Medicine Hat recruit ecstatic to be part of “something special” with Golden Bears (VIDEO)

Medicine Hat fullback/defensive end joins CWUAA team’s 2016 class.

Chayse Kopeck decided to seize a unique opportunity that was too good to pass up.

Recently, the 6’3, 240 pound fullback/defensive end from Medicine Hat committed to the University of Alberta Golden Bears.  Kopeck will join the team for the 2016 CWUAA season.

“I committed to Alberta because I feel if I went there, then I would have a lot more opportunities after football to have a very successful life,” explained Kopeck of his decision.  “[Head Coach] Chris Morris made that very clear when we spoke about his philosophy of education over football and I just feel safe knowing that I have full capabilities of having a successful life after football if I go to this program.”

“As well Alberta is in a rebuilding stage and they are getting better each and every year and being part of that would be something special.”

This fall, Kopeck is completing his final season with Monsignor McCoy Colts of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA). During his career, he has played at the defensive end and linebacker positions as well as on the offensive line.
