Kody Gutek, a student at MHS, was recently selected to represent Team Canada U16 for football in the International Bowl in Arlington, Texas on January 11-18. He was one of 40 athletes chosen across Canada. Two defensive Team Sask coaches, Brian Giebert and Brent Keeler were instrumental in selecting Gutek to represent Canada.
Gutek started his football career with the Maddogs and played with the MHS Royals high school team as a first year. Gutek saw lots of field time as a rookie starter. “I’m excited for him”, commented Coach Evanisky. “It’s a great opportunity and an honour to represent Canada”.
Last spring, Gutek joined the SMF Spring Academy where he had the opportunity to try out for Team Sask. From there the top athletes were chosen to compete at an international level. He was initially chosen as running back but his position is still uncertain. Kody is excited to pursue this level of football. “It’s a really exciting time in my football career”, commented Gutek.
The family is asking that any businesses who are wanting to provide financial support to Kody are welcome to call Tasha at 306-260-5337.
