I would be very surprised. I have not seen many Canadian teams be comparable to the better US programs. I find it hard to believe there would be multiple D1 candidates on any of those teams.....Possible I guess....
Pinehurst is a 1st year (I believe) Canadian team that plays American style football & has only scheduled American teams (Steuby, St. Iggy, Detroit Brother Rice, etc.). This team is supposedly made up of players who are vying for scholarships at Div 1 American Universities. The coaching staff consists of US coaches with NFL or Div 1 NCAA experience. It remains to be seen how good they are or can become, especially being that this might be their first year of playing.
The Canadian Prep Football Academy Spartans are new, but they use to play football at another academy that went under. They are currently 1-0 after beating Renaissance Christian from Pa. 49-38 last week. They have coaches who played at the ncaa and nfl levels. They also have 7 players who have received offers from NCAA programs. Steuby should still handle them easily... Steuby ducking Trotwood is a joke!

Just a thought, but Brother Rice handled Iggy rather well in the first game of the season. Iggy had a TOP of only 5:44. I would say that was domination.
Pinehurst is where they now attend school for academics. They are a football academy called The Canadian Prep Football Academy Spartans. They used to to be the Niagara Football Academy Spartans(actually up until May of this year), but that academy went under due to a very poor administration who made very poor choices.
