Dinos “felt like a family” to local recruit

Calgary defensive back joins CWUAA team’s 2016 class.

Jean Ventose will be playing in front of the hometown crowd at the CIS level.

The 6’1, 205 pound defensive back (cornerback) who is a native of Fort Myers, Florida committed to the Calgary Dinos. Β Ventose will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

Overall, Ventose liked the close bonds which exists between the Dinos coaches and players as well as the drive the team possesses when it comes to achieving gridiron excellence.

“As soon as I joined team workouts, I loved the atmosphere,” elaborated the defensive standout. Β “It’s motivating being surrounded by players who want it as bad as I do and who push me to be better.”

“Everyone cares for one another, whether it be the teammates or the coaches. The coaches don’t only focus on one individual; they help all the players and want to see everyone reach their full potential. Even though I’ve only been training with the team for a short time, I have already learned a huge amount from the coaches and the players that will change the way I play and help me perfect my craft. It automatically felt like a family to me, which is why I committed to University of Calgary.”

Ventose has suited up for multiple teams during his career including Calgary Colts of the Prairie Football Conference (PFC) in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL), Okanagan Sun of the British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) in the CJFL and Henry Wise Wood Warriors of the Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association.
