Watch: Chilliwack Giant stands out at 2018 International Bowl

Logan Buchwitz caught a five yard TD pass in a 14-7 Team Canada West win over Team Canada East.

Chilliwack’s Logan Buchwitz is making a name for himself at the 2018 International Bowl.

The Chilliwack Giants player and GW Graham student traveled to Texas this week to represent Football Canada in the showcase event.

Buchwitz donned the colours of U-16 Team Canada West for a game against U-16 Team Canada East, played Monday at Maverick Stadium, which is located on the campus of the University of Texas at Arlington.

Wearing his customary No. 88, Buchwitz scored a touchdown for the westerners in a 14-7 win.

With his team scrimmaging from the Team Canada East five yard line, Buchwitz lined up at receiver. He ran a quick out to the sideline, reached out to snag a slightly underthrown ball and lunged across the goal-line with a Team Canada East defender trying to drag him down.

If that moment wasn’t memorable enough, the Chilliwack Minor Football product also got to tour AT&T Stadium, home of the National Football League’s Dallas Cowboys.

His team was involved in jamboree action Wednesday afternoon, after Progress press deadlines.
