Notable distinction

Spruce Grove receiver becomes first CFC TOP 100 player to commit to an AUS team.

With a recent wide receiver’s commitment to a CIS team, he garnered a dubious distinction.

This past weekend, Quinn Polley became the first CFC TOP 100 ranked player to commit to an AUS team.  In 2014, the 5’9, 180 pound offensive standout from Spruce Grove, Alberta will suit up for the Saint Mary’s Huskies.

“I think the main factors that contributed to my decision in the end would be the small class sizes and small roster size as well as the coaches and the comfortable feel I got from being around them,” explained Polley of his decision.  “Overall, it was a very tight environment within the team and it excites me to be a part of their family.

Polley comes to the Huskies bolstered with tremendous experience.  For his high school career, he played for the Parkland Panthers of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA).

In 2011, Polley was selected as Football Alberta’s Bantam Bowl MVP.  This past July, he represented Team Alberta at the 2013 Football Canada Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick. During the tournament, the wide receiver was named Team Alberta’s Offensive Player of the Game against Team Ontario.

He trains in the offseason at Playmaker U, founded by former CFL All-Star Kamau Peterson. Not only has he played at the receiver position, but also at the slotback position and on Special Teams as a return specialist.

The Huskies are thrilled to have landed a CFC TOP 100 player who possesses tremendous talent and experience on the gridiron.

“We are very happy to have Quinn join us at Saint Mary’s,” commented Huskies Head Coach Perry Marchese.  “He is a great addition to the family.”
