GW Graham defensive back/wideout Emerson Smith is one of five local football players invited to Las Vegas in late January for the High Roller International Showdown.
Team BC announced late last week the final rosters for three teams that will make the journey.
GWG offensive lineman Liam McCormick also made the grade at the U-18 level after impressing at an early-December evaluation camp.
The U-16 squad is bolstered by two more Grizzlies, linebacker Von Richardson and offensive lineman Jake Troyan.
The Grade 8 team has one local player, pulled from the Chilliwack Minor Football ranks, with Josh Janssen competing for snaps at quarterback.
Janssen has been in the Chilliwack Giants system for the last five years, switching from wide receiver to QB two seasons ago. His coaches say he is a natural leader with a calm demeanor and high football IQ.
