The West­shore Rebels of Lang­ford Bri­tish Columbia are on their way to the Na­tional Ju­nior Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship, and two for­mer Drumheller Ti­tans bol­ster their ros­ter.

Ai­den Enns and Eric Seiller joined the Rebels for their first sea­son of Ju­nior Foot­ball and they find them­selves in the win­ner’s cir­cle. The team plays in the Ju­nior Bri­tish Columbia Foot­ball Con­fer­ence. On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 29, the team squared off ver­sus the Okana­gan Sun in the league cham­pi­onship.

The Rebels ran up a 32-point lead. A late rally by the Suns put 21-points on the board but it wasn’t enough as the Rebels won the Cullen Cup 32-21.

While Seiller did not dress for the fi­nal, Enns saw quite a bit of ac­tion.

“I am all over the place on spe­cial teams so I played the whole game,” said Enns.

This win put them into the Cana­dian Bowl, the na­tional cham­pi­onship, and the road doesn’t get any eas­ier. On Oc­to­ber 30, the Saska­toon Hill­tops de­feated the Cal­gary Colts 43-31 for a berth into the fi­nal. The Hill­tops are no strangers to the cham­pi­onship, win­ning the last two.

“We’ve watched as much film as we can on them from pre­vi­ous games, but we don’t know too much,” said Enns.

It has been a great year for Ai­den Enns, #35, along with Eric Seiller are on the West­shore Rebels of the BC Foot­ball Con­fer­ence. Af­ter win­ning the pro­vin­cial ti­tle, this week­end they will be tak­ing on the Saska­toon Hill­tops for the na­tional cham­pi­onship. the team, and the two new play­ers, who, in their first sea­son were part of a Cin­derella story team that rein­vented it­self.

“I am most proud of the fact that we were able to turn a 2-8 team into a na­tional cham­pi­onship con­tender. That is the big­gest thing,” said Enns. “Last sea­son the only won two games, but then this sea­son we kind of took the league by storm, and no one re­ally ex­pected us to do that.” The Cham­pi­onship is this Satur­day, Novem­ber 12 at 1 p.m., Pa­cific Time, hosted by the Rebels.

I am most proud of the fact that we were able to turn a 2-8 team into a na­tional cham­pi­onship con­tender. That is the big­gest thing.”
