Senior year for any high school student is a big milestone with everything in life you’ve always talked about finally coming to a head, but for Bomboir there is a special wrinkle in his story with a move from Esterhazy High School to Melville Comprehensive School for the upcoming season.

Bomboir experienced plenty of success during his time at Esterhazy playing both defensive back and linebacker earning Defensive Player of the Year Award twice while also receiving praise for his positive attitude winning the Sportsmanship Award.

When asked for a couple highlights that spring to mind when he remembers his time at Esterhazy, Bomboir recalls a play where his wouldn’t let his motor stop, chasing down an opposing player 70 yards down field to save a touchdown. Another memory was simply a day to remember. Playing in a provincial game with the Warriors, Bomboir was able to snag three interceptions en route to a sleepless night for the opposing quarterback and a game he will never forget.

Although football is a huge part of life and he will be switching teams this fall, that doesn’t mean everything will change for the teen from Saskatchewan. Bomboir still plans on going into the trades when his life with football is over and also plans to keep up with a myriad of other activities he enjoys during his time away from the field,

“I race motocross and also wake board. I love sports and would say I work harder than the normal 16 year old kid.” says Bomboir.

Heading into his final season of high school football, Bomboir says that the recruiting process is going well and is expecting it to pick up more as the year goes on. In the mean time he does not have to look far for inspiration when going through this big transition year in life with his dad becoming his main source after an accident that proved to him you can come back from anything,

“My dad is the most influential person to me because he broke his back falling off a grain bin, and he came back stronger then ever showing me not to give up.”

In the end, the task at hand may seem daunting to a young kid heading into their final year of high school, but with inspiration and a tireless work ethic, Bomboir is looking to turn his dedication into success both on and off the field at Melville this fall.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
