Updates...

The 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 behind.

Congratulations 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!

In Memorium
Words 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.

Congratulations to Chargers General Manager and driving force Susan Morgan.  Susan has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her many contributions to the Edmonton community!  The medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a tangible way for Canada to honour Her Majesty for her service to this country. At the same time, it serves to honour significant contributions and achievements by Canadians.

All of the Charger teams had good seasons playing in Tier I in 2012.  The Atom team had a fun year and made it to the CDMFA Tier I Semi-Finals.  The Peewees made it to the CDMFA Tier I Finals and the Bantams won the CDMFA Tier I Championship.

Congratulations to Chargers Bantam Head Coach Darrell Jorgensen on being named Team1260's Coach of the Week!  A well deserved recognition... Thanks for all your great work Darrell!

Congratulations to all the players who have been named United Cycle Player of the Week!  Chargers named this year include Curtis Meidl, Emmanual Loggale, Shamar Booth, Tyler Duguid, David Lezama and Lwal Uguak.  Many thanks to United Cycle for sponsoring these great awards at the Peewee and Bantam levels.

Charger Alum and current BC Lion J.R. LaRose was in town recently and took time out to meet a couple of current Chargers.  He also shared a look at his 2011 Grey Cup ring.  Check out the size of that ring!

Congratulations to Cleyon Laing, a former Charger who was selected ninth overall in the 2012 CFL draft by the Torono Argonauts.

What a year 2011 has been for all the Chargers teams!  Beginning with a Tier II Championship for the Midget team in the spring and followed up by great seasons by all three other levels.  The Atoms won the Tier I CDMFA and Provincial Champship, the Peewees won the CDMFA Tier II Championship and were Provincial Finalists, and the Bantams wrapped up their season as CDMFA Tier I Finalists.

Congratulations to our General Manager and all around force of nature, Susan Morgan.  Susan recieved an Award of Excellence from the City of Edmonton for her hard work and devotion to the sports community in the city! 

2010 was a good year for the Chargers teams.  The Midgets were CDMFA Tier II finalists, the Bantams won the CDMFA and Provincial Tier II Championship, the Peewees won the CDMFA Tier I Championship and were Provincial Tier I finalists, and the Atoms were CDMFA and Provincial Tier I finalists.  Congratulations to all on a fun and successful year!

2009 was a banner year for Chargers teams.  It started off with a Tier I Championship for the Midget team in the spring.  The younger kids followed up with a Tier II Championship at Atom, a Tier I Provincial Championship at Peewee and an appearance in the Tier I City Semifinals for the Bantams.  Thanks to all the coaches and volunteers whose hard work helped to make this possible.
