The Prince George Kodiaks Northern Selects youth football program competed in the “Rumble in the Rockies” tournament.

The tournament was hosted by the Alberta International Selects Football Club in Red Deer.

The Kodiaks Northern Selects competed in three age groups including 13U, 15U and 18U.

Day one of the competition included skills competitions, such as receivers against defensive backs, a lineman challenge, and a 40 yard dash competition.

Three of the six finalists in the 40 yard dash competition were Kodiaks Selects Players.

The weekend came to a close with the Kodiaks Northern Selects 18U defeating the Alberta International Selects 20-14 in the championship game.

“A tournament that features this amount of talent creates an amazing opportunity for our players to compete and measure their abilities against some of Alberta’s top talent,” said Kodiaks Program Director Coach Jamie Boreham.

“The exposure to University Coaches and former CFL players, and the experience to play outside of Prince George is optimal for our players and families. We played hard, learned a lot, and found a way to win.”

The Kodiaks Northern Selects Program will wrap up in April.

The Kodiaks next program will be High School Selects for athletes in grades 9-11, running from May 1st to June 1st.

The High School Selects program will wrap up with a home game against Sexsmith, Alberta.

Additionally, the Kodiaks will provide NFL flag football for athletes aged 5 to 18 in late-April.
