Overall, Berhane was impressed on his recent trip to Halifax, Nova Scotia to tour the campus and meet with the football program.

“I had a really great experience during my visit to Saint Mary’s,” recalled the Ontario kicker.  “I was immediately greeted with an outpour of support and positivity from coaches, players, and various Haligonians.”

“I was more than happy with everything Coach [AJ] Tufford helped me out with and how he expressed his, along with the city’s love for the Saint Mary’s football program. I think Tufford is doing a great job and the team has a lot of potential for next season.”
