The International Bowl is an annual event that pits the best of the young talent in football from the United States against the best in the rest of the world.
This year, the Cowboys had two signees play in the game, and QB Spencer Sanders was named the MVP of the under-19 game between the United States and Canada.
Spencer completed 13 of his 20 passes for 181 yards. After the game, he talked about his week and how it felt to participate in the game.

Spencer said it was “more than an honor” to represent the stars and stripes last night, then echoed his gratitude towards his teammates and gave them all the credit for the victory.

Defensive end Tyler Lacy also balled out against Canada, having his own MVP-caliber game. The 6’4” Texan was a monster in the Canadian backfield, recording two sacks and two tackles for loss.

When asked by Robert Allen of GoPokes what he was going to be doing the rest of the spring, Lacy didn’t even hesitate.
“Body by Glass. They have already told me it is hard and that they wake up in the morning dying.”
