The defending BC Conference champion VI Raiders are entering their second full season under head coach Doug Hocking.
The Raiders surprised most during the CJFL playoffs last season going on the road to beat both the Okanagan Sun and top ranked Westshore Rebels. The Cullen Cup champs then flew to Saskatoon for a date with the Hilltops who ended their playoff run and season.
This year the Raiders will no doubt once again contend for the BC Conference title trying to prove last season was not a fluke.
Coach Hocking talks with Ryan Watters as the Raiders prepare to open the season on Sunday August 5 when they welcome the Valley Huskers to town.
