Calgary ‘where I wanted to be’ says commit

The Dinos bring in a local commit to their Class of 2017.

After a stint playing football in Ontario, Daniel Townsend, an offensive lineman from Notre Dame High School, will be heading back home to play some Calgary-flavoured football after committing to the University of Calgary Dinos.

“I picked Calgary because that’s where I saw myself playing,” Townsend said. “It’s the place where I wanted to be.”

After spending a post-graduate year at the Royal Imperial Colligate of Canada (RICC), Townsend is set to return to his hometown of Calgary. He played three years with the Notre Dame Pride (Calgary Senior High School Athletics Association) where he was a grade 11 city and provincial champion. In grade 12, he was named the Pride’s most improved player.

He can only get better under the direction of the Calgary coaches. “I think we have a great coaching staff and they’re going to help me become the best player I can be,” the former Calgary Hilltoppers offensive lineman of the year said.

Towering at 6’6, 295lbs, he is unsure as to which program he will be pursing in university.

Welcome to the Family Daniel Townsend! #wearealldinos #godinos #futuredinos
