Canadian university football’s upcoming talent showcase will feature three members of the McMaster Marauders. Kyle Quinlan, Jason Medeiros, and Tanvir Bhangoo have been selected to play in the 2011 Canadian Interuniversity Sports East-West Bowl.

The McMaster trio will suit up for the West team, which is comprised of players from universities located west of the Greater Toronto Area, including York.

Players for the respective teams are nominated by their coaches and all CIS teams are represented. The participants are all athletes heading into their draft-eligible year, for the Canadian Football League.

Heading into their senior year, the three Marauders will gain valuable experience playing with other elite players from across Canada.

In addition, McMaster head coach Stefan Ptaszek and defensive coordinator Greg Knox will be part of the coaching staff for Team West. Both former CFL players, Ptaszek will help coach the receivers, while Knox will look after the defensive backs.

This year’s game is the ninth annual CIS East-West Bowl and will be played on Saturday, May 7 at TD Waterhouse Stadium at the University of Western Ontario.
