to the Midget team on a great season. They made it all the way to
the Tier I Championship game where they lost a very close game to a
great team from Lloydminster. Congrats also go to the Red Dogs on
their championship season.
Edmonton football community lost a close friend last week. "Big"
Al Park passed away after courageously battling an aggressive form of
ALS. Al and his family have been part of the Chargers family for
many years and we extend our deepest condolences to those he left
to players and staff at all levels. 2013 ended on a high note
with all three teams making it to Tier I playoffs and the Peewees
winning the Provincial Championship!
cannot describe what Brock Jacobs meant to the football community in
Alberta for his good nature, commitment to fairness, and hard
work. He has never wavered in his support and devotion to minor
football in the Calgary area since he first got involved in the 1970’s,
and that community will notice his loss the most. However,
football was not the only thing that defined the man. He was a
great husband and father, an honest businessman, and a very well
thought of person to all he met. Brock passed away
peacefully on November 2, 2013 surrounded by his family.
Falls will never be the same without him.

achievements by Canadians.
