A pair of Whatcom County football players have been selected to the rosters of Team USA at the 2017 International Bowl, to be held Jan. 13-17 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.
Geirean Hatchett, a freshman defensive end/offensive guard at Ferndale High who is already playing for the varsity squad, has been selected to play on the defensive line for the U-16 national team, while Bryson Lamb, a seventh-grader at Whatcom Middle School, was chosen to play on the defensive line for the U-14 select team.
Both players were chosen after participating at a regional camp and the Canton Development Camp in Ohio last summer.
Teams from Canada and Japan are also scheduled to play in the eighth International Bowl.
