Hard Work is Paying Off for Our Boys!

February 27, 2015

FootballFinal.jpgSigning day at the University of Manitoba was, for the second consecutive year, a Clansmen affair. We are very proud of our team Captain and team MVP Jared Lazarenko, as well as our defensive MVP and team Canada member Tristan Bredin as they were welcomed into the CIS at a press conference held by the Bisons. They join Breadan Cheang, Drenin Busch, Cam Duplin, Alex McKay, Ryan Lewis and Josh Onyebuchi as Clansmen alumni on the current Bison's Roster. Our boys have worked hard and it is amazing to see them be rewarded with an opportunity like this. We couldn't be more proud!

In addition to Jared and Tristan, we also would like to celebrate the highly touted signing of Zack Williams to the University of North Dakota. UND is a division 1 school in the NCAA. Zack is the first Clansmen football Alumni to attend an American football program! We are very proud of Zack's great accomplishments.

This year may also be the year that a Clansmen Alumni goes pro. Derek Yachison a member of our Championship team in 2010, will get his chance to get on the field with the BC Lions this year, making the practice squad last season. We couldn't be happier for Derek, so much so that we may even have to cheer for the Lions...at least when he is on the field.
