Pair of CFC100 defensive lineman join Manitoba Bisons herd

Manitoba adds a local recruit and an out-of-province recruit to their Class of 2018.

When the 2018 season commences, the Manitoba Bisons will be welcoming two top-tier players into their locker room in CFC100 Mitchell Morgan, a defensive end from Kelowna Secondary School, and CFC100 Tyson Spence, a defensive lineman from Grant Park High School.

Nestled in the interior of British Columbia, Kelowna Secondary School stands silhouetted against distant mountains. The school is home to the Kelowna Owls (BC Secondary Schools Football Association), and to Mitchell Morgan. And by next year, Morgan will be calling Winnipeg, Manitoba, his home.

“I wanted to commit to this school (Manitoba) because I really connect with the head coach,” Mitchell said. “I love the coaching staff and how they do things.”

Entering his second year of football, the 6’4, 255lbs athlete is a former MVP and a league all-star. He is interested in taking business.

Tyson Spence already calls Winnipeg, Manitoba, home. He told that the University of Manitoba was on his commitment radar because he would like to be with his mother and father. He added that his parents are the most influential people in his life and he owes a lot of his success to the lessons he has learned from them.

Standing at 6’3, 265lbs, he currently plays with his high school team, the Grant Park Pirates (Winnipeg High School Football League). In 2016, he recorded 31 tackles, seven sacks, one pass deflection and one forced fumble. In 2015, he was rookie of the year. He was a member of the 2017 edition of Team Manitoba at the Football Canada Cup. Spence has also played with the St. James Rods (Manitoba Minor Football Association), the Crescentwood Grizzlies (MMFA) and the Corydon Comets (MMFA).
