Bisons have ‘best facilities’ in the nation, says commit

Manitoba brings in a local commit to their Class of 2018.

Tyler Koniuck, a receiver from Sisler High School, won’t be traveling very far for practices with his new team, the University of Manitoba Bisons.

“I chose Manitoba because they have a great program, the best facilities in Canada and I decided I’d like to stay closer to home,” Koniuck, who is from Winnipeg, Manitoba, said. “I think it’s a great coaching staff (too). I already have good relationships with some of them.”

In his ten-year career, the 5’11, 165lbs defensive back and receiver has played on the under-16 and under-18 editions of Team Manitoba. He also suited up for the North Winnipeg Nomads (Manitoba Major Junior Football League) and the Sisler Spartans (Winnipeg High School Football League).

In his grade nine year, Koniuck was named as the team’s offensive MVP and was a WHSFL all-star. He won a junior varsity championship with the Spartans the following year. He was also the team’s MVP and repeated as an all-star. In grade 11, he received a sportsmanship award. In his final year, he was team MVP, an all-star and the recipient of the Hawkeye Scholarship Award. The award is given annual to the player who demonstrates playing ability, good academics and is involved in the community.
