Football BC has released the list of 62 players who have advanced past the first cut-down stage of tryouts for the provincial under-18 team (Team BC) that will represent British Columbia at the 2011 Football Canada Cup.
The 62 players advancing to the next stage of the tryout process were selected from a roster of over 130 players that attended the Team BC tryout camp at Simon Fraser University over the Victoria Day long weekend.
The 62-player roster breaks down as follows: 10 defensive backs, 11 defensive linemen, 10 offensive linemen, nine linebackers, 10 receivers, eight running backs, three quarterbacks and one kicker.
The 62 players on the cut-down roster will take part in an exhibition/scrimmage game in June with the final 40-player roster to be announced following the game. Full details for the exhibition game will be announced at a later date.
Hawks’ Deion Bain (DB), who was a member of the 2010 Team BC bronze medal squad, Nathan Henczel (DB), Jake Heathcote (LB) and Dairien Silva (OL) will be playing in the scrimmage which will be used to decide the final 40-man roster to travel to Lethbridge this summer.
