Bears Participate at Mac Camp

The St. Benedict Bears football team recently had their starting offensive line participate at the McMaster University “Up Front Offensive Line Developmental Camp”. St. Benedict players Erick Lessard, Carter Long, Troy Kingsbury, Emilio Frometa, and Spencer Dailey, all took part in the event.

Bears Head Coach, Frank Rocca, also attended the camp as a guest coach. Rocca said the camp was a great experience for his troops. “To have your starting 5 attend a camp of this quality is tremendous. This group, which has 4 SDSSAA all stars, including lineman of the year, could be taking time off in the off season. Instead they choose to come down here and improve. That says a lot about our kids. There are plenty of drills and skills that they pick up, plus they are marketing themselves to play football after they are done at St. Benedict.”

One player that has broke new ground is towering offensive tackle Erick Lessard. Lessard was able to become the 1st player from Sudbury to crack the starting line up for the Greater Toronto Area all-star team. Lessard played well for team GTA againstt the Golden Horseshoe all star team, but cam short losing in the end by a score of 11-7. Lessard still came out a winner as he displayed his abilities againstt the best talent from southern Ontario, in front of coaches from all over the country.
