Posted on 2015-12-09 12:02:19



From Football BC Technical Director Dino Geremia

Congratulations to all the players who have made it this far in the Team BC selection process!

It is an amazing and exceptional experience to play for your province you are following a long list of football players who have worn that Team BC jersey: Jerome Pathon, Paris Jackson, Angus Reid, Will Loftus, David Mattiazzo, current CFL players Casey Chin and Matthias Goossen and, of course, 18 of the players on this year's UBC Thunderbirds Vanier Cup Championship team.

All these players and many more have taken pride in representing BC nationally and internationally

This year, we are excited to have three of our teams represent the province at the High Roller Tournament & Showcase in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Once again this year I am humbled by the quality of staff that we have coaching and supporting the players. The experience and knowledge of the game that they possess rivals the best staffs across the country and any that we have put together in the past.

All the players have given the coaches difficult decisions to make! Being selected to Team BC is an accomplishment to be proud of and one that you will never forget as you represent football in your province. There is only one Team BC.

BC Tough!
