With my son Jordan playing for Team Canada in the 2009 version of the tournament I attended six games in Canton OH. It was very good football and a great event. USA Football and the International Federation of American Football (supported with NFL money) did every thing first class. I have no doubt this year’s participating Gryphon players – John Rush & A’dre Fraser – will have a great time and may consider this one of the best things that they have ever been a part of.
Rush and Fraser will become the fourth and fifth Gryphons to play for Team Canada. Jordan Duncan was Team Canada’s starting safety in 2009. Jedd Gardner and Nick FitzGibbon played for the Senior National Team at the 2011 IFAF Senior World event in Austria. Kyle Walters was a member of the 2009 coaching staff.
I encourage every one of you to watch the games, and cheer for Rush, Fraser and Team Canada. Links for all of the tournaments games, including today’s contest versus Sweden can be found here.
