The London Beefeaters are preparing for their first ever Canadian Bowl and will host the national championship on Saturday afternoon on the campus of Western University.
Head coach Gavin Lake is in his first season at the Beefeaters helm and has guided them to the national final in exciting fashion. In the Ontario Conference finale his club went on the road to face the undefeated St. Clair Fratmen and scored 15 points in the final 1:59 to capture their second straight Conference title. Under his watchful eye eight players were named to the Conference All-Star team and two as All-Canadians with Jordan Fletcher named the Defensive Player of the Year.
Lake is no stranger to the Canadian Bowl as a member of the VI Raiders coaching staff in2008 and 2013 when they played for national gold. He sits down with Ryan Watters to reflect on his days with the Raiders and the magical run the Beefeaters have been on in 2021.
