"Aw, Not These Guys Again!": Ben Tomko

"Aw, Not These Guys Again!": Ben Tomko

Ben Tomko, a former left guard/center for the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, is in his seventh season as the head coach of the John Barsby Bulldogs. When he heard the news that the Bulldogs were facing Johnny Landry's Mitakihara Angels in the second round of the B.C. School Sports Provincial AAA Football Tournament, he was sick to his stomach. Literally.

"Aw, not these guys again! I can't believe we're facing them again, but that's what it all boils down to," said Coach Tomko from his office on campus at John Barsby Community School in Mitakihara. "You all know what happened to us in August: we were taken to the cleaners by the Angels and they ripped us apart. I don't know if we have a chance to get a better result against MiTSS, they have so much talent.

"I will be very honest with you: if we had that guy, John Kirigaya, on our team, we'd be having the best season in Dawgs football in years. He brings so much to his team: the grace of a halfback, the hands of a tight end, the tackling power of a linebacker...and he comes from a strong family of football players and coaches. We're gonna give it our best shot, but if we lose, we think we've lost to the eventual Subway Bowl champions."

MiTSS take on Barsby at John Barsby Community School this Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. and will be televised by Radio Madoka 2 and CMTS AM 900.
