Several Airdrie and area players will take part in Football Alberta’s U16 Bantam Showcase in Red Deer over the May long weekend.

The players, who compete for the Airdrie Raiders in the Calgary Bantam Football Association, have been named to the rosters for the Calgary Metro teams, with three Raiders on each team.

Seth Horwood from Airdrie along with Aaron Nay and Gabriel Osenda from Rocky View will all play for the Calgary Metro Dinos while Ryder Frampton and Jakob Hertz, both from Airdrie, and Soren Layton of Calgary who plays on the Raiders squad will all suit up for the Calgary Colts.

The Executive Director of Football Alberta Tim Enger says additional teams for the Bantam Showcase will be selected over the April 22-24 weekend in Edmonton and Central, and in Southern Alberta on the April 29-30 weekend.
