Senior Bowl 2014

Senior Bowl South Team Announced

It’s been 25 seasons since the first “South” All-Star was selected to represent Northern Alberta in the first ever Senior Bowl for graduating Grade 12 high school football players. In April 1990 a one day session indoors at Jack Singer Gymnasium on the U of C’s campus sufficed picking the team that would eventually beat the “North” 19-16 in Commonwealth Stadium a month later. This year a three day affair this past weekend that for the first time was held in Lethbridge at the University of Lethbridge Community Stadium has given us the roster below that will return to Commonwealth to take on the “North” to commemorate the 25th Senior Bowl on Monday, May 19th.

The “North” Team was picked the previous weekend (see below). Here is the “South” team listed by position and alphabetically with their school.

The Senior Bowl is a high school all-star game for graduating Grade 12 athletes. Each year two Selection Camps are held in April in both the "North" and "South" to create two representative teams that will compete in the main camp and game - this year held in Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium to mark the 25th Senior Bowl - over the May long weekend. This event is supported by both the Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders and each team wears their respective colors during the game.

 

Senior Bowl 2013

South 31 North 19
McMahon Stadium, Calgary
May 20, 2013

It was a well-rounded effort for the South All-Stars in the 24th Annual Senior Bowl as eight different players contributed with double digits in either rushing or pass receiving. That, combined with a solid effort from their three QB’s and their defense paced them to a 31-19 victory over the North. The North opened the scoring at 5:56 of the first quarter on a 12 yard passing TD from Hunting Hills QB Scott Pearson to St. Albert’s Brandon Thera-Plamondon. The South countered quickly less than a minute later at 6:37 of the first with a 30 yard TD pass from Notre Dames’ Brett Hunchak to Springbank’s Kevin Natenstedt, then Hunchak struck again at 9:05 of the first with a 16 yard TD pass to Holy Trinity Academy’s Ryder Stone. St. Francis QB Boston Rowe took over from there in the first half leading a drive down the field then taking it over himself for a TD at 12:59 of the second quarter. That combined with a single off a punt left the score 22-7 at the half for the South. The second half became a defensive struggle with Bowness linebacker, Jakob Jakoubec leading the way with five unassisted tackles to hold the North to a single 42 yard field goal by Harry Ainlay’s Daniel Ellis in the third. Both teams exchanged safety touches as well in the third to give the South a 24-12 lead with one quarter to go. In the fourth, both teams exchanged touchdowns with L.C.I’s Brock Ramius taking it in from 5 yards out at 13:34 and Ardrossan’s Jimmy Airey setting a new Senior Bowl single rush record with a 102 yard TD run at 14:03 making the final 31-19. For their efforts, Spruce Groves Nik Palek and Henry Wise Wood’s Justin Keys were named their respective teams Lineman of the Game and the Most Valuable Player Awards went to Ryder Stone for the South and Jasper Place’s linebacker Brad Friesen for the North. The series now stands at 12-11-1 for the South with next years 25th anniversary game scheduled for Edmonton.

Senior Bowl 2012

"North" wins 2012 Senior Bowl 23-15

It was all North early on in the 23rd Annual Football Alberta Senior Bowl High School Football All-Star Game. After trading punts for most of the first quarter the North struck paydirt using the Austin O'Brien connection with runningback Leonardo Mantuila scampering for 42 yards down to the South's 15 yard line which was immediately followed by fellow Crusaders QB Jesse Schneider and SB Rick LeMoignan hooking up for the 15 yard TD pass with 1:27 left in the quarter. The next North possession saw Salisbury QB Matt Bonaca bootleg 62 yards setting up a 24 yard FG from Ideen Samadi out of Paul Kane at 13:54 of the second quarter

The South responded late in the second after a 18 yard interception return by L.C.I.'s Connor Robinson plus an unecessary roughness penalty put the ball on the North's one yard line, Bishop O'Byrne's Jarvis James plunged over for the TD to make it 10-7 with 4:45 left in the half. With 9 seconds left in the half Samadi added his second fieldgoal of the day with a 37 yarder to make it 13-7 North at the half.

The second half opened with a bang as Holy Trinity Adademy's Brandon Bellman took the opening kickoff for the South to the North's five yard line. The South immediately fumbled on the next play giving the ball to the North on their one. Three plays later the North conceded a safety touch to bring the score to 13-9 for the North at 12:58 of the third. At 6:26 of the third the North extended their lead to 20-7 with a three yard run from Bev Facey's Jordan Samoil following a thrilling 40 yard scramble from Schneider the play before.

The South threatened early in the fourth but a 3rd and one gamble at the North 10 yard line was shut down by Austin O’Brien linebacker Aidan Panchyshyn. From there the North was unable to move the ball and on the ensuing South drive St. Timothy QB Aaron Elock Colye hooked up with Notre Dame's Coel Bazinet three times before taking it over for the one yard QB sneak himself to make it 20-15 (the convert failed) with 8:03 left in the game. The next North drive saw Braiden Annabale from Archbishop Jordan stripped of the ball at the North's 35 yard line which the South failed to turn into points. With 1:33 left in the game the North iced it with a 40 yard FG from Samadi making it 23-15 which was the final score.

This now ties the series at 11 wins a piece with one tie. For their efforts, Panchyshyn was named the North MVP and Taylor Brooks, a wide receiver from Foothills with four tough catches in the game was named the South MVP.

2009 Senior Bowl

Final Score
North 38   South 19

At Calgary's McMahon Stadium on a cold, wet holiday Monday, the "North" streaked to a 23-7 lead on the strength of two Danny Sawchuk touchdowns, and three Andrew Jevne field goals.  The Peace River receiver scored on one pass reception from Bev Facey's Adam Seniuk and one fumble recovery in the end zone while the Sylvan Lake receiver/kicker was good from 17, 24, and 32.  The "South" countered back right before the half on a one yard plunge by Raymond's Storm Bartsoff (the convert failed).

The "North" opened the second half with a touchdown pass from Garrett Gleisner to St. Albert's Aaron Watkins which was answered later in the quarter by the "South" with Bartsoff's second touchdown of the day (2 point convert attempt failed).  Jevne added his fourth field goal of the game early in the fourth to push the score to 32-19 and defensive lineman Joel Seutter from Salisbury scored on a short yardage offensive play with less than a minute left (convert failed) to make the final 38-19.

The real story of the game was turnovers as the "South" committed ten to the "North's" none.  The series now stands at 10-9-1 in favor of the "South".

HISTORY

2007 marked our 18th anniversary of the Football Alberta Senior Bowl however the history of the game dated back over 36 years.

On February 10, 1968; the executive of the then Alberta Football Coaches Association (a forerunner to Football Alberta) met in Red Deer to discuss the concept of an Alberta High School Football All-Star Game to be known as the "Senior Bowl". The proposal involved the creation of two teams in a "North" vs. "South" fashion from the 56 High School football teams in Alberta.

Due to factors beyond their control the game did not occur and the idea remained dormant until it was resurrected in 1988 at a Football Alberta's Planning Meeting. Even then it was a full two years until Rocky Mountain House's Craig Berger kicked off for the "North" to St. Francis's Sam Scalise of the "South" in Commonwealth Stadium on July 7, 1990 to begin what is now an annual event.

Today, the game is not much different from the proposal made in 1968. It is a contest between the best high school football players in Northern Alberta (from Red Deer north) against their counterparts in Southern Alberta selected from the 105 High Schools currently with football programs.

Since 1990 the concept of showing off the best talent that Alberta high schools have that was dreamed of in 1968 has come true. With the continued support of its sponsors the game will continue to grow in its tradition and interest. Sometimes dreams do come true.

HOW IT WORKS

The planning for each years Senior Bowl actually begins in November as the coaching staffs for both the "North" and "South" All-Star teams are picked from the ranks of the high schools throughout the province.

The staff's are filled from the provincial finalist teams in Tier I, II, III and IV and championship teams from leagues with no provincial final representation. In April two selection camps are held to screen the over 600 nominee players from the team leagues in Alberta and out of it two 40+ man teams were finalized. Finally over the May long weekend the teams reconvene for a three day training camp followed by an Awards Banquet and the Senior Bowl Game.

NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Out of the Senior Bowl will come the selection of Alberta's provincial high school all-star team. From 1991-94 Football Alberta sponsored a team into inter-provincial play but always sent the winning team of the Senior Bowl. The results were mixed which caused us to develop a true provincial team selection process in 1995. This had an immediate positive result including 1995's National Championship victory over Quebec. This was followed by appearances in the National Final for the next three years which saw Alberta lose to Ontario in 1996 in Red Deer and beat them in 1997 56-20 in Ottawa, and had a 49-28 victory over surprising Nova Scotia in Halifax in 1998. In 1999 Alberta finished in third place then captured Alberta's 4th National Championship in Winnipeg in 2000 and it's 5th in Medicine Hat in 2001. The event was held in Ontario from 2002-2005 which started with a bronze in 2002 was followed by three silver medals from 2003-2005. In 2006 the team finished out of the medals for the first time in Winnipeg then returned to its winning ways a year later in Sherbrooke, PQ as it captured it's sixth Gold Medal with a 24-7 win over Ontatio in the final.

Each year we hope to continue this proud tradition as Team Alberta will be selected by the Provincial Team coaching staff from all of the athletes at the Senior Bowl. This team will reconvene each summer to take a run at the Football Canada Cup.

PAST SENIOR BOWL GAME RECAPS

2008 GAME RECAP - NORTH 31 SOUTH 21


Lead by the record breaking performance of Leduc quarterback Ben Gorniak, the "North" defeated the "South" 31-21 in front of 1,425 fans at Edmonton's Foote Field on Monday, May19, 2008.
The "South" started off strong taking their first drive the distance with Springbank's Tom Shaw hauling in a 53 yard bomb from Cochrane's Brent Serhyenko. The "North" then fired back immediately with Harry Ainlay's David Berg taking the ensuing kickoff 76 yards for the first ever kickoff return for a touchdown in the Senior Bowl to make it 7-7. The "North" then controlled the rest of the first half adding a 7 yard TD run by St. Albert's Chris Dobko and a 37 yard fieldgoal from Strathcona's Billy Harvey to make it 17-7 at the break.
At the beginning of the third quarter it was all "South" again as Highwood's Bryce Brandford hooked up with St. Francis's Taylor Nill for a 13 yard score to draw to within 3 points on their first drive. The "North" answered later in the quarter with a 21 yard strike from Gorniak to Nicholas Ross from Salisbury to up the lead to 10 once again. On the last play of the third the "South" struck again on a one yard sneak by Serhyenko and that cut the lead to a field goal again and it stayed that way until 30 seconds left in the game when Gorniak hooked up with Ross again for a 17 yard TD on a gutsy 3rd and 5 call to seal the deal for the "North".





2007 GAME RECAP - SOUTH 17 NORTH 16

With 9 seconds left in the game Lord Beaverbrook’s Braeden George hauled in a 37 yard touchdown pass from his schoolmate Trent Peterson for the winning score for the “South” in a tightly played game in front of 1,123 fans at Calgary’s McMahon Stadium.  This was definitely a defensive struggle as both high powered offenses had a hard time getting on track.  St. Francis’s Anthony DeZorzi lead the way for the “South” as the linebacker recorded seven solo tackles, a quarterback sack, and a fumble recovery on his way to being named his teams Most Valuable Player while St. Francis Xavier safety Rhys Coppens won the M.V.P. honors for the “North with two interceptions along with 124 yards in kickoff return yardage.  Other scorers in the game included George again with a first quarter major again from Peterson and a first quarter field goal from Henry Wise Wood’s Karim Ould Hamouda for the “South” while Ross Sheppards Hugh O’Neill kicked two field goals and added two singles to go with Salisbury’s Duncan Hankinson’s second quarter major for the “North”.

2006 GAME RECAP - NORTH 16 SOUTH 9

On the strength of two first half touchdowns the "North" held off a late "South" rally to win the 17th Annual Senior Bowl High School All-Star Game 16-9 in front of 1,437 fans at Clarke Stadium in Edmonton. Strathcona quarterback Corbin Sharun opened the scoring on the opening play of the second quarter with a six yard TD run that was followed up 13 minutes later with a Sharun to Bev Facey receiver Kevin Wuthrich touchdown pass to put the "North" up 14-0 at the half.

The "South" opened the second half with a single on the kickoff then made it interesting late after the "North" could only muster two singles in the second half with a late TD from Henry Wise Wood's Josh Leung on 22 yard TD pass from his schoolmate Graham Kelba with 55 seconds left. A fumble on the next "North" possession made it interesting as the "South" moved the ball down deep into "North" territory before turning it over on downs with 8 seconds left. For their efforts the linemen of the game were Bishop O'Byrnes Josh Symons for the "South" and Lac La Biche's Brett Waine for the "North". The Most Valuable Players of the Game were Wuthrich for the "North" and Bowness linebacker Nickalas Blevins for the "South"

2005 GAME RECAP - SOUTH 52 NORTH 12

Several records fell at McMahon Stadium on Monday, May 23rd as the South ran up the largest point total of any team beating the old record by 17 points. One major reason was the play of St. Francis receiver Marco Ianuzzi who recorded 282 total yards including 169 yards rushing and three TD's on seven carries to set a new Senior Bowl record.

2004 GAME RECAP - NORTH 29 SOUTH 21 (OT)

The first ever overtime game in Senior Bowl history saw a flurry of scoring in the 1st quarter followed by a defensive struggle in the 2nd and 3rd which was finally capped off by another barrage of scoring in the 4th. The "South" leapt out to an early 14-0 lead on the strength of a 73 yard interception return by St. Francis' Mike Viani and a 45 yard strike from Bowness' Jason Borodenko to Henry Wise Wood receiver Ahmad Borhot. The "North" countered with a 6 yard run by St. Albert's Devon Jones to end the first.

The fireworks came again in the 4th quarter as a "South" TD from Foothills Mark Vandal was followed by two field goals from Fort Saskatchewan's Tyler Mariacci and a TD from Cameron Thomas out of Eastglen (followed by a 2 pt. Convert completion to Archbishop O'Leary's Damon Fraietta) to tie the score for the "North" and sent the game to overtime where Salisbury's Tyler Budinski rambled 17 yards for the winning TD.

The MVP's were Borodenko for the "South" and David Raborn out of Bev Facey for the "North" who set a new mark for receiving yards with 7 catches for 129 yards.

2003 GAME RECAP - SOUTH 35 NORTH 26

The 14th annual game featured two distinctly different halfs of football as the "North" completely dominated the first half only to see the "South" put together a furious rally in the second half to win their first game since 1998.

Strathcona tailback Tyler O'Gorman was the star of the show in the first half as he racked up all 26 points for the "North" which included three touchdowns, three converts, a field goal and two singles to set a new record for points scored in a Senior Bowl (almost doubling the old record of 15). Then things took a complete turnaround as the "South", lead by Henry Wise Wood QB Mark Stinson and L.C.I.'s multi-talented linebacker/tight-end Andrew Patzer, scored four unanswered TD's in the second half to vault them pas the "North" and win the game.

For their efforts, O'Gorman took the M.V.P. honors for the "North" while Patzer was named M.V.P. for the "South".

2002 GAME RECAP - NORTH 25 SOUTH 1

With the "North" clinging to a one point lead late in the third quarter defensive back Adam Skitsko out of Archbishop Jordan reached into the sky and put the game away as he returned an interception 25 yards for the TD that put his team up 21-13 in front of a new record crowd of 1,435.

This marked the third time in four years that the "North" had been victorious and the fourth year in a row that the "South" has gone home from the game they had dominated in the 90's empty handed.

Things looked good for the "South" early as they opened the scoring on a 27 yard FG only to see the "North" score twice on a 90 yard run by Archbishop Jordan QB Jay Meraw and a 14 yard TD reception by Bellerose slotback T.J. Warren by the end of the 1st quarter. The "South" made in interesting with a 12 yard TD reception by Bishop McNally's Jermaine Campbell late in the half and a 17 yard FG from L.J. Wall out of Ernest Manning early in the third but Skitsko's intereception sealed the day for the "North".

L.C.I. offensive lineman Jeff Perrett was named the "South" M.V.P. while linebacker Brad Leier out of Whitecourt with almost twice as many tackles as anyone else took home "North" M.V.P. honors.

2001 GAME RECAP - NORTH 14 SOUTH 14

The first ever tie in Senior Bowl history as the "North" lead 14-4 with 4 minutes to go only to be caught by a furious "South" rally that tied it up with 1:36 seconds to go on Father Lacombe's Michael Giacalone's 41 yard run after a screen pass.

The "South" opened the scoring in the first half with a 24 yard FG off the foot of Winston Churchill's Matt McDonald. He also added a single later in the half after the "North" went ahead on an amazing 92 yard TD run from Grande Prairie's Jeff Halvorson.

The second half was quiet until Strathcona's Cam Linke hit his teammate Mark Rogers for a 29 yard TD pass with 6 minutes to go in the game to put the "North" up 14-4. This was followed by a 35 yard FG from McDonald then Giacalone's run to tie it up. The "North" had a final chance with 7 seconds left but Sir Winston Churchill's Derek van den Brink blocked the FG attempt from the 22 yard line to preserve the tie.

Linebacker Jason Bobst was named the "North" M.V.P. while quarterback Charles Guedo was the M.V.P for the "South".

2000 GAME RECAP - NORTH 23 SOUTH 22

A thriller as for the first time in the history of the Senior Bowl the game was decided on the last play.

The game started off with a bang as Lord Beaverbrook's Morgan Alexander hauled in an Senior Bowl record 82 yard pass from Bowness' Brian Hill to take the lead on the first play of the game. That was quickly followed by two TD's from the "North's" Willie Shulba out of Archbishop Jordan with a 5 yard run and a 63 yard punt return. Lloydminster's Brad Ollen added a FG and the "North" lead at the half 17-8.

The second half saw the "South" pull ahead with two rushing TD's from Foothills' Kyle Maclean and Luke Mayer out of L.C.I. but the drive of the game came late as Jasper Place's Matt Burrows hauled in two clutch catches on 3rd down to keep the "North's" final drive alive. Sexsmith QB Darrell Moe finished it off with a one yard plunge for the TD on the final play to win 23-22.

For their efforts Burrow's was named the "North" M.V.P. and Mayer was named the "South" M.V.P.
