It has been just three years since he first laced up his cleats in an organized fashion at Bethlehem Catholic High School, but in that short amount of time Aljashami has managed to cram some long lasting memories into his football career.

For starters in his second season with the program he earned the nod as the team’s Defensive Player of the Year after showing his coaches and teammates that size really is just a number deploying a fearless attitude all over the field. Winning Defensive of Player of the Year was a huge honour for Aljashami, but when asked to choose his favourite memory so far, he deferred to a moment every defensive back dreams of,

“Getting my first pick six because I had never had one before.” explained the defensive standout from Saskatchewan.

In the game of football rarely does one make it on their own and with his rise to success in the game so quickly, Aljashami is quick to note he could not be where he is today without support along the way.

“The most influential people in my life are my friends and family they really help me with everything,” he expressed. “Also my coaches who are working me hard to be the best I can be.”


While it is still early in the recruiting process for the defensive back who does not currently have any offers or visits planned, that doesn’t mean he still isn’t hopeful and is just trying to make sure he is doing everything in his power to land a spot whether it be sending out his highlight film to schools across the country, or honing in on his craft during the long summer months when nobody else is watching,

“I train five times a week mostly focusing on lifts and running forms, but I train more frequently in the summer time working on my position based stuff like footwork and coverage.”

Ajashami is open to attending any school who will give him a shot on the gridiron.  However, one CIS team does particularly stick out when he imagines playing the sport at the next level,

“Mostly the Saskatchewan Huskies,” he admitted.

Regardless of where the road leads Aljashami, he is just happy to be playing the sport at a high level and remains optimistic heading into his senior year,

“I love the grind and the sport of football.” he reflects on his time playing the game. “I’m a hard working player who is just always looking to improve on my strength and weaknesses.”
