Local recruit hopes to hoist Vanier Cup at home with SMU

Eastern Passage recruit joins AUS team’s 2015 class.

Saint Mary’s Huskies have added another local recruit to their 2015 class.

Spencer Wells is the newest Husky.  The 6’0, 170 pound receiver from Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia will join the team for the 2015 AUS season.

Wells completed his high school career with Cole Harbour Cavaliers of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL). Additionally, the receiver has suited up for the Dartmouth Destroyers football organization.

“We are extremely happy to have Spencer join our football family,” commented Huskies Head Coach Perry Marchese.

Wells issued the following statement after his commitment to the Huskies:

“A lot of factors led to me and making the big decision to commit to SMU; the family atmosphere of the team was amazing and I felt welcomed by everyone I’ve met with in the team/school.”

“SMU is loaded with lots of young and upcoming athletes and I am excited to be a part of this group. I feel like we can be a real force in the CIS in upcoming years.”

“Over the years, I have been coached by multiple SMU football players and they have always been great role models for me.  So the reality of becoming that role model for kids is a great opportunity and I look forward to every second of it.”

“Since grade 8 I have been coaching minor league football for the Dartmouth Destroyers and have grown a great connection with a lot of the kids. After talking to other schools and really thinking about leaving home and the kids I coach, I realized that I couldn’t do it. I’ve spent too many hours putting in hard work with the kids to just pack up and leave them.”

“Another huge factor for me is that a lot of my former teammates have committed to SMU as well and I look forward to continuing to grind it out on the field with them.”

“I am excited to attend SMU and further my education, and at the same time work day in and day out to help my new team improve and get back to that AUS title and hopefully a Vanier in front of all my friends and family here in Halifax. Go Huskies!”
