Letkeman named to Team Canada

The All-Star list from Football Canada’s Canada Cup National Championship tournament, which was held in Moncton, NB, was released Wednesday afternoon, selecting some of the top position players from all of the competing teams in the tournament.  Amongst the names was Eastman Raiders defensive back Brock Letkeman who was the lone representative on the list from Team Manitoba.  Letkeman had a solid performance during the tournament, regularly being asked to cover some of the best receiving threats in the country and holding his own.
Players being named to the Canada Cup All-Star list get an automatic invitation to be a part of the Canadian U18 National team that will travel down to Dallas, TX in February to play against Team USA.
When Team Manitoba announced it’s final roster, which included two other Raiders players, offensive linemen Nick Bezditny and Nikolai Lipkovsky, Letkeman was named as one of the team’s Captains.

 

 

 

 

Brock Letkeman named Team MB Captain for U18

Brock Letkeman, a 3rd year Midget player (Defensive Half Back) was named as one of Team Manitoba’s captains for their U18 team. Congratulations to Nick & Nikolai for making the team!

Midget Players named to Team Manitoba

This was Bezditny’s first year trying out for the team.  Nikolai Lipkovsky was named to the Team Winnipeg East team last year at the U16 Red River Cup, and has been named an Alternate for the U18 Team Manitoba team that will be competing at the Canada Cup National Championship tournament this year.
