Recently, the 5’11 195 pound linebacker from Peachland, British Columbia signed with the University of Alberta Golden Bears. Callaghan will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

Overall, the Golden Bears provided the best opportunity for the running back to achieve both his academic and gridirion pursuits.

“They have a great academic support system,  they are a top five university for academics and they have the second best nursing program in Canada,” expressed Callaghan of his commitment.  “The coaches and players were very welcoming felt like a family and my visit was great very organized.”

“They are a team on the up rise.”
