Area Youth Selected to Participate in National All-Star Bowl in Orlando
14 year old Lucas Ferreira of Burlington Ontario was named an Offense-Defense All-American and invited to participate in the 8th-annual Offense-Defense Bowl Week festivities taking place at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, FL.
Lucas will be attending Notre Dame high school next month and is excited to try out for the junior football team as he enters grade 9. His summer football season with the Burlington Bantam Stampeders ended with a bang when they took home the Ontario Football Conference Championship preceded by an almost undefeated season of wins.
Lucas is not unfamiliar with playing football in the USA, the past 3 years he has been selected to play on Team Ontario at the ESPN centre in Disney. He has attended combine/camps in Virginia as a select for Football University’s Top Gun and was recently at the invitation only combine in Indianapolis for the Top 100 National Under Classmen.
The Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl is part of a week-long series of events including the televised, 8th-annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an All-Star football game showcasing 88 of the top high school seniors in the USA and has featured current NFL pros such as Cam Newton, Carlos Dunlap, and Dez Bryant among others before they were collegiate and later professional stars. It is being held the end of this year at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando from December 30 – January 5th.
