BC Community Football Association honors Chase Claypool of Abbotsford with The Game – Abbotsford News

The BC Community Football Association recognizes Abbotsford’s Chase Claypool with an honors game later this month at Chilliwack’s Exhibition Stadium.

The event, called The Game, will feature six teams of three different age levels competing against each other.

Last month, community team players from across the province were “drafted” by either the BC Steelers or the BC Fighting Irish in their age group. Claypool played college football for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and currently plays for the NFL‘s Pittsburgh Steelers.

Insertion camps begin Saturday (April 30) and Sunday (May 1) at Mission Sports Park in Mission.

The match takes place on Saturday, May 28 in Chilliwack. The young prospects game starts at 9 a.m., the junior prospects start at 12:15 p.m. and the senior prospects hit the gridiron at 3:30 p.m.

All matches will be broadcast on the VBN Sports YouTube channel.

Claypool told VBN Sports that he might be there for The Game, but if he can’t be there personally he will watch it live. He also said there would also be ways to support his charity Chasing Hope at the event.

Chasing Hope is an organization he started with his mother Jasmine Claypool to help raise funds and awareness for youth mental health and suicide prevention.

Claypool caught two touchdowns and 860 yards for the Steelers in his sophomore season. He is under contract with the team until the 2023 season.
