Claypool hitting the gridiron in America

Abbotsford Panthers star playing against the continent's best in his age group

The football season isn’t quite over for Abbotsford Panthers star Chase Claypool.

The Grade 12 student has been invited to participate in a pair of prestigious showcase football games, and is expected to play in both.

From Dec. 28 to Jan. 2, Claypool heads to Daytona Beach, Fla. to practise and play in the All-American Offense Defense Bowl. Past alumni at the game include: Cam Newton, Dez Bryant and Earl Thomas.

Claypool is also scheduled to play at the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl on Jan. 16 at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The game features some of the top high school talent from all over the U.S.

Earlier this month, Claypool capped off a stellar B.C. high school football career by being named AA player of the year.
