The countdown begins to CanadaFootballChat.com’s Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) on the April 29th weekend at Tim Horton’s Field in Hamilton. In the days leading up to the OPC, CFC will preview the teams and players participating in the big event.

Sekilas Doxtator is enjoying his experience with the OPC.

“So far it seems to be going very well, all the coaches are nice and very knowledgeable about the game,” said Doxtator.

Doxtator started his career at 8 years old in the LMFA (London Minor Football Association).  During his time in LMFA, Doxtator was fortunate to win the city championship six years in a row. Sekilas earned Player of the Game for the All-Star game against Windsor. He also received Best Rookie, Outstanding Lineman and the All-Star award for the Forest City Thunderbirds (LMFA) in which Sekilas added, “Forest City Thunderbirds kept me busy during the summers”.

Sekilas attends South Collegiate Institute High School. In the two seasons Sekilas has played high school ball, his team won the championship both years. Doxtator suits up as an offensive lineman (right tackle) and also plays on the defensive line (nose guard, tackled and end).

“I chose to play offensive line because I had never played that position before and wanted to try something new,” mentioned Doxtator.

In previous years, Sekilas had just played defensive line but his coach thought he would be a good fit on the o-line.  Also, Sekilas’ team needed more offensive lineman.

Sekilas’ favorite moment from last season was in the city championship game.

“My favorite moment from last season was going undefeated and winning the city championship by 1 point with 4.6 seconds left in the game,” said Doxtator.

For his workouts, Sekilas attends Powerhouse Training Systems and also workouts after school in the weight room. Additionally, Doxtator tries to maintain his weight for football.

Sekilas is looking forward to the OPC for many reasons.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to play against the other top players in Canada, working with new coaches, gaining knowledge and exposure,” said Doxtator.
