Subway Bowl’s quarterback brotherhood: Rams’ Kremler, Hyacks’ Philip share friendship, respect on and off the field

VANCOUVER — A learned football sage pointed out earlier this week that a unique B.C. high school football era will be coming to an end Saturday at B.C. Place Stadium when the Mt. Douglas Rams and the New Westmintser Hyacks meet at 7 p.m. to decide the 2018 Subway Bowl B.C. Triple A champion.

The Holy Grail of Subway Bowl! Why it means the world for B.C. high school football teams to play games at B.C. Place Stadium
