Huskies’ reputation appealed to Calgary recruit

Calgary defensive back signs with CWUAA team.

Kaedon Armstrong will be moving provinces to begin his CIS academic and gridiron journey.

Recently, the 5’9, 155 pound defensive back from Calgary, Alberta has committed the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.  Armstrong will join the team for the 2015 CWUAA season.

Ultimately, there were several reasons he chose the Huskies.

“The university has a very good football reputation making the playoffs for countless number of years in a row,” explained Armstrong of his decision. “The coaches are awesome.”

“From the first time I met with them they made me feel like I would be a great addition to the team and they thought I could make a big difference for the team. The facilities were second to none from the stadium to the workout facility; I hadn’t seen anything like it. It was also a great choice for me academically as it had the faculty that I wanted to be in. I am so excited to be a Huskie!”

Armstrong was a two-way player during his time with St. Francis Browns of the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association (CSHSAA). During his time there, he played both the defensive back and running back positions.

This past season, he rushed for 700 yards and tallied 10 majors with the Browns.  The team made an appearance in the Calgary Tier 1 Finals, but lost to eventual Provincial Tier 1 Champions,  CFC # 1 Notre Dame Pride.

During his time with the Browns, Armstrong has been honoured with Offensive Back Award twice as well as selected as a Calgary Division 1 All-Star two consecutive times.
