Among the names released are three Hawk seniors: Tanner Hamade (DB), Dustin Plett (DL), and Luke Friesen (LB). They are joined by WR Desmond Bassi (WR) who had previously received automatic invitation by virtue of his Provincial All-Star selection in the 2010 season.
Hamade capped his Hawk football career with an impressive three interceptions on the season, two of which were returned for touchdowns. Plett was previously honored with an Eastern All-Conference nod for his play on the defensive line, including three sacks and twenty four tackles. Despite missing two games late in the season due to injury, Friesen‘s multi-purpose role included a team second-best sixty-two tackles and two sacks as well as an interception on defense, in addition to significant offensive contributions as a fullback and receiver.
This year’s Senior Bowl game will see the players split into teams based on their location with BC West (Vancouver Island and Lower Mainland) facing BC East (Fraser Valley and Interior) for provincial bragging rights. The camp schedule of events is available for download in PDF format here.
