CFC100 from Oak Park joins Manitoba Bisons

Manitoba brings in a Winnipeg commit to their Class of 2017.

When September rolls around, Cole Adamson, a defensive tackle from Oak Park High School, will have the chance to don the colours of his local team, the University of Manitoba Bisons.

“It’d be great to play for my hometown in front of my family and friends,” the product of Winnipeg, Manitoba, said. “I chose to commit to Manitoba because of the great coaching staff, program and facilities.”

Adamson will be stepping into a team who is poised to make some noise in the upcoming U Sports season. “The 2017 recruiting class is a great group of talented players,” he said.

When it comes to the coaches, Adamson likes what he sees: “Most of the staff has coached together for over 20 years. They are all passionate about the sport, team and the university.”

Towering at 6’5, 264lbs, the potential engineering student has forged a relationship with his soon-to-be head coach. He said that throughout the recruiting process, Coach Brian Dobie has become a good friend.

From 2008 to 2013, Adamson suited up for the Crestwood Grizzlies. The following two years, he played for the Oak Park Raiders in the Winnipeg High School Football League. In 2014, he was a junior varsity MVP and league all-star. In 2016, he was league defensive MVP, an all-star and the Raiders’ defensive MVP. He also was the Kas Vidruk Memorial Award winner, which is awarded to the lineman of the league.
