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 cut-down roster can be downloaded from:http://www.playfootball.bc.ca/uploads/U18TeamBC2013Cutdown56Roster.pdf.
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.
Of the 56 players named to the cut-down roster, 10 are returning members from last year’s U-18 Team BC that dominated the competition at the FBU International Games defeating Europe and the USA to finish the tournament with a perfect 2-0 record while out-scoring their opponents by a combined 79-32.
Team BC is led by head coach and offensive line coach Tom Kudaba (Terry Fox Ravens).
