Rams' Lawson suiting up for Canada

Langley Rams offensive lineman Jesse Lawson is suiting up for Team Canada.

The six-foot-six, 260-pound lineman was named to the 60-man Canadian junior U19 national team which will face their U.S. counterparts on Feb. 7 and 8 at Maverick Stadium at the University of Texas at Arlington. The games are part of the 2014 International Bowl Series.

Lawson, a rookie on the Rams in 2013, was the lone B.C. player named to the squad, which was selected based on regional identification camps held across the country. Altogether, 500 players tried out.

Following the games in Texas, Canada will trim its roster to 45 players for the 2014 U19 world championships in Kuwait.
