The line up for Football Alberta’s U18 team has been announced, and grade 10 student Kelton Bailey from Peace River is one of the 40 players selected. The receiver was one of 325 students who took part in the Talent ID camps in April, and moved on to the group of 110 who attended the Final Selection camp over the weekend. Bailey says he is looking forward to competing with the team at the Football Canada Cup, which takes place this July in Saskatoon.
“It’s very exciting, I mean, not just the fact of making the team, but getting the chance and the opportunity to compete with players that are at that high of a level. That’s something that really keeps me going, is just getting to compete against high level players and stuff like that.”
Bailey is the only player representing northwest Alberta on the team this year, and is the first Peace Region receiver to ever make the line up.
