Two Comox Valley Raiders chosen Team BC camp

Jimmy Brazier and Tristan Thies-Erickson part of the U18 invitees

Football BC has announced the players that have been invited to take part in the 2014 Team BC May Long Weekend camp to be held May 17-19 in Richmond.

Included on the U18 list are Jimmy Brazier and Tristan Thies-Erickson of the Comox Valley Raiders.

The players who have been selected to the camp were tested as part of the Football BC Combine Series which took place throughout January and February.

The May Long Weekend camp serves as the part of the process to select the players that will be representing B.C. as part of either the provincial under-16 team (U16 Team BC) or the provincial under-18 team (U18 Team BC).

In total, over 260 players from across the province have been invited to take part in the May Long Weekend Camp.

In 2013, U16 Team BC competed in the Red River Cup tournament hosted by Football Manitoba at Investors Group Field in Winnipeg, Manitoba and captured the gold medal in the tournament.

For the past two seasons, U18 Team BC has competed in the FBU International Showcase which is held in San Antonio, Texas as part of the U.S. Army All American Bowl Week. U18 Team BC has posted an overall record of three wins and zero losses over the past two years.
