fter another tough road trip the Huskers are preparing for their final three games, two at home and one away. Although the statistics sheets don’t have any check marks in the win column, there have been many check marks in other notable column, there have been many check marks in other notable columns.

From last year’s team, Josh Hayden,a return specialist , is off to Simon Fraser University; Kris Bush (db) and Ty DeRayos (fb) signed with Concordia University; Tanner Borowicz (dend turned oline) is with the Calgary Dinos;Reid McMorris (oline) is off to the University of Manitoba; and just recently Big Mike Wiens (dline) is going to McGill University. These are all young men who are winners because of their hard work and dedication, and the hard work and dedication of many volunteers and training staff who make up the support team.

“We know we haven’t had the wins we had hoped for this year, and that’s disappointing. Everyone has worked so hard and shown such dedication” says Moe Agagnier, GM. “But we’re working with one of the youngest teams in the country and our goal is to build good citizens both on and off the field. To that end we have been very successful. We have four tough games left in the season and it would be great to have the grandstand full of supporters cheering our team on,” he says. “Our boys will be giving one hundred and ten percent as usual and who knows?”

The Valley Huskers Football Club is pleased to announce that, with support from the Coqualeetza Cultural Education Centre Association, they will be honouring three local First Nations athletes at the next home game. “We are proud to be able to recognise these gentlemen who have each made valuable contributions to the community” says Jack Covey President of the Club.


This will be the second last game of the regular season and we will be playing the Westshore Rebels from Victoria. We challenge all the football fans in the Valley to come out to Exhibition Field on September 27th at 1:00pm and show your support for our team and these fine First Nations athletes.

Presale tickets are available at the Coqualeetza Cultural Education Centre, 8528 Ashwell Rd, Chilliwack. Ph 604-858-9431
