Chasing the dream (VIDEO)

Coquitlam defensive end newest recruit to join CWUAA team’s 2014 class.

Tremont Levy believes he will inch closer to his dream of playing professional football with the University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds.

Recently, the 6’3, 240 pound defensive end from Coquitlam, British Columbia committed to the CWUAA team for the 2014 CWUAA season.

“When UBC had initially offered me my scholarship, I felt relief to know that this next season I would be playing somewhere where education was an option at the same time,” recalled Levy.  “Primarily, I had hopes and dreams of playing for the NCAA in the States, however as the UBC scholarship lingered in my mind, I began to dwell on it more and more.”

“With dreams of playing for the CFL, getting a well-recognized education and the chance to live independently, I began to realize UBC can fulfill all that I required to enable my growth.”

Levy began his gridiron journey in grade 11 and has played the sport for four years.

The defensive standout joins the Thunderbirds after completing a stint with the Langley Rams of the British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL). Previous to the Rams, Levy suited up for the Gleneagle Secondary Talons.

“I would also like to add in that AIR RAID ACADEMY has helped me beyond belief,” expressed Levy.  “When it came to my attitude towards the ability to compete and even as far as my academics and without their efforts in me, there is absolutely no way I would be able to have grown as fast as I did, so a huge thanks to Eddie Ferg and Karen Lopez from the Air Raid Academy!!”

“I eat like an American and train like a Canadian and this is only my start.”

As for the Thunderbirds, the team is thrilled to have a player with tremendous drive and playmaking abilities into the fold. Moreover, the team expects him to have an impact on the field in future years.

“Trey is an extremely focused and driven young man,” commented Thunderbirds Head Coach Shawn Olson.  “He has not played a ton of football so he is a bit of a late bloomer, but last year in a short time he became a difference maker for the Langley Rams in his first year of junior football.”

“He has the size, speed, strength and attitude to be a force at the college level and the work ethic to develop into a pro prospect for the next level.   I believe he will be a contributor on special teams and off the edge for us this year.”
