Rimbey highschool football players make all-star team

A six-man all-star football team comprised of several Rimbey players trounced their opponents.

A six-man all-star football team comprised of several Rimbey players trounced their opponents in a rousing match at McMann stadium in Calgary, recently.

Head coach Bill Bramfield said the game saw the skills of all-star players in the north division pitted against all-star players from the south division.

The north division all-stars, which included six Rimbey players, coach Bramfield and assistant coach Jared Robertson came from behind 25–16 to win the game 60-35.

“We made half time adjustments,” said Bramfield. “The boys did a good job. It is a strong team.”

The all-star rooster includes Rimbey players Kyle Goodspeed, Travis Hunt, Lane Franklin, Bryce Sargeant, Cory Cech, Carson Lukocs, Doug Buist and team captain, Randy Maconochie.

Rhett Bramfield is the team runner.

Doug Buist, who made three interceptions during the game, was named the most valuable player and Carson Lukocs scored two touch- downs.

Bramfield said this year marked the first ever all-star provincial game and he is confident it will become an annual event.

He said the teams practiced together during the weekend before coming together for the game held on May 18.

Now the all-star game is behind them and the Spartans are already on the practice field, gearing up for an exhibition game against Breton in Breton on June 12.

The Rimbey High School football team has proved themselves to be a force to be reckoned with on the field.

For the last two years they have been provincial winners and have not lost a game in that time frame.

But Bramfield doesn’t believe in focusing on past successes, but wants the Spartans to look ahead and continue to be a champion football team.

Next year the Spartans will lose all-star players Randy Maconochie, Doug Buist and Lane Franklin as the boys are now Grade 12 students.

However, Bramfield said the team will forge ahead and new players are always adding force and strength on the field.

“We plan to be competitive again. We’ve had a good run, but now it’s all about what’s in front of us.”
