Local football players on the path to representing Team Alberta

A collection of Central Alberta football players hit Foote field in Edmonton for the annual Football Alberta Super Weekend last weekend.

Out of 370 players from all across the province at the camp, 142 were selected to advance to the final Team Alberta U17/18 Selection Camp in Calgary in April.

In total, nine local players have moved on to the camp in April.

At quarterback, Ethan Briault of Notre Dame and Hunting Hills Lucas Fuerbringer made the next step. Running backs Quinton Kremp of Notre Dame and Nolan Baragar of Hunting Hills are also among the 142 players. Rounding out the offensive group was a pair of Sylvan Lake wide receivers, Reuben Braitenback and Cody Peever.

On defence, three players made the cut. Hunting Hills Joel Demale and Chase Pack of Lindsay Thurber at linebacker, as well as Lindsay Thurber defensive back John Sansom.

Players selected from the camp in Calgary will go on to represent Team Alberta U18 at the Football Canada Cup in Vancouver, B.C., in July and Team Alberta U17 will go to a development camp in Maui in August.
