Rosetown's Daniel Wiebe was rather impressive at the Under 16 Western Challenge as he helped Team North Saskatchewan win a Bronze Medal at the tournament.

Wiebe is a talented receiver and has the ability to run quick and efficient routes while possessing excellent hand-eye coordination. Due to his skills at the position, Wiebe was selected to the team to compete in this tournament and made the most of his opportunities.

Team North Saskatchewan faced Manitoba in their tournament opener and took away many positives from the game. Wiebe was utterly unstoppable in this game as the young receiver managed to make 9 catches for 173 yards and a touchdown to top off an incredible performance. Despite Wiebe's large numbers, Manitoba went on to win by a score of 20-10.

After their semi-final loss in the opening match-up, Team North Sask would go on to face Team British Columbia in the Bronze Medal Game. Wiebe helped his club go on to win the Bronze Medal in a 17-9. Team North Sask depended on the run game more in the second game although Wiebe still contributed with 4 catches for roughly 30 years to help his team get the win.

Wiebe talked about the overall performance of how the team played throughout the two games.

"We had our ups and downs just like every other team does but I felt like we played pretty good overall. I felt that we were definitely getting better as the games went on and finding more confidence with each drive." Wiebe said.

The tournament draw forced teams to play two football games in a 4-day span which was an enjoyable challenge for Wiebe and his teammates.

"It was definitely tiring to play two games in four days. We had light practices and continued to work on small things but that's just football and it's a ton of fun for me," Wiebe said with excitement.
