Bolstering the offense

Matt Wallace

Regina & BC standouts commit to CWUAA team.

Two recruits will commence their CIS careers in the Canada West Conference.

Matt Wallace and Alex Ho recently signed with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds. Both players will join the team for the 2014 CWUAA season.


Wallace joins the Thunderbirds after finishing his high school career with Leboldus Golden Suns of the Regina Intercollegiate Football League (RIFL).  Wallace guided the Golden Suns to back-to-back provincial championships.

For his exceptional play this past season, the offensive lineman was selected as a Regina 4A Schwann Conference All-Star.

Additionally, Wallace has represented his home province as a member of Team Saskatchewan at the 2012 Football Canada Cup in London, Ontario.

As for the Thunderbirds, the team is looking forward to this addition – which will bolster their offensive line.

“Matt is a massive young man,” commented Thunderbirds Head Coach Shawn Olson.  “We felt he was one of the top, if not the top offensive lineman from the province of Saskatchewan.”

“He has good feet and strength, but his best trait is an outstanding football IQ.  He also brings a championship pedigree from Leboldus High School.  We are very excited to add Matt to our young offensive line unit.”


The 6’2, 250 pound quarterback from Abbotsford, British Columbia has opted to stay home for his CIS career.

Ho joins the Thunderbirds after completing his high school career with Rick Hansen Hurricanes of the British Columbia High School Football Association (BCHSFA).

Olson is thrilled to have landed a local pivot with tremendous upside.

“Alex is a very good quarterback prospect,” commented Olson.  “He is a monster standing at 6’2 and 250 pounds with amazing strength and sneaky athleticism.”

“He has one of the strongest arms I have seen and I am really excited to work with and see how we can develop his potential.”
