The annual Senior Bowl, held by Football Sask, was played in Regina at Mosaic Stadium on Sunday. Team South, which included four members of the WCS Eagles roster, would come out on top with a 58-12 victory.  

The Senior Bowl is held every year and features the top 80 graduating players in the province – 40 from the south, and 40 from the north. The game also includes a three-day camp.  

The Weyburn players selected for the game were quarterback Conner Kerr, along with running back Owen Istace and wider receiver Isaiah Sanderson. On the defensive side of the ball was lineman Chace Kradovill. The coaching staff for the South included three coaches from Weyburn – Jody Kerr, Kyle Paterson, and Rob Umbach.  

Team South would take an early lead, scoring two touchdowns in the opening three minutes on a pair of passes from Kerr, connecting with some receivers from the Regina Riffel Royals. The North would cut into the lead in the second quarter but the Team South would score another touchdown on a pass from Regina’s Brady Vindevogel.  

Kerr would come back into the game and run in another touchdown and then led a drive that would result in a field goal, with the South taking a 31-9 lead into the locker room at halftime. 

In the second half, the strong play from the South continued with a touchdown and a field goal in the third. The 41-12 lead would be extended in the fourth with Kerr throwing another touchdown pass, this time to Tanner Donovel from Miller Collegiate in Regina. A defensive touchdown and a field goal would round out the scoring.  

Kerr finished the game going 11-for-16, with 193 yards and three touchdowns. He also had two carries for 19 yards and a touchdown. His efforts would see him named the South MVP for the game, as well as the top QB/RB for Team South. He is the first player from Weyburn Comprehensive to win the MVP award since Kelly Trithart in 1985, which was the first year the Senior Bowl was played.  

Istace would get the ball eight times, racking up 43 yards on the ground. Sanderson would have one catch for 33 yards, and Kradovill recorded two tackles in the game.
