Second year defensive lineman Josh Lenz of the Edmonton Huskies helped his team to a 6-2 record last year and a place in the Prairie Conference finale.
In the regular season he collected 10 tackles, had a pair of assisted stops, two sacks, a knockdown and a forced fumble.
Believe it or not this defensive lineman would love to spend a day with a quarterback if he could choose any current or former NFL star. Watch what Josh has to say about it.

Paul Mravik of the GTA Grizzlies played on both sides of the line in 2019 and was solid.
Over on the defensive line he made 12 tackles, assisted on a pair of stop, had two sacks and recovered a fumble.
At 6’5 Mravik was an important part of the Grizzlies offensive line as well giving his quarterback time to throw the ball down the field.
He goes Under the Helmet with Ryan Watters to talk about football and how many languages he can speak.
Football Canada is excited to announce a new national virtual tournament this summer.
From July 4-11th, the 2020 Madden Canada Cup will take centre stage. Overall, the tournament will feature four separate divisions:
Three separate Regional Qualifying Rounds will kick off the tournament on July 4-5, 2020. The Eastern Round will consist of participants from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. Meanwhile, players from Ontario and Quebec will compete in the Central Round. Finally, the Western Round will see competitors from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and British Columbia. Specific times for the rounds will be released closer to the dates.
From each division, the final 64 participants move on to compete in the Madden Canada Cup National Championship Weekend on July 10-11, 2020. It will be live streamed via Football Canada’s YouTube Channel. Throughout the broadcast, special guests will join the organization virtually, including coaches and sports administrators.
“We are incredibly excited to be hosting our first nationwide Madden Canada Cup tournament,” commented Aaron Geisler, Football Canada’s Director of Sport. “The hope is we can bring all of our athletes, coaches, parents, fans, and avid gamers together to experience some football over the summer.”
The rivalry of the Football Canada Cup and its history runs deep, and we hope that we can provide some of that healthy inter-provincial rivalry in this format and crown a champion to represent that provincial pride.”
