Local grid-iron warriors sharpening their skills to hasten their quest for an Island Championship

Sooke’s atom Seahawks attended their first-ever Victoria Allstars camp.

Sooke’s atom Seahawks attended their first-ever Victoria Allstars camp, hosted by Coach Mark Townsend. The camp was hosted at Mount Douglas, which is home to the current Provincial AAA high school champions. Pictured is Will “the tiger” Gor, taking down his opponent with a heads-up leg tackle. Waiting in the wings is Caleb “creeper” Carrier and Hunter “hunt ‘em down” Swift. Should the ball carrier get past those two, AvAn “pit bull” Wickheim was ready to deal. Needless to say, it was not a fun drill for the carrier!
