Steve Sumarah and the rest of the Junior National Team coaching staff will lead Canada’s U19 roster in preparation for the 2018 IFAF U19 World Championship. The majority of the roster is comprised of the all-star team selected from the 2016 Football Canada Cup, held July 9-15 in Winnipeg. Joining this core group include four players – Nick Cross, Mathew Goodall, J-Min Pelley and Charles-Émile Bouchard – who helped Canada to gold at the 2016 IFAF U19 World Championship in China.
