Chance to “compete for a starting spot right away” lured Winnipeg recruit to Bishop’s (VIDEO)

Winnipeg defensive back joins RSEQ team’s 2016 class.

Caleb Goudie will be playing at the CIS level in Quebec.

Recently, the 6’2, 205 pound defensive back from Winnipeg, Manitoba committed to the Bishop’s Gaiters.  Goudie will join the team for the 2016 RSEQ season.

“The two main factors of my commitment to Bishops were the small classes and school environment as well as Coach [Kevin] Mackey and the strength of the RSEQ conference,” explained the defensive standout of his decision.

When he arrived on campus for a visit, he knew it was just the right place for him.

“During my recruiting trip I felt right at home and I really enjoyed the atmosphere on the campus,” explained Goudie, who will begin taking courses towards Sports Studies at the university this fall. “Coach Mackey being a defensive minded head coach and giving me an opportunity to compete for a starting spot right away really solidified my decision to be a Gaiter.”

In six games with the Winnipeg Rifles of the Prairie Football Conference (PFC) in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL), the defensive back caught two interceptions, had a fumble recovery, a pass breakup as well as registered a tackle for a loss and 14 tackles.  He started in five of those games.

Previous to the Rifles, Goudie has suited up for several teams during his career including Kamloops Broncos of the British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) in the CJFL, Sturgeon Heights Huskies of the Winnipeg High School Football League and St. James Rods.
