Bisons add talent, experience with 2

Manitoba adds two out-of-province commits to their 2019 class.

When the 2019 season rolls around, quarterback Stephen Woit from F.W. Johnson Collegiate and linebacker Tye Kitzman from the Okanagan Sun (CJFL) will be ready to get to work with the University of Manitoba Bisons.

Stephen Woit will be leaving his hometown of Regina, Saskatchewan, and crossing provincial lines. It’s a decision he is completely fine with. “Their facilities are amazing, really nice campus. It felt like home,” he said. “Their coaching staff is amazing, and I feel they will help me reach my full potential as a QB.”

Woit has played for two teams in his seven-year career. In 2017 and 2018 he was the recipient of the “heart and soul” award from the F.W. Johnson Wildcats (RHSSA). Standing at 6’5, 215lbs, he is interested in human justice or criminology.

Tye Kitzman

Tye Kitzman had a productive season with the 2018 Okanagan Sun. In the regular season, he had 20 tackles, four assisted tackles and three special teams tackles. He also had one fumble, three interceptions and one interception for a touchdown. He blocked one kick and defended against five passes. On kickoff return, he had six returns total (regular and playoffs) for 41 yards. The longest was a 27-yard return. The product of Vernon, BC, formally played with the Clarence Fulton Maroons (BCSSFA). He is 6’2, 205lbs.
