2 More Warriors Named NCAFA Players of the Week
It’s happened again. Two Bell Warriors Bantam players (ages 15-16) have been named NCAFA Players of the Week for Week 5 of the 2013 tackle football season. Dylan Parry has been named NCAFA’s Overall and Offensive Player of the Week on the strength of a jaw-dropping performance which saw Dylan score 3 TD’s. Sheldon Thomas, also of the Bell Warriors, was named NCAFA’s Defensive Player of the Game in Week 5 due to his numerous tackles and interception which was returned for a touchdown in the 57-0 Warrior win Sept 21st against the Kanata Knights. In addition to Dylan and Sheldon’s honours, week two saw Warriors’ Quinn Stewart (QB) and Andrew Beattie (LB) take home similar honours (both from Richmond). In week three, Stittsville’s Kurtis Schaefer also won NCAFA’s Player of the Week.
“I’ve had the privilege to coach Sheldon every second year that he’s been with the Warriors since his first year at tyke (8 to 10 year olds). He’s always has a smile and has always been willing to do the jobs no one else would. He’s a great team player. Dylan Parry is one of the most modest athletes I’ve coached despite the fact that he may be one of the best receivers I’ve ever been involved with and now he has evolved into a jaw-dropping running back. He’s an undeniable talent and like Sheldon, he is a pleasure to coach. They reflect what NCAFA and the Warriors are all about and I couldn’t be happier for either boy for being this week’s NCAFA Player of the Week.” – Paul Stewart, Bell Warriors President.
