Foot­ball camp

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - SPORTS -

No Lim­its Foot­ball Club and the Belleville Mi­nor Foot­ball League are hop­ing to put Derek Wen­del over the top in his bid to be­come a pro­fes­sional foot­ball player. The Belleville na­tive, who re­cently fin­shed his fifth year of el­i­gi­bil­ity play­ing quar­ter­back for the Ot­tawa Gee Gee’s, was named Most Valu­able Foot­ball Player of the On­tario Univer­sity Ath­let­ics, as well as a First team OUA All Star, Sec­ond Team All Cana­dian, and run­ner-up for the Hec Crighton Tro­phy for Cana­dian univer­sity foot­ball. Wen­del re­cently at­tended an NFL re­gional com­bine in Mi­ne­sota and spent Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary in Flor­ida do­ing an eight-week train­ing pro­gram with NFL level coaches. Be­ing a stu­dent-ath­lete, Wen­del has no had a chance to work and­make money for this ex­pe­ri­ence, and No lim­its and the BMFL are try­ing to help. So this Satur­day, March 25, a Pre-Sea­son Foot­ball Camp for mi­nor foot­ball play­ers from grades 6 to 9 will be held at the Loy­al­ist Sports Dome from 5-7 p.m. No equip­ment is needed and the cost is $10 per player. The Dome tim has been do­nated by some BMFL teams, and all reg­is­tra­tion fees will be do­nated to go to­wards off-set­ting costs for Wen­del, who will be in at­ten­dance Satur­day.
