Keagan Hughes will be commencing his CIS career in Quebec.

Recently, the 6’0, 210 pound linebacker from West Kelowna, British Columbia signed with the Bishop’s Gaiters.  Hughes will join the team for the 2016 RSEQ season.

“This fall I have decided to play the game I love at the next level and sign with Bishop’s University in Quebec,” expressed Hughes. “Bishops really has everything I have been waiting to find in a university.”

“They have a small campus in a close knit community. They offer a great combination of football and academics. When Bishops invited me for a visit, and I got to know the other player and coaching staff. They are a great group of guys with a ton of talent. I couldn’t resist their offer. I’m excited to spend my next 5 years playing in Quebec and earning my degree in Sports Studies.”
