OFSAA Football Bowl Festival 2017: The Bowls are set, who plays who at Tim Horton’s field

(Nov. 24, 2017) – Eighteen of the best high school football teams representing 17 regions from across Ontario will descend on Hamilton’s Tim Hortons Field, home to the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats.  Games are scheduled daily from Monday, Nov. 27 to Wednesday, Nov. 29.

Most teams that have qualified are ranked in CanadaFootballChat.com’s National Top 50 teams including No. 1 ranked London South, No. 5 ranked Hamilton St. Thomas More and No. 6 ranked Newmarket Huron Heights. Among the stars to watch include Thunder Bay’s James Basalyga, who had 3 TDs and 2 interceptions vs. Hammarskjold in the Superior Schools Championship; Michael Chris-Ike, a highly recruited running back out of Hamilton’s St. Thomas More who scored 6 TDs in GHAC semi-finals and Courtice Holy Trinity Titan’s Garrett Wannack, a 6’5”, 310 lb offensive tackle destined for the Laurier Golden Hawks in the OUA.

The Golden Horseshoe Bowl includes a “Drumline Throwdown Presented by Fresh Radio” at half-time featuring Welland Notre Dame and Ontario’s defending drumline champion Hamilton St. Mary’s.  “We’re very excited to participate in the OFSAA Football Bowl games as we’ve developed our program over the past 5 years”, offered Deeanne Laalo, drumline conductor. Bands, drumlines, cheerleaders, current and past CFL stars, legendary coaches, and celebrity guests colour all 3 days of action. We’ll also see over 100 coaches and scouts representing 27 Canadian universities looking for future stars.
