Top high school footballers meet Saturday in Senior Bowl

  • Print

Manitoba’s top graduating high school football players have one more shot this weekend to showcase their skills before moving on in the game or wrapping up their careers.

The 13th annual Winnipeg High School Football League Senior Bowl goes Saturday at noon at the East Side Eagles Football facility with the top 100 players in the province, as selected by coaches, battling for the Gerry James Trophy.

Team Laping, led by University of Manitoba Bisons assistant Tim Kist will face Team Puchniak, headed by Winnipeg Rifles head coach Ryan Karhut. Both teams are named in honour of two gentlemen, since passed, who were instrumental in building the game.

Nick Laping attended St. Paul’s High School and the University of Manitoba, where he also later coached, and was instrumental in building the Oak Park Raiders program. He passed away in 2009 and has since been inducted into both the WHSFL and Manitoba Football Hall of Fame.

John Puchniak also played for the Crusaders and Bisons and then helped build the football program at Churchill High School into a powerhouse. He is a member of the WHSFL and Manitoba High School Sports Hall of Fame.
