Commits impressed by Saskatchewan Huskies’ coaching experience

Saskatchewan adds one local, one southern Saskatchewan and one out-of-province commit to their Class of 2018.

Carson Schrader from Holy Cross High School, Jordan Maucieri from Centennial High School and Avery Dunster from Esterhazy High School may be virtual strangers now, but they will have plenty of time to get to know one another when they shore up the linebacker core for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Carson Schrader

In week three of the 2017 season, Carson Schrader tore his ACL. Through his dedication to his rehab, he managed to return for the city finals. Still tending to his injuries, he said he committed to Saskatchewan because he thought it would be best to stay where his care was.

Schrader, who is Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, added that he chose the Huskies because “it was close to home and I knew I would have good opportunities here. The coaches are a great group of guys and we have recruited lots of awesome coaches, which will help us succeed in the following years.”

Schrader played with the Holy Cross Crusaders (Saskatoon Secondary School Athletic Directorate) in high school. Standing at 6’2, 194lbs, he won a city championship last year. He is a two-time MVP and was rookie of the year in 2011. In 2012, he was the recipient of the Harvey Keller award. He also represented Team Saskatchewan on the under-16, under-17 and under-18 editions of the team. He spent four years with the Kinsmen Football League Raiders as well and is interested in sports medicine.

Jordan Maucieri, who is 6’3, 190lbs, calls Calgary, Alberta, his home. Soon, the future business student will be heading into Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, to learn from the Huskies coaches.

“I really like the coaching staff and the campus,” Maucieri said. “The coaches all have CFL backgrounds, which was really cool and appearling.”

Maucieri played with the Centennial Coyotes (Calgary High School Athletic Association) and the Calgary Colts (Calgary Area Midget Football Association) as an outside linebacker. He has been playing football for 11 years and in that time, he was won a Division 2 championship with the Colts.

Avery Dunster

When Avery Dunster visited the Huskies, he fell in love with the school. “(It has a) great campus and facilities,” he said. “I really love the vibe they have with the team and the expectations are blunt.”

Dunster added that he finds it simply amazing that Head Coach Flory is a former CFLer. “You know he knows what it takes to be successful and all the other coaches just have a great energy and are fun to be around,” he said.

Dunster comes from Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, which is south-east of Saskatoon and is near the Manitoba border. He played with the Esterhazy Warriors, which plays a nine-man game. He also was apart of Team Saskatchewan U16 in 2015 and Team Saskatchewan U17 at the 2017 International Bow. He was a silver medalist with Team Saskatchewan U18 at the 2017 Football Canada Cup.

This past season, Dunster, who is 6’0, 215lbs, was the Warriors’ MVP. He was also named as a defensive MVP in 2015 and 2016. He is interested in taking business.
