There’s an old saying in football: “Championship teams are built in the off-season.”

It’s no wonder that these Sooke football players all won awards at the Spartans Annual players banquet on Saturday, December 7.

The above picture was taken after speed, skills and strength clinics at the community hall. From left to right: Coach Andy, and players Bailey MacMillan, who received Bantam Spartan Player of the Year for his consistent hard play award, and Jordan Schutt, who received Rookie of the Year in Bantam (both these players will be part of the junior coaching program of Sooke Seahawks Atom team).

Bottom row: AvAn Wickheim, who received Dedicated Player Award, Spencer Logan, recognized as the Defensive Player MVP, Caleb Carrier, the O-line MVP and Jared Steele, overall MVP. These four players are a part of the Spartans-Vancouver Island and BC Provincial Champions!

Missing from the photo: Cole Johns (Junior Bantam MVP), Nick Pollock (Offense MVP Bantam). Congratulations to all the Sooke players! This is a testament to the coaches’, parents’ and players’ commitment to excellence in football. See you at the field next spring. Many thanks and Merry Christmas.

Andy Carrier
