Bisons add two CFC100s, two others to herd

Bisons add two local commits and two out-of-province commits to their team.

CFC100s Isaiah Letander, a defensive lineman from Kelvin High School, and Broxx Comia, a running back from New Westminster Secondary School, know that they are always welcome on the University of Manitoba Bisons.

Mark Rauhaus, an offensive lineman from Vincent Massey Collegiate, and Logan Fischer, a running back from the Saskatoon Hilltops (CJFL), will also be joining the Bisons.

CFC100 Isaiah Letander

Isaiah Letander saw no reason to leave Winnipeg, Manitoba. “It’s home,” he said. “I want to stay close to family but, at the same time, improve my football skills.”

He will have help from the Bisons coaches, who he said, “are all amazing and they will push you to your full potential.”

The 6’3, 300lbs defensive tackle played with the Kelvin Clippers (WHSFL) in high school. He is a two-time ‘lineman of the year’ in 2017 and 2018.

CFC100 Broxx Comia

Broxx Comia will be switching provinces after committing to the Bisons. “I chose Manitoba because I know that education-wise, it’s a perfect fit for me and I want to be a part of a program that’s rebuilding,” he said.

“The first thing I noticed was how welcoming the staff was, especially Head Coach Dobie making me feel like that’s where I belong,” Comia added. “I know that this staff loves to have fun but also knows how to get down to business.”

Comia is from New Westminster, BC, where he played with the New Westminster Hyacks (BCSSFA). The 5’11, 160lbs running back and wide receiver was a 2017 Subway Bowl champion. He also played in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge.

Mark Rauhaus

Mark Rauhaus had no intention of leaving the city of his birth. “I chose to stay because it’s home to me,” the product of Winnipeg, Manitoba, said. “I grew up watching games and I frequent the campus for hockey practice or workouts. Their facilities are great. I’m going to get a great education. It’s always been a dream of mine to be a Bison.”

Rauhaus, who is interested in science, added that he has nothing but good things to say about Brian Dobie, the team’s head coach. “I’ve played for some of the other coaches on the U18 team and I really like how they coach,” he added. “I’ve met with Coach Butler a few times and I am very confident that with him, I will grow a lot as a player.”

Rauhaus isn’t the first member of his family to become a Bison. He said his father was a great Bisons player and won the Metras Trophy. “I wanted to keep the Rauhaus name in the Bison program,” he said.

The 6’0, 260lbs centre and guard played with the Fort Garry Lions and the Vincent Massey Trojans (WHSFL).

Logan Fischer

Logan Fischer of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, has played football with the Hilltops for four years now. Before that he attended Bethlehem High School. Fischer, who is 6’1, 200lbs, had 176 rushes for 1,033 years and 11 touchdowns in 2016. He also caught 29 passes for 292 yards and five touchdowns that year.
