Three Sylvan Lake Bantam Lions football players were chosen to attend a Central Alberta Football League banquet for each team’s all-stars in Red Deer last month.

Burkley Theriault, Carson Lethbridge and Sebastian Auger were joined by coaches David Berg and Vic Sloboda for the occasion, where, on behalf of their team, they received the Players’ Choice Sportsmanship award for displaying the highest level of sportsmanship among the league’s 13 teams.

“We are very honoured and proud of our players, as (sportsmanship) is something our coaches are always striving to promote with our players,” said team manager Diana Zenert. “This clearly shows it’s working.”

The Lions received the award as a result of votes lodged by other teams in the league.

Each team was represented at the banquet by a number of players determined by their final league position. The Lions finished sixth out of 13 teams, and were allowed to send three all-star players.
