Four Sun Players Invited To Lions Camp

Posted in Featured, Sports

Four members of the Okanagan Sun defense have been invited to the BC Lions Evaluation Camp taking place in April.

The Lions will record each player’s height and weight along with bench press, broad jump and vertical.  They will follow the same testing procedures that occur at the CFL and NFL combines.

DL – Jonas Gering – 31 tackles, 2 sacks and a fumble recovery

DB – Brennan Van Nistlerooy – 24 tackles, 2 blocked kicks, 1 sack, 2 interceptions

S – Jack Rush – 33 tackles, 1 blocked kick, 5 batted balls, 4 interceptions, 1 touchdown

LB – Brandon Donkers – 27 tackles, 1 blocked kick, 2 interceptions

This is the third consecutive year the Lions have opened their E-Camp to junior aged players.  Steven Doege, Steven Shott, Bobby Davis, Dan Turek, Sam Looysen and Matt Walker have all competed at this camp in the past.

The Sun will open the 2014 schedule in late July or early August.
