Childhood dream realized

Calgary defensive lineman signs with CWUAA team.

Sam Dyer has finally fulfilled his childhood dream as well as his gridiron ambitions in the process.

The 6’4, 220 pound defensive lineman from Calgary, Alberta will start his CIS career at home.  Recently, Dyer signed with the Calgary Dinos for the 2014 CWUAA season.

“’I’ve always been a big fan of the Dinos,” commented Dyer of his decision.  “I was born and raised in Calgary and the Dinos were my home team.”

“To be able to be a part of this program has not only fulfilled my childhood aspirations, but my competitive endeavours as well. With the Dinos’ strong stance in the league I look forward to a fun and successful career with their program.”

Dyer comes to the Dinos after playing for the William Aberhart Trojans of the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association.

“They put me into leadership roles that pushed me to reach my potential on and off the field,” added the Calgary defensive lineman.

Moreover, he has suited up for the Calgary Cowboys of the Calgary Area Midget Football Association (CAMFA).

“I’ve been with the Cowboys football club since peewee,” expressed Dyer.  “I owe a great deal to that program.”

“They taught me discipline and integrity along with the skills needed to move to the next level.”

Dyer has represented his home province as a member of Team Alberta at the 2013 Football Canada Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick.
