CFC 100 duo sign with NCAA’s North Dakota Fighting Sioux

Two more CFC 100 recruits have officially signed their letter of intent with the University of North Dakota (UND) Fighting Sioux today.

Mason Bennett and Troy Hansen have joined a Canadian contingent that have committed to the NCAA FCS Division team.

Bennett, the 6’4, 230 pound defensive end from Winnipeg, Manitoba committed to the Fighting Sioux on September 1st, 2104.  The CFC 100 has played for the Vincent Massey Trojans of the Winnipeg High School Football League (WHSFL) and the Fort Garry Lions.

Among the honours the Trojans standout has achieved during his career include WHSFL Lineman of the Year, Trojans Lineman of the Year, and 2013 WHSFL ‘AAA’ All-Star selection. This past year, he was the named WHSFL ‘AAA’ John Potter Division Most Outstanding Lineman.

“It is exciting to know my hard work was finally paying off and my dream to play Division 1 football was coming true,” said Bennett back in early August in an interview with CFC.

Troy Hansen

Hansen, the 6’4, 210 pound linebacker from Edmonton, Alberta recently completed a stint with Canada Prep Academy.  Previously, the CFC 100 standout played for Connecticut prep team, Kent Lions, Jasper Place Rebels of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA) and West Edmonton Raiders. Hansen has won numerous awards for his play during his gridiron career.

Bennett and Hansen join two other CFC 100 players to form a Canadian connection at UND.  Early this morning, runnning back Brady Oliveira and offensive lineman Zack Williams signed their letter of intents with the Fighting Sioux.
