Simon Fraser linebacker Casey Chin (Port Moody, BC) and offensive lineman Matthias Goosen (Richmond, BC) have been named to the World Team roster for the 2012 International Bowl in Austin, Texas.

The game between Team USA and Team World will be played next Wednesday.

A total of 28 Canadians were named to the 44-member International Federation of American Football World Team roster which will include players from nine different countries.

Team World is led by Greg Marshall, head coach at the University of Western Ontario.

It will be Goosen’s second trip to the International Bowl while Chin will be making his first appearance in the game.

“It’s a huge honor for these two young men to be chosen to represent Canada,” said SFU football head coach Dave Johnson. “It’s such a unique opportunity for a football player. I have no doubt that Matthias and Casey will make their country, and their school proud.”

Goosen just completed his sophomore season with the Clan, earning a nomination to the GNAC all-conference first team.

Chin led the GNAC in average tackles per game with 8.2 and had 74 tackles. He was named to the GNAC all-conference second team.

Team World gathered in the Texas state capital today as the coaching staff began the task of bringing together players from all over the world to take on Team USA.
