The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Pa­trick Ko­lafa

I like the fact you get to meet new kids and the in­ten­sity level is very high.” Raiden Ki­pling

Two Drumheller Ti­tans will be rep­re­sent­ing Zone 2 at the Al­berta Sum­mer games. Mar­shall John­ston, 15, and Raiden Ki­pling, 15, made the Al­berta Sum­mer Games squad. They at­tended try­outs in Air­drie and Oko­toks.

Mar­shall is in his third year play­ing for the Ti­tans. He is play­ing line­backer at the games. He is look­ing for­ward to the ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We are play­ing peo­ple in our own age group, it seems a lit­tle more fair,” Mar­shall tells The Mail. “They say it is the best of the best so it will be chal­leng­ing.”

Raiden plays cor­ner­back for the Ti­tans but will be play­ing Line­backer at the games.

“I like the fact you get to meet new kids and the in­ten­sity level is very high,” he said. The two will have some fa­mil­iar faces on the bench as they play. Drumheller Se­nior Ti­tans head coach Ken Fourier will be the de­fen­sive coach, and sec­ond year Ti­tans coach Dale John­ston will be look­ing af­ter the lineback­ers.

Dale is look­ing for­ward to the op­por­tu­nity.

“It is a great chance to learn, I am still re­ally new to this, and I get to work with the best of the best at this age group,” said Dale.

The Al­berta Sum­mer Games are July 8- 11 in Le­duc.
