The WHSFL awards banquet was held on Thursday night in Winnipeg where Muskie quarterback Brady Meeks was awarded the Bomber Alumni Most Outstanding Player in Currie Division ('A').

With that award comes a $1,000 scholarship that Meeks will receive upon registration at a post-secondary school next fall.

As well, Meeks was named to the Varsity Honour Roll and was tabbed as the QB for the all-star team.

This season, Meeks was the Currie Division Offensive Player-of-the Week two weeks in a row, broke two league records (most touchdown passes in a game and most passing yards in a game), and also took home the Outstanding Contribution award at the Muskie football team's annual awards banquet.

He has also now made the Manitoba Selects' travel team and will be headed to Texas in February along with his Muskie teammate, Morgan Perreault, who played centre this season for the Muskies.

Perreault is a Grade 10 student at Fort High, who unfortunately got injured late this past season and had to have surgery.

However, once recovered, he hit the gym and was ready to get back on the field. Morgan's size and strength work in his favour and even though he's young, he's coming in strong and has two seasons of high school football ahead of him still.

Not only did the Muskies win the Canad Inns bowl title this year, but six of the Muskies' players were asked to tryout for the Winnipeg Rifles of the Canadian Junior Football League.

A big congrats goes out to all the dedication and hard work of the Muskie football coaches, players and guardians.
