The Blue Bombers may be on the road this weekend, but that doesn’t mean Canad Inns Stadium will be sitting empty.
The best young football players in Manitoba will be competing in Football Manitoba’s 2012 Championship Weekend.
Among the players to watch are North Winnipeg Nomads midget quarterback Julian Wytinck, St. Vital Mustangs outstanding major league defensive player of the year Chad Nellis, East Side Eagles major league all-stars Casey Saunders and Kelly Sansregret, and Eastman Raiders all-around star Brock Letkeman. This is also the first year that the Valour Patriots Bantam team has made it to Championship Weekend in their four years competing.
The competition begins Saturday at 8 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m. Sunday’s events will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
