Nova Scotia linebacker earns distinctions with commitment to CWUAA team.

The Manitoba Bisons has chartered new recruitment waters.

Prior to their Hardy Cup victory, the Bisons announced that they have signed Kyle Gordon.  The 6’1, 195 pound linebacker from Kingston, Nova Scotia will join the team for the 2015 CWUAA season.

With Gordon’s commitment, the Bisons have made history within their football program. He is the first recruit the Bisons have landed from Nova Scotia and the first Maritime player to be recruited to a Canada West team since Quentin Chown was recruited by the Calgary Dinos for their 2012 class.

For his part, the Nova Scotia linebacker felt that is was a mutually perfect fit for himself and the Bisons.  He was hooked on the program once he arrived in Manitoba for his official visit.

“I chose to commit to Manitoba because it is an all-around great fit on both sides,” explained Gordon of his decision.  “When I was there on my visit, I could instantly feel the family atmosphere amongst the team, and the level of respect everybody has for the program.”

“I think that the system is also a good fit for me and the coaching staff is excellent. Not to mention the facilities are the best in the nation. There seems to be a great sense of energy around the program and it is something I really want to be a part of. Overall it is a great fit and I am extremely excited to be a Bison.”

Gordon recently finished his senior season with West Kings Wolverines of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL). For his play in the 2013 season, the league selected him as a Scotia Division First Team All-Star.  Gordon began his gridiron career with Western Valley Minor Football.
