Mustangs athletes prepare for upcoming ABC Bowl

Coach Jeremy Nelson - When you think of springtime sports in Pincher Creek you might think of baseball, soccer, rugby or even softball. Not for a select group, spring sports means football, football, football. Yes you read that right football.  A handful of Mustang football players are soon to be reading playbooks, learning the new plays, hitting the gridiron and practicing all weekend. Not only that, but some local coaches will be right there beside them.

Brody Walter, Hayden Many Grey Horses, Tanner Wallace, Justin Nelson, Gus Halibert, Trent Metcalfe, Connor Ney, Devon Clarke and Jaegar Hann are taking part in this year's ABC Bowl. They will soon be travelling to Lacombe to participate in an all weekend long practice. The above players are divided among four different teams, depending on age and skill. After the weekend long practice the players are expected to hone and develop their newly found skills and plays. Local coaches Chris Ney and Brian Murray will also be there to guide some of the fine young men mentioned above.

Then on May 27 the whole crew will be at the University of Lethbridge starting at 9:00 am to play four games of football, against British Columbia, and everyone is encouraged to attend.
