Defensive players invited to the under-16 camp include defensive backs Joel Klaassen of the North Surrey Tigers and Josiah Ordough of the Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers, defensive linemen Cole Barron of the Holy Cross Crusaders, Tighe Andreou of the White Rock Titans, Tayvion Johnson of the North Delta Longhorns and Jahnek Rai of the Seaquam Seahawks, and linebackers Cole Barron of Holy Cross and Justin Kular of the Tigers.
