CFC100 Hamilton commit heading to UBC

Thunderbirds welcome highly-touted Ontario commit.

After spending his life in steel city, CFC100 Isaiah Joseph, a linebacker from Cathedral High School, will get to experience a cool, ocean breeze after singing with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.

“The University of British Columbia appealed to me because I just felt comfortable there at the campus and with the players I met. The facilities are elite and the academics are great there. The football program has a lot of promise,” he said.

All promising programs start with the coaches backing the team. “(They have) elite coaches with a proven history of winning,” Joseph said. “Great at film, making people better and sending players to the pros.”

Joseph has spent his time perfecting his craft in his hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. The 6’4, 225lbs athlete played with the Cathedral Gaels (Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic Athletic Association) in high school and the Hamilton Ironmen in the OVFL. The two-time Ironmen MVP is interested in a BA, perhaps in creative writing.

In his career, he has been named as a rookie of the year and was a three-time OVFL all-star.

Paul Orazietti, the Thunderbirds special teams and recruiting coordinator, believes Joseph will make his mark on the team fairly quickly. “Isaiah is a tremendously gifted athlete with a great frame who unquestionable will become a big piece of our defensive front in a very short period of time,” he said.
