Queen’s Gaels HC ‘a great guy’ says OL commit

Queen’s welcomes an out-of-province commit to their Class of 2017.

Jacob Butler, a right tackle from Sardis Secondary, will be continuing a family trend after signing with the Queen’s University Gaels.

“Both my parents graduated from Queen’s, so it’s in the family,” Butler said, who is from Chilliwack, BC.

But there was more that drew this west coast commit out east. “When I visited, Head Coach Pat Sheahan seemed to truly care about his players,” Butler said. “He is a great guy.”

Butler added that although he hasn’t met all of the staff, everyone he talked to “seemed to care about the players” and that’s important to him. He also said the campus is great.

The towering 6’5, 285lbs tackle is interested in taking engineering. He spent nine years playing for the Chilliwack Giants (Valley Community Football League) and one with the Langley Stampeders (Vancouver Mainland Football League). In 2016, he was the Alberta-BC Border Bowl’s offensive lineman MVP. While with the Stampeders, the undefeated provincial champions, he was also the team’s offensive lineman MVP.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
