The boys up in Canada have been proving every year that their brand of High School Football is as good as any their brothers in the State’s are laying down. At the Northwest Elite Camp every year we have been seeing the emergence of that fact as several players have come the last 3 or 4 years and showed out. In Vancouver, British Columbia they love their Football for sure and the Pro and College scene is alive. So too is the High School action and their stadium lights crank up on Friday Night just like ours do.
This year a bus load of the best from Canada are coming down I-5 for the Northwest Elite Football Camp with plans to leave having proven they deserve to be recruited on an equal level as the US athletes are. Leading that charge is Coach Eddie Ferg from Air Raid Academy Football who has a private coaching academy and is passionate about developing the Canadian prospects to the top tier.
“These kids can play and they are getting better very year. Colleges from all over are interested these days in our top guys and I know they compete on par with the boys from the US,” said Ferg. “This camp is a really great opportunity for the boys to compete in front of all these College coaches and we would not miss this event for the world.”
Up to 15 of the best in British Columbia are coming down to the Northwest Elite Football Camp. Here are just a few of the athletes Ferg is coaching with some analysis of them from given by the coach.
