CanWest Recruiting Wrap: Dinos, Rams and Golden Bears bolster their lineups

Regina Rams

Regina have signed local linebacker Ryan Makowksy, who’s proud to wear the Green and Gold of the Rams for years to come.


“I choose the University of Regina because I love the coaches, and it’s in my hometown,” he states.

Makowsky will be enrolling in business at the U of R, and his goals while at the university are to become a better person, and to play good for the team. The Rams’ new linebacker stands tall at 6’1, 190lbs.

The Regina Rams have also agreed to terms with local offensive lineman William Templeton, who will take the next step in his football career with the University of Regina. Templeton is 6’2, 280lbs. He will be studying engineering and applied science.

A new quarterback has also signed on with the University of Regina as Chris Clarkson will make his way across the border from Winnipeg in 2022. Clarkson played for the St. Paul Crusaders in the Winnipeg, and weighs in at 5’11, 177lbs.

Lastly the Rams have added to their offensive line as Damon Iron will make the leap from CJFL to U Sports this year. Iron comes to the Rams from the Regina Thunder, and should become a force on the line at 6’4, 295lbs.

Calgary Dinos

The Calgary Dinos have added a new wide receiver to their offense with Tyler Milev committing to the Dinos after playing his high school ball in Calgary with the St. Francis Browns. Miley is a big receiver standing at 6’3, 180lbs.

Another local defensive lineman will be staying in Calgary, and Steen Knudsen is excited to take the next step with the Dinos.

“I chose Calgary because I know a lot of the team already and I believe it is a great school for what I want to study (kinesiology),” he says. “It also has an amazing coaching staff capable of getting a championship win.”

Knudsen is waiting for his acceptance letter to the Kinesiology department, but is open to pursuing an Art degree as well.

While he’s at Calgary, Knudsen’s goals are to become a well-developed athlete, student and man. “Athletics wise I would love to be a starting player with a goal of a national champion title somewhere along the way,” he states. “I haven’t thought about football after university I figure I will cross that road when I come to it and I have more pressing matters to worry about.”

Knudsen’s main position is defensive end but he has also played offensive tackle, guard and every special teams position but kicker. In his time with St. Francis, Knudsen plans on pursuing defensive end but he is open minded to what the coaching staff has in store for him.

Another member of the St. Francis Browns has agreed to join the Calgary Dinos with running back Trey Loupelle ready to carry the rock for U of C in the future. Loupelle stands at 5’10, 185lbs and has a 3.0 GPA.

One more prospect from the St. Francis Browns has signed with the Dinos with Adrik Guerra trying to lock up a spot at defensive back on the Dinos starting lineup very soon. Guerra should make an impact for the Dinos at 6,0, 160lbs.

Alberta Golden Bears

The Golden Bears didn’t have to look far for their latest recruit with local defensive back Skyllar Mckay taking the next step in his football journey at the U of A. McKay was recently on the provincial champion Harry Ainlay Titans from Edmonton, and measures in a 5’9″, 161lbs.
