2019 Under-16 Western Challenge All-Stars unveiled
Football Canada has recognized the achievements of 40 players who participated at the 2019 Under-16 Western Challenge in Kamloops, BC by selecting them as tournament all-stars.
Saskatchewan, who claimed the championship in July, leads the selections with 15 players. Manitoba fielded 5 players while silver medalist British Columbia had 9. Alberta had 11 all-stars.
Selecting this all-star roster was difficult due to the high calibre of talent that was displayed in Kamloops this past summer.
“With so many talented players, this all-star list reflects the diverse pool of players that exists in the West,” commented Aaron Geisler, Football Canada Director of Sport. “During the under-16 West Challenge, we witnessed speed, explosiveness and athleticism from the four participating provinces.”
“After three years of this tournament, we can already see the impact and importance of this event on the national stage. Seeing the high level of competition in Kamloops made the task of selecting all-stars very tough. Being selected as a West Challenge All-Star is a major accomplishment and players should be proud of this special recognition.”
