Seven Sun named to BCFC all-star team

Three defensive backs, including MVP Robbie Yochim, make conference squad for 2014

Led by team MVP Robbie Yochim, seven members of the Okanagan Sun have been named to the BCFC all-star team for 2014.

Yochim, who led the Sun with 34 tackles and four interceptions, was one of three players selected in the defensive secondary. Okanagan teammates Brennan Van Nistelrooy (19 tackles, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions) and Dexter Janke (14 tackles, three interceptions) also made the grade as defensive backs.

Also named on defense was lineman Zak Ironstand, who had 12 tackles, six sacks and a fumble recovery this season.

On offense, Alex Bradley was chosen as one of two running backs for the second year in a row. Bradley had 672 yards rushing on 77 carries and added five touchdowns.

The Sun also had two players selected on the offensive line—Cliff Crews and Michele Vecchio.

The Langley Rams had the most selections of all BCFC teams with eight.

The Sun captured its first conference regular season title since 2010 with a 9-1 record.

Meanwhile, after a week off, the Sun will return to action this Sunday when they host the Vancouver Island Raiders in the conference semifinal.

Kick off at the Apple Bowl is 1 p.m.
