Nigerian born defensive end joins CWUAA team.

Samuel Kuyebi wanted a competitive environment.

Consequently, the 6’3, 240 pound defensive end has committed to the University of Manitoba Bisons for the 2014 CWUAA season.

“Everyone that I have met in the program is striving to make the team as strong as possible,” explained Kuyebi of his commitment.  “My positional coaches Barbour and Glover are both really meticulous and knowledgeable when it comes to coaching and perfecting  defensive linemen as evident by the rate of  success  that many Bison alumni have had transitioning to pro carriers in the CFL and NFL.”

“I also chose Manitoba because of the state of the art facilities and because I consider Winnipeg my home as I have many family and friends here.  I also have a great training facility in Winnipeg as I train at McDoles gym owned by Chris McDole and Dave Beakley which specializes in football and sports specific exercises.”

For his efforts on the field, the defensive standout was selected as a Major All-Star and named Most Improved Nomad.
