Braves ace Jeff Morrison will be joined by teammates Tim Archie, Travis Tom, Dakota Andy, Bob Andy, Brian Hookimawillene and the trio of Chris, Austin and Ryan Jack.
The rest of the roster that will be coached by Fort Frances’ Jim Fowler includes Nick Hunter from the RRDFL’s Beef’s Warriors based in Couchiching First Nation, Big Island product Jaden Gustafson of the Dawson Tigers, and out-of-province addition Jeffrey (Bo) Thomas from Peguis First Nation in Manitoba.
