VANCOUVER — What a difference a year can make. From the ashes of last season’s 1-6 league record to a 5-0 start this season in the AAA Western Conference, the No. 3-ranked Vancouver College Fighting Irish (6-0, 5-0 West) can tell you with authority that while youth will always be served, patience remains a virtue.

For Hyacks’ senior Evan Nolli, Homecoming 2018 is the perfect time to show his home is now on the line

NEW WESTMINSTER —How exciting it must be for the scores of university football recruiters currently making their pitch to land 17-year-old Evan Nolli, knowing that the young man they are projecting as a future star along their offensive line has as good a chance to wind up being the best defensive lineman in their program.
