Calgary recruit hooked Golden Bears’ rebuild energy

Calgary receiver newest recruit to join CWUAA team’s 2015 class.

Ronnie Oling will begin his CIS career in his home province.

The 6’0, 170 pound receiver from Calgary, has signed with the University of Alberta Golden Bears. Oling will join the team for the 2015 CWUAA season.

Ultimately, the rebuild magnetism of the Golden Bears was an alluring factor for Oling.

“I committed to the University of Alberta because I was well aware of the amount of work put in to rebuilding a championship caliber program and looking at the current players and recruits made me feel that each person has their part and has bought into this program’s long and short term goals so the opportunity to have a chance to be a part of the Golden Bears and do my part in helping them achieve their goals was something that I was more than willing to buy into,” commented Oling of his decision.

Additionally, the reputation of academic programs was another factor.  Overall, Oling is thrilled to see that his hard work has paid off and is looking forward to becoming a new member of the Golden Bears.

“I also have familiarized myself with the accolades the University has achieved over the years and the way it presents itself globally when it comes to the academic aspect,” added the Calgary receiver.  “When I first started football in grade eight, it started out as a recreational purpose to keep me busy and in shape but over the years as I began growing a passion for the game, I began seeing myself get better each year and I knew that I had the potential to take my skills to the next level and my recent signing has been a humbling experience seeing all the work I put in to make myself better start to payoff though it will take a whole new level of commitment and hard work to get myself to the ideal athlete that the Golden Bears want all their players to be.”

Oling has previously played for the Harry Ainlay Titans of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA), midget Edmonton Chargers and bantam Edmonton Mustangs.
