With the Super Bowl featuring a multi-tool quarterback in San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick, it is becoming increasingly obvious how the league and all of football is changing. Players are growing up with role models like Michael Vick and the play style of Tim Tebow and Cam Newton. That is the kind of style play that Scott Hannah can bring to the field.

The Lloydminster, Saskatchewan native has been on the field since Grade 5, and has loved the game ever since. A passion he brings every day to his Vikings in Medicine Hat.

“Football makes me who I am,” said Hannah. “When I am on that field nothing else matters, apart from my brothers on the team, having fun and winning the game.”

Hannah’s town is on the boarder of Alberta and Saskatchewan, so it only makes sense for someone growing up in two provinces, to play multiple positions. And in doing that he has compiled an even greater number of awards.

Some of those include, playing on a National silver medalist team in 2011, two time RCF all-star, one time RCF MVP, Provincial Bronze medalist, as well as setting a record for most rushing yards by a quarterback, and holds the record for fewest interceptions thrown in a RCF season.

His favourite moment on the field came in the RCF Championship game.

“My favourite moment was beating the Hat High Mohawks in my grade 12 year for the RFC Championship and the Moose Cup,” said Hannah. “We hadn’t beaten them in 14 years.”

Hannah is a multi-sport athlete, playing basketball and soccer, but there is no question where his heart is.

And he has full support of his family and coaching staff both on and off the field.

“My girlfriend and my mom are very important in life, and in football my brother, Gregg Hannah and my Coaches are special. They just really inspire me. They drive me and are the people that just keep me focused and keep moving forward,” said Hannah

As for a role model in the NFL he has always liked Brett Favre, but says his style is more Tebowesque.

“I play quarterback a lot and I always end up running the ball. I almost had as many rushing yards as our running back this year,” said Hannah.

Hannah’s goal is to make it to the CFL and has the size to go toe for toe with the quarterbacks he will be fighting for spots with. The bonus here is that he can play multiple positions and be used in an option offense, which as we have seen in the NFL has lead to confused defenses. He seems to have his heart set on Calgary but is still open, wherever he lands, his potential is very high.
