Langley Rams offensive lineman Jesse Lawson will be blocking for his country next month.
Football Canada has announced its junior national team roster, which will take on USA Footballâ€™s U19 national team Feb. 7-8.
The event will take place at Maverick Stadium at the University of Texas at Arlington, as part of the 2014 International Bowl series.
Lawson is the only B.C. native on the 60-man roster, which was selected from close to 500 players who took part in regional identification camps across Canada.
The 6â€™6â€ 260 pound graduate of Surreyâ€™s Sullivan Heights Secondary was a rookie with the Canadian Junior Football Leagueâ€™s Langley Rams in 2013.
Team Canadaâ€™s roster will be trimmed to 45 following the games in Texas.
The 45 remaining players will represent Canada at the 2014 U19 world championship in Kuwait.
