Two H. J. Cody Lakers football players have been invited to the Team Alberta final selection camp May 10-12 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary.
Braydn Marchesi and T. J. Sloboda were selected for the offensive line following four talent ID camps runs in Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton and Red Deer during two freezing weekends early in April.
Sloboda was named the Lakers’ lineman of the year during the team’s awards banquet in March.
Both Marchesi and Sloboda are currently playing with Prairie Fire Football Club. Also selected for the camp were their teammates Tylen Smith, Ashton Hall, Joe McQuay and Evan Petriew.
They play in the Calgary and Area Midget Football League.
The Fire defeated Calgary Bulldogs 30-7 on the weekend for their second win of the season.
They beat the Northern Raiders 24-20 the week before.
The program is only for players born in 1996 or 1997.
At the selection camp will be 114 players from all parts of the province. This group will be narrowed down to 40 players to represent Alberta at the Football Canada Cup July 15-22 in Moncton, New Brunswick.
Oops – Our Apr. 18 article on Tyler Ledwos and Scott Pearson being chosen for the North All-Star Team should have indicated they were Prairie Fire alumni and not current players.
They’ll play in the 24th annual Senior Bowl May 20 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary.
