Last season Brendan Osborne and the crew over at Shaw stopped by so he could suit up for practice.
Brendan got up close and personal to what its like to be a member of the Okanagan Sun. Check out the two videos below...
The Okanagan Sun congratulate safeties Brennan Van Nistelrooy and Jack Rush who were this evening named to the Canadian Junior Football League defensive All Canadian Team.
The hard hitting Rush wrapped up his junior career this past season after playing with the Sun the last two years after joining the club out of the University of Acadia. The leader of the Sun defense, Jack had a reputation as one of the hardest hitters and most intelligent players in the conference.
Van Nistelrooy was the Sun’s rookie of the year in 2011 and played in 2012 with the University of Alberta. The Sun was buoyed by the return this season of the grad of Catholic Central High School in Lethbridge. The rest of the conference remembered him well as he was recently named the top defensive back in the BCFC.
Congratulations to Jack, Brennan and Devon Kozar who was yesterday named to the offensive All Canadian Team.
Congratulations to Okanagan Sun offensive lineman Devon Kozar (Portage La Prairie Collegiate) on his selection to the 2013 Canadian Junior Football League All Canadian Team!
Kozar, who just wrapped up his third and final season of junior eligibility with the Sun was an unquestioned leader of the team this season. A defensive lineman by trade, Devon made the move to left tackle this season in order to help his team where it needed him most.
Devon's presence on the field and in the locker room will be greatly missed next season. So much so in fact, that head coach Shane Beatty has offered him a spot on the coaching staff in 2014.
