British Columbia recruit attracted to Dinos’ “family aspect and winning attitude” (VIDEO)

British Columbia quarterback joins CWUAA team’s 2016 class.

Josiah Joseph ultimately wanted a chance to contribute immediately on a team that was committed to excellence.

Consequently, the 6’3, 210 pound quarterback from Peachland, British Columbia signed with the Calgary Dinos.  Joseph will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

Among the main reasons the pivot chose the Dinos was the strength of his chosen academic field as well as proximity.

“Academically, they have one of the best kinesiology programs in Canada,” elaborated Joseph.  “I plan on pursuing a degree in kinesiology, so it was a great fit.”

“Location wise it’s fairly close to home, as well I have family that live near Calgary.”

However, it was the chances the football program offered to Joseph that was too good to pass up.

“Football wise, I have always been a very competitive person,” expressed Joseph.  “There is a huge opportunity for me to compete for a spot and make an impact on the team right away.”

“I have decided to go in January to start the offseason training with the Dinos as well as learning the offense before spring camp.”

Upon his visits to the Calgary campus, Joseph felt at ease and knew the Dinos were the perfect destination for the next leg of his gridiron journey.

“On my recent visit, although I had already committed, I had an amazing time thanks to the coaching staff and the Dinos players,” recalled Joseph.  “Coming from such a tight knit group of guys with the Okanagan Sun, the family aspect and winning attitude of their players was evident, one of the most important reasons in my decision.”

“Also, I instantly felt a connection with Offensive Coordinator Ryan Sheahan when I went on a mini-visit in April earlier this year.   We sat down, talked about his offense and watched film. Instantly, I knew I could be a good fit in his dynamic pro-style offense.”

This past season, Joseph completed a stint with the Okanagan Sun of the British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL). In 2015, the pivot completed 94 passes in 137 attempts for 1490 yards, 12 touchdowns, four interceptions and a 121.6 quarterback rating.  His completion percentage of 68 percent broke set a new BCFC record.

Previous to the Sun, the offensive standout suited up for Mount Boucherie Bears of the British Columbia High School Football Association (BCHSFA).
