Calgary running back becomes fifth CFC TOP 100 player to join CWUAA team’s 2014 class.

Tyler Chow is moving provinces for his CIS career.

The 5’11, 190 pound running back from Calgary, Alberta recently signed with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.  The CFC TOP 100 ranked player will join the team for the 2014 CWUAA season.

Ultimately, his decision to choose the Huskies came down to three factors.

“I committed to the University of Saskatchewan because of the atmosphere of the city surrounding football,” explained Chow of his decision.  “Another big reason is how long Head Coach Brian Towriss has been with the program.”

“The University of Saskatchewan also offered the courses needed for my desired degree.”

This past fall, Chow led the Notre Dame Pride of the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association to their second consecutive Provincial Tier 1 Championship. Among the honours he’s received during his time with the Pride include Offensive Player of the Year (2012), Most Valuable Player (2011) as well as a Calgary Division 1 all-star (2012).

Last spring (2013), the CFC TOP 100 player was selected as a Calgary Area Midget Football Association (CAMFA) Boulton Division All-Star for his play on the field with the Calgary Hilltoppers.  Moreover, he was Rookie of the Year and Best All-Round Player in 2010.

Chow has represented his home province as a member of Team Alberta at the 2013 Football Canada Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick.  Additionally, the running back was a member of Team Canada’s National Under-18 squad which participated in the 2014 International Bowl Series in Arlington, Texas against Team USA.

With this commitment, the Huskies now have five CFC TOP 100 players.  In addition to Chow, receiver Yol Piok, defensive back/running back Kayden Johnson, offensive lineman David Singer and defensive back Gabriel Simons are the other CFC TOP 100 players to sign with the Huskies.
