Media Release: Football BC announces 56-player cut-down roster for U-18 Team BC
Congratulation to our own North Surrey Bear running back, Bashiru Sise-Odaa for impressing the U18 Team BC coaches at the player evaluations despite an injury early in the weekend workouts. Former NSMF stand-out running back, Jamal Lyles, now at Lord Tweedsmuir High School, also made the cut-down roster.
BURNABY, B.C. – Football BC announced today the list of 56 players who have advanced to the final cut-down stage of tryouts for the provincial under-18 tackle team (“U-18 Team BC”) that will represent British Columbia at the FBU International Games as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Week to be held in San Antonio, Texas in early January 2014.
The selected players will be invited to a final mini-camp to take place in December. The final team roster of 36 players will be named at the conclusion of the mini-camp.
The 56 players advancing to the final stage of the tryout process were primarily selected from a roster of over 120 players that attended the Team BC tryout camp held in Richmond, B.C. over the Victoria Day Long Weekend.
