Out of approximately 400 hopefuls, 13 athletes from Weyburn and surrounding area were selected to be part of the South Sask Selects football 11u, 12u, 14u and varsity teams.
What that means for these hardworking youth, is that they will be participating in the 7th annual Pigskin International Tournament in San Antonio, Texas from February 20th to the 25th of this year.
This is a huge opportunity for these young athletes and they are more than excited about it. You can learn more about the tournament and fundraiser in the audio interview with Ben Michel (Varsity SSS Team) and Cash Cuthbert (14u SSS Team) below.
