ROBERTSON PLAYER OF THE WEEK
 
Congrats to Tommy Robertson (NWSS grad 2014) who was the BCFC Offensive Player of the Week for week 8. The former U of Windsor Lancer and now Langley Rams QB was 16 of 27 for 242 yards and 3 TDs in a win over the VI Raiders. Robertson was a late addition to the Rams this season and is now 2-1 as a starter, while the team is 6-3 and has clinched a playoff berth.

ALUMNI FACE OFF
 
Michael Adetola (NWSS grad 2012) of St F of X and Jordan Chin (NWSS grad 2103) of Concordia, faced off this past weekend. Chin's Concordia Stingers took the win at home 17-11. 

HELP WANTED
 
With the season just around the corner, the Varsity Hyacks are looking for help in a number of areas off the field. The most pressing need is for additional game night staff and poster distribution. If you are interested please contact Barb Drake at: bdrake1@shaw.ca or coach Lalji to get more details. But there are a number of smaller roles also available. Our program has always received outstanding parent and community support, so we expect 2016 will be no different. We look forward to hearing from you.

 HOMECOMING ANOTHER HUGE SUCCESS

Despite the wet weather, Homecoming 2016 presented by Key West Ford was a another big success. A crowd well in access of 1500 watched the Hyacks defeat Carson Graham 51-0. The event also included the Save on Foods Family Fun Zone and Pre-game Party, while CTV Sports was also in attendance, hosting a portion of their sportcast from Mercer Stadium. At halftime, NWSS band turned into a marching band for a day and did a fantastic job entertaining those in attendance. Andrew Thind was this year's winner of a pre-owned Ford Focus in our raffle, courtesy of Key West Ford.
 
Hyacks Football would like to thank our presenting sponsor Key West Ford, along with media sponsors the New Westminster Record, CTV and Virgin Radio 94.5 FM, for their continued support of Homecoming. 
 
On the field, the Hyacks didn't disappoint as they dominated Carson Graham by a 51-0 score, topping the 50-point mark for the 2nd consecutive game. Sammy Sidhu was named the Player of the Game with 147 yards and 2 TDs on just 7 carries. Lucas Sabau also had a strong game with 114 yards and a TD, while Finn Stark and Juan Cespedes scored their first ever TDs. Sarban Sidhu was named the Dairy Queen Lineman of the Game, while defensively Connor Pattison recorded a season-high 13 tackles.
