CJFL WEEKEND WARRIOR: Chae Faickney

Entering his third season with the Langley Rams

The Langley Rams have had a dominating run game in the last number of season’s thanks in large part to the talented players on the offensive line giving Nathan Lund room to run.

Chae Faickney (21) will enter his third season out of Nanaimo and will be looked upon as a leader as the Rams try and get back to the Cullen Cup Canadian Bowl Semi-Final.  The Rams have appeared in the BCFC title game four times in the last five seasons.

Faickney first met former Rams head coach Jeff Alamolhoda in 2013 at the Starbowl and decided to take part in Spring Camp. He quickly discovered Langley was the perfect fit.   The very next season he found himself starting all but one game, hoisting the BCFC title and appearing in the 2014 Canadian Bowl as the Rams hosted the Saskatoon Hilltops.

The 6’1, 280 pounder has worked on his strength in the offseason and has bulked up.  He finished last year at 259 pounds putting on 21 pounds of muscle coming into this campaign.  His personal best in the bench press is 375 pounds.

In the offseason he’s become Coach Faickney, helping coach kids at the minor football level in Nanaimo as well working at Springline Designs, building custom concrete BBQ Island and firetables.

Entering just his third season Faickney’s abilities have garnered the attention of CIS schools, something he is interested in pursuing in the future.  However in 2016 he is happy to be back in the Rams family and looks forward to getting back on the line to block for a championship.

Chae Faickney is a CJFL Weekend Warrior.
