Hawks take part in all-star football festivities

LONDON, Ont. — Shamawd Chambers scored a touchdown and ran for 84 yards, and Daniel Bishop recorded a team-leading eight tackles, as Team West fell in overtime to Team East 34-27 at the annual Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) East-West Bowl.

Team West was comprised of all-stars from Laurier as well as other schools across Canada in a game that concluded a week-long training camp for the top CFL 2012 draft-eligible players.

Laval’s running back Sebastien Levesque scored a touchdown in the shootout-format of overtime, and Team East concluded the game with a pick off of Team West and Western quarterback Donnie Marshall by Sherbrooke defensive back Philippe Dubuisson-Lebon.

“He was absolutely tremendous,” said Laurier head coach and one of Team West’s coaches, Gary Jeffries of Chambers.

Along with Chambers and Bishop, Laurier defensive back, Shane Burns also participated in the all-star event, recording one tackle.

Mitchell Bosch was also invited, but couldn’t play due to a bum ankle.

Laurier’s fall training camp starts on August 22.
