Bishop’s Gaiters’ commit ready to contribute to team

Bishop’s adds an out-of-province commit to their team.

Brody Uddenberg, a defensive back from Nanaimo District Secondary School, will be heading to the Bishop’s Gaiters with a particular goal in mind: make a difference.

Uddenberg will be trekking into Sherbrooke, Quebec, from his hometown of Nanaimo, BC, on the pacific coast. He was drawn to the school because of the athletic and academic prospects if allots.

“I committed to the school because I feel like I can contribute to what they are building on the football field,” he said. “Seems like the program is going through a bit of a culture change. That often happens with a new staff and I feel these are good guys to guide that change.”

Uddenberg’s praise for his future bench bosses didn’t stop there. He added that he said the coaches seem to be “very intelligent football minds with lots to offer.”

In terms of education, Uddenberg said the school has a program that fits in with his pervious educational experience. He will be taking sports studies with a specialization in athlete development.

Standing at 5’9, 185lbs, he has spent ten years on the gridiron. He has played for the Nanaimo Islanders (BC Secondary Schools Athletic Association) and the Westshore Rebels (CJFL). In 2009 and in 2011, he was the Islanders’ athlete of the year. He also won a provincial championship with the team in 2012. While with the Rebels, he was defensive back of the year in 2015 and 2016.
