Ridge Meadows Knights football player Liam Cumarasamy has been selected to play in this year’s Border Bowl game, which pits top prospects from B.C. against their counterparts from Alberta.
It’s a great comeback for the Grade 9 from Thomas Haney secondary. He is coming back from a serious injury. In last year’s Starbowl game, just 10 minutes into the contest, he went in for a tackle and severely injured his knee, tearing the ACL.
The injury happened just weeks before a Team B.C. tryout camp weekend, and he was one of only two boys in the area that was selected.
He missed an entire season of football, but in the fall, as soon as he was given the green light from his surgeon, he fought back hard and started training three days a week in Game Ready, a program put on by off-season and retired CFL members, as well as hitting the gym on his own.
• The Border Bowl will be played on May 28 in Vernon.
