A group of Central Alberta football players will represent the north in the 30th Annual Senior Bowl High School Football All-Star Game.
At a tryout in Edmonton last weekend, five players from the region were selected out of a group of 150 graduating grade 12 players to compete in the May long weekend game in Calgary against the South region.
Defensive linemen Eric Desilets of the Notre Dame Cougars and William Ferguson of the Hunting Hills Lightning made the list.
