The West U-16 challenge starts tomorrow.

All games will be streamed on the Football Canada YouTube channels.


Saskatchewan vs Manitoba starts in 30 minutes, at 7 pm EDT.

BC vs Alberta starts at 10 pm EDT:

And the host team pulls off the victory over Alberta:

This kid was dominant:

I wouldn't be too surprised to see him in the CFL one day.
