A defensive back will also be leaving the USA for the University of Saskatchewan. Katley Joseph feels at home joining the Huskies.

Katley was drafted to the University of Maine. “When draft night didn’t go my way, it definitely had a huge impact on me, and I saw it as just a mental battle I’d have to overcome,” he states. “However, continuing my education and playing football was my main priority.”

From there, Katley was in touch with Saskatchewan’s Coach Flory through a family friend. Once he enrolled at the U of S, all that was left for him was to complete his visit and it was a no brainer from there. “I already had a great relationship with Coach Flory stemming back to my senior year in High School. From there, I knew what type of coach and person he was as there was always mutual respect between both of us,” he says. “From the culture standpoint, community support, and winning tradition, it was an easy decision. The University of Saskatchewan is where I feel at home.”

He began his football journey in Ottawa. He has played at every level beginning from NCAFA, OVFL, 7v7, high school, Prep School, and then the University of Maine. While Katley is in school he plans on pursuing his master’s degree in Educational Foundations with a concentration in teacher education.

Katley’s goals while he’s at the University of Saskatchewan are to win the Vanier Cup, graduate and obtain his master’s degree, plus leave a long-lasting impact in the program and community. The Huskies’ new recruit is 5’10, 190lbs.
