After a surprising loss to Canada in the 2012 International Federation of American Football Under-19 World Championships, the Red, White and Blue regained supremacy Wednesday with a 40-17 win over Team Canada in the 2014 IFAF U-19 championship game in Kuwait.
Team USA, which captured the inaugural championship in 2009, was led by quarterback Bryan Scott, who currently plays for Occidental College after playing his high school ball at Palos Verdes High School in California. Scott threw for 187 yards and four touchdowns in the victory. Sasha Kelsy, who will be entering his freshman year at Lehigh after graduating from Columbus High in Miami, caught three of the TD passes, finishing with three catches for 127 yards.
Josh Stevens, who will be playing at Merced Junior College after ending his high school career at Seabreeze High School in Florida, led the USA ground game with 152 yards and a score.
The next world championship will be held in 2016 at a site to be determined.
