Area minor football players were in the spotlight on the Goudy Field turf in Langford on Sunday, but some larger counterparts were being celebrated as well nearby.

The Westshore Rebels held their national signing day event at the park, in conjunction with a trio of Vancouver Island Minor Football Association games. Not only did the Rebels players ink their cards for the upcoming season, some helped out by working as the sideline sticks crew and running water to the pre-atom, atom and pee wee division players, who were thrilled to be hanging with young men who will represent the Capital Region on the gridiron this season in B.C. Football Conference play.
