Layne Hull and Jonas Gering would have preferred to end their junior football careers with a Canadian championship.

Still, the two graduating members of the Okanagan Sun have left an indelible mark on the B.C. Football Conference club.

Hull and Gering were named this week as Canadian Junior Football League all-Canadians on defense.

The Sun’s team MVP and BCFC defensive player of the year, Hull, 22, collected 30 tackles, 10 assisted tackles, three sacks, three knockdowns, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception.

Hull, along with Calgary Colts linebacker Colton Burr, is a finalist for the CJFL defenasive player of the year which will be announced tonight at the Banquet of Champions in Victoria.

Gering, a graduate of RSS, capped off a stellar five-year career on the Sun’s defensive line, registering 25 tackles, six assisted tackles, 4.5 sacks and one knockdown.

It’s the second year in a row Gering has earned CJFL all-Canadian honours.
