Led by CJFL record setter, running back Andrew Pocrnic and a suffocating defence, the Langley Rams defeated the Westshore Rebels 35-12 to capture their second straight Cullen Cup title in 2019. Despite falling short of the ultimate goal of a CJFL Canadian Bowl title, these Rams will be commended for representing their community and the entire province of British Columbia with outstanding pride and determination.
They are the recipients of the BC Lions Orange Helmet Award as junior football champions in BC.
The Orange Helmet Awards are an annual marquee event on the BC Lions calendar, with proceeds supporting the development of amateur football in the province of British Columbia. It celebrates BC provincial champions at all levels of amateur football, pioneers of the sport, coaches and lifetime contributors to the game. To date the event has raised over $1,000,000 for amateur football and we salute the players, coaches and volunteers who share our passion for our great game.

For the second straight season in 2019 Valley Huskers’ returner Brandon Poulin was named a CJFL All-Canadian after another outstanding individual performance.
As a receiver he hauled in a CJFL high 61 passes for 585 yards and six touchdowns.
Each time he had the ball in his hands he was a major threat for the Huskers offence or special teams. He ran back 45 punts for 392 yards, along with 29 kick returns for 601 yards, an average of 20.7.
Back in 2018, his first All-Canadian season, he returned 60 kicks for a total of 950 yards and a 93 yard return for a major.
He also led the CJFL that year with 63 receptions for 878 yards and five touchdowns.

The CJFL is focused on returning to play in 2021 and continue to plan for a full season leading up to the Canadian Bowl National Championship.
The cancellation of the 2020 season affected all of our players but most significantly those athletes that are nearing the end of their eligibility. The decision has been made to extend the eligibility of those players 22 years of age in 2020 (born 1998) for one additional season in 2021. Furthermore for those players 21 years of age in 2020 (born 1999) they have been granted one additional year of eligibility as well for the 2022 season. The CJFL remains committed to players that have chosen the CJFL as their long-term development path. To be eligible for this extended eligibility, affected players must have been on a 2019 CJFL roster, or registered with the CJFL (including those signed to a letter of intent) prior to August 6, 2020.
The CJFL and our 18 member teams continue to work towards a successful 2021 season.
