for their 3rd win of the year

A record setting outing by Valley Huskers quarterback Julian Wytinck has earned him B.C. Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week honours.

Wytinck led his team to a 38-17 win over the Kamloops Broncos Saturday night at Exhibition Stadium.

The cannon-armed pivot completed 21 of 36 passes for a Husker franchise record 449 yards. Wytinck threw three touchdown passes, two to Anthony Dyck and one to Brandon Poulin.

The BCFC news release sent out Tuesday afternoon puts Wytinck’s passing yardage as the 10th highest single-game total in Canadian Junior Football League history.

Defensive POW honours went to Okanagan Sun linebacker Conor Richard, who recorded four tackles, two sacks, one forced fumble and one pass defensed in a 21-13 road win at Langley.

Sun kicker Isaac Wegner earned Special Teams POW honours, nailing five of six field goal attempts and averaging 38.3 yards on 10 punts.

All BCFC teams are on a bye week, returning to action Sept. 8.
