Roko Vukic | GK | 2024 Grad | Croatia SC U21 Vukic possesses all the raw, tangible assets that a goalkeeper dreams of. He’s got a great, big frame and excellent timing off his line. Vukic positions himself well to get in the way of any shot from the opponent. He also comes off his line very well to collect crosses and through balls from the opponent.

Jacob Thomas | CB | 2024 Grad | Vancouver Island Wave

Thomas is a simple, poised central defender who looks to break pressure with decisive passes. He understands the flow of the match so well and is constantly looking to find a forward pass out of the backline. Defensively, he reads the game very well stepping in the win the ball both aerially and terrestrially. 

Taren Sandhu | CB | 2024 Grad | Croatia SC

Sandhu is an intelligent defender who uses his IQ to solve most problems, rather than relying on his size. He reads the game so well which allows him to step in at the right time or find a proper outlet pass to break pressure. When needed, Sandhu isn’t shy of using his size and strength to bully opponents.

Jorryn Gill | CB | 2024 Grad | Surrey United SC

Gill is a technically gifted central defender who can spray passes wherever he pleases. He skipped lines with ease during the combine, finding a number of long-range passes that constantly put his team on the front foot. Gill is also positionally sound keeping opposing attackers at bay with his size and speed.

Ebi Igali | CB | 2024 Grad | Surrey United SC

Igali is a quick and strong defender who combines his technical skill to solve problems. While he could overly rely on one of those skill sets to evade trouble, Igali uses a combination of them to constantly get the better of any opponent, both in and out of possession. He is also very strong in a challenge 

Issac Hamilton | CB/CDM | 2026 Grad | Thompson Okanagan FC

Hamilton plays with poise well beyond his years, not getting fazed by anything an opponent throws at him. Defensively, he never seems flustered by an attacker’s movement or 1v1 ability as he positions himself well and rarely gets beat. In possession, he demonstrated the ability to step in a holding midfield role with ease.

Marek Achadinha | CM | 2023 Grad | Vancouver Island Wave

Achadinha is an intelligent midfielder whose movement and technical skillset set him apart. He is so comfortable on the ball and under pressure that he’s always the outlet for his side. When under pressure Achadinha can wriggle his way out by gliding past defenders, or he can find the right outlet pass to set his teammates loose.

Dante Colebourne | CM | 2024 Grad | Surrey United SC

Colebourne is an all-action midfielder who is constantly around the ball in and out of possession. His work ethic is phenomenal as he always impacts the game positively for his team. On the ball, he showed his quality in, and around the box scoring a few times and setting up teammates for goals or chances every game.

Zachary Brook | ST | 2025 Grad | Fusion FC

Brook is a natural goal scorer whose movement creates half yard chances constantly. The 2008-born striker created so much space for himself and teammates in the box throughout the event. Possibly most impressive was his calmness in front of goal. Brook never panicked, and calmly slotted home numerous goals.

Michael Ajagbe | ST | 2025 Grad | Surrey United SC

Ajagbe has the capability of taking over any game single handedly through his athleticism and drive. He can play with his back to goal and threaten in behind which makes him so unpredictable for any defender. When defenders try to get overly physical and knock Ajagbe down, he just hops right back up ready to beat them again.

Andrew Kerr | LW/RW | 2025 Grad | Coastal FC

Kerr’s speed, directness and bravery make him a nightmare matchup for any defender he faces. He can use both feet with ease, and will constantly look to run the ball right down your throat. Kerr varies his movement, picking the ball up at his feet or running in behind in the hopes of running straight at goal.
