This fall, Brock Weston will get up in time for 7:15 a.m. practices every day.

He’ll work out every night, whether it’s a typical gym workout, a plyometrics workout, or yoga.

In between, he’ll attend classes – a full course load that includes five classes and two labs a week.

It really was no contest on Thursday evening at Beaver Lions Stadium.

Right from the get go, the North Battleford Comprehensive Vikings showed who was boss.
