Alberta adds 2 CFC100s to team

Alberta adds top talent to their 2019 class.

CFC100 running back Matthew Peterson from Brooks Composite High School and CFC100 offensive lineman Jacob Weller from Notre Dame High School are heading to the provincial capital after signing with the University of Alberta Golden Bears.

CFC100 Matthew Peterson

When Matthew Peterson looks at the Golden Bears, he seems more than a school. He sees an opportunity. “I picked the UofA because I felt like I could grow as a player and a person as well, but, most of all, help bring the school a championship,” Peterson said.

“The thing that appealed to me was the coaching staff. They showed that they care about their players,” he added. “The coaching staff is great and will help their players and team in any way possible.”

Peterson, who is 5’10, 200lbs, is interested in taking arts in his first year with the intention of switching into criminal justice.

In Peterson’s extensive 14-year career he has played for a number of different teams. He has suited up for the Alberta Rising Stars in the ABC Border Bowl, the Brooks Roadrunners (SAMFA), the SAMFA All-Stars and the Clarion-Goldfield Cowboys. His high school team is the Brooks Buffalos (RFC).

Originally from Rock Island, Illinois, Peterson has found a home for himself north of the border. He was the 2017 Rangeland Football Conference MVP and the 2017 ABC Border Bowl MVP.

With the 2019 season still a year away, Peterson is bubbling with excitement. He said, “Just can’t wait to play.”

CFC100 Jacob Weller

Standing at a towering 6’5, 315lbs, Jacob Weller has played as a tackle and defensive tackle. Hailing from Red Deer, Alberta, he as played with the Notre Dame Cougars (CRCASAA) since 2015. During the spring he played with the Prairie Fire (CSFA).
