PSC Broncs end season with new chapter

The Ponoka Secondary Campus senior Broncs football team has written a new chapter as we end our season.

The team finished fifth in the league and eighth in the province within the Tier IV rankings.

This season was by far the most intense, as every game was close in score and the importance of the games grew with each week.

Football in Ponoka has been changing. over the past six years in particular, as we were able to see our first group of graduating players that were able to start with the Bantam Broncs team in Grade 7 and play a full six years of football under the program.

Congratulations goes out to our graduating players: Luke Bonnett, Connor Stiles, Anis Musiime, Mathias Sandin, Joel Hollingsworth, Jaden Young, Tade Tonneson, Erik Mathieu, Karsen Stott, Noah Bunz, Ben Kroening and Curtis French for completing their Grade 12 season.

All of these young men will go on to be amazing role models in this world, as they will carry our Broncs Pride with them outside of high school.

A special congratulations and thank you to Luke Bonnett, Curtis French and Connor Stiles, who have all had successful football career. I am proud to say you have been a part of the program for six years. We can’t wait to see what’s next for all of you. Thank you for all you have done for Ponoka Football over the years.

I would also like to congratulate Joel Hollingsworth, Luke Bonnett, Connor Stiles and Tade Tonneson on being selected for the 2019 all star team.

The team would also like to make a special mention to Richard Hinkley, Calvin David, Hunter Hart and Kelly McChenney.

Richard has been our scorekeeper since the program has started (and has never missed a game).

Calvin volunteered his time and business to help be our trainer to support our players with injuries.

Hunter helped us out this year by filming all of our games, which gave us a competitive edge having film to review.

Kelly has always announced our games which brings life into our stands.

Without these volunteers we wouldn’t be able to have such a successful program.

The continued support over the years is amazing and the time, love you have invested over the years does not go unnoticed.

Thank you for all that you do for Ponoka football and athletics.
