Two USports players headed to East-West Shrine Game down south

The 2017 East-West Shrine Game held on January 20th features some of the top collegiate football players in North America generally comprised of NCAA players, plus two USport players.

This year, University of Alberta offensive lineman CFC100 Mark Korte and University of Montreal receiver CFC100 Régis Cibasu have been selected to this prestigious event.

A Spruce Grove, Alberta native, Canada West named Korte as the conference Most Outstanding Lineman for 2017. Korte is a throwback who plays the game as it’s supposed to be played, coupled this with the fact that he’s extremely athletic for his size and there is no reason why he shouldn’t compete at a high level against all NCAA competition.

Cibasu on the other hand, was instrumental in the Montreal Carabins 2014 Vanier Cup victory and was name MVP of the game as a freshman. He is a well known commodity in Quebec as he has been dominating at every level of football including juvenile, Cégep, and USport. Cibasu looks like a tight end, but plays receiver.

It will be interesting to see how he used at the Shrine game – will it be as a true receiver, a slot receiver, or possibly as an H-back? Wherever they decide to deploy him, there’s no doubt he will showcase his ability to make plays and win 50/50 balls.
