Wetaskiwin Composite High School Sabres Football 2012!
Friday, May 11, 2012
The Sabres Annual Spring camp starts on Monday, May 14 with equipment hand out and registration at the Sabres’ Den at Norm Brown Field.
Sabres Head Coach Kevin Gibson is enthusiastic about the upcoming camp and the fall season. “We have some very skilled players and leaders returning for the fall. An example is the rare and exciting opportunity to see senior, Josh Saddleback, build on his skills as our starting quarterback for three consecutive years.”
In addition to returning coaches Steve Majek, Kevin Schular and Jim Moser, the Sabres are very pleased to have Dylan Graff join the coaching staff. Graff is a Sabres Football alumnus and most recently played and coached with the Edmonton Wildcats of the Prairie Junior Football League.
The coaches and players have been recruiting in the Wetaskiwin area schools, looking for dedicated athletes who are currently in Gr 9 & 10 and will be enrolled in the fall at WCHS. Offensive coordinator Kevin Schular has let recruits know that, “spring camp is a terrific way to get involved in a low pressure football experience, especially if a recruit is unsure about his football skills.” Coach Schular also reminded the recruits that they only have three years of eligibility to play athletics in high school and that everyone on the Sabres football team gets playing time in the games if they are dedicated to school and team.
The Sabres spring camp includes a meeting with a team returning to the Central Alberta League after more than a 30 year hiatus. Defensive coordinator Steve Majek stated that, “We are really looking forward to our scrimmage against the Ponoka Broncs on May 30. We see it as the start of a great rivalry with our neighbors down the 2A highway, like the rivalry we have with Camrose when we play for the Highway 13 Bowl.” The Broncs have most recently been involved in the successful and burgeoning 6 man football league in Alberta.
Players must have $70 for spring camp fee, a $150 equipment deposit cheque, and completed forms to receive equipment and participate in practices and games. The May 14th registration evening includes a non-equipment skills session. Players will need cleats and athletic wear.
