Michael Scraper will be following in family footsteps at the CIS level.

Recently, the 6’0, 185 pound receiver signed with CIS hometown team, Regina Rams.  Scraper will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

The offensive standout will be the second member of the Scraper family to dress for the Rams.  His older brother Daniel is a kicker/wide receiver has with the team.

“My older brother Daniel has played with the Rams for the last two years so it will be fun to play alongside him again,” expressed the Saskatchewan standout.

However, there were additional reasons why Scraper opted to stay home and committed to the Rams.

“I really liked the business school at the University of Regina and feel like I will get a really good education there,” explained the receiver.  “The Rams kind of felt like home as there are a lot of familiar faces.”

“I think there is going to be about 15 guys from my high school (LeBoldus) on the team for this upcoming season. Finally, I think there is a really solid group of veteran leaders on the team as well as some talented, young players. We are all just eager to find out who the new coach will be!”
