Alberta man to be sentenced in February in deaths of 4 football players

GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. - An Alberta man charged in a crash that killed four high school football players has had a change in his court date.

Brandon Holubowich was scheduled to go trial in Grande Prairie later this year on 16 charges including impaired driving causing death.

But that will not take place and the Crown said Monday that Holubowich will be sentenced on Feb. 26.

Four players with the Grande Prairie Composite High School Warriors were killed and another was seriously injured in October 2011 after their vehicle and a pickup truck collided.

A fifth player was seriously injured.

Despite the loss, the team went on to win its league championship a few weeks later.
