Rams schooling, coaches bring in 3

Rams add three out-of-province commits to their team.

CFC100 Thomas Hyett, a quarterback from Vernon Secondary School, and Dawson Laye, a slotback from Cochrane High School, are looking to improve with the University of Regina Rams.

Odun Ogidan, a running back from the Winnipeg Rifles (CJFL), will also be joining the Rams.

CFC100 Thomas Hyett

Thomas Hyett knows he is in good hands with the Rams. “I chose Regina because of their great schooling and their good football team,” he said. “The coaches in Regina really know what they’re doing, all very nice people as well.”

Standing at 6’4, 210lbs, he played four years of community football and four with the Vernon Panthers (BCSSFA). In 2017, he was the grade 11 offensive ‘player of the year.’ Last season he was a provincial all-star and provincial champion. He has played in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge.

Dawson Laye

For Dawson Laye, it was all about school. “I liked Regina because of the business program,” said Laye, who will be taking business. “Also, we have had some Cochrane guys go out there and they really liked it along with a hometown guy from Cremona.”

Laye, who is 6’0, 160lbs, added that, “I really like the coaches. They focus a lot on making the players better.”

Laye has played for the bantam Cochrane Rage and the Cochrane High School Cobras (RVFL). He also participated in the FPC. He has won provincials the past three years and was named team MVP for the last two.

Odun Ogidan

Odun Ogidan is from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has been with the Rifles since 2014. He participated in the 2018 CFL Western Regional combine. The 5’9, 188lbs athlete ran the 40-yard dash in 4.70 seconds and the shuttle in 4.59. He also had a vertical of 34.50 inches.
