Rams stock up on CJFL talent, add 4

Rams add four local commits to their team.

Linebacker Tanner Smith, offensive lineman Brayden Moroz, wide receiver Kris Calcutt and defensive back Tyson Haubrich know one another well, they’ve all been apart of the Regina Thunder (CJFL) for quite some time now. Their journey together isn’t far from over, however, as the teammates head to the University of Regina Rams.

Tanner Smith

Although he wasn’t born in Regina, Saskatchewan, Smith spent most of his life in city, so why leave? He said he committed to the Rams for the chance to stay “home where I grew up (and to) be able to play in front of my friends and family. Also, I felt that they had a great spot open for me to come in and get in rotation and help make a difference on the field.”

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Smith moved to Regina where he played with Regina Minor Football, the Campbell Tartans (RHSAA) and the Regina Thunder. “I’ve known some of the coaches through Team Sask and minor football, so I know what some of them are capable of doing and their knowledge of the game. I’m excited to get to work with them to help improve my game,” he said.

The 6’1, 210lbs outside linebacker is interested in taking business. In 2014, he was an all-star for the Schwann Conference. In 2015, he was the PFC rookie linebacker of the year. Last season, he was the Thunder’s linebacker of the year.

Brayden Moroz

Originally from Brandon, Manitoba, Brayden Moroz has had a taste of Regina living while playing with the Thunder. “I chose to commit to the U of R because I wanted to stay close to home if I could,” he said. “I feel like what I’m looking for academically they hit spot on and they have a strong presence and support in the city by the fans.”

When Moroz met with the coaches, he said they were upfront and honest. “They’re a very smart and experienced group of coaches across the board,” he added. “I’m extremely excited to start a new chapter with the Rams and I hope that we can do some big things these next few years.”

Moroz is interested in police studies. The 6’2, 300lbs center played with the Crocus Plains Plainsmen (WHSFL).

Kris Calcutt

Last year, Kris Calcutt entered his third season with the Thunder. By September, he had 17 receptions and two touchdowns. At this point, he led the Prairie Conference with 405 receiving yards, averaging 23.8 yards per catch. In 2016, he had 32 catches for 566 yards. He also scored six touchdowns. He played with the Campbell Tartans (RHSAA) in high school.

Tyson Haubrich

In 2017, Tyson Haubrich played ten total games with the Thunder, eight regular season and two playoff games. He had a total of 35 tackles, seven assisted tackles and one special teams assisted tackle. He also had four interceptions and three passes defended. Before joining the Thunder, he suited up with the Thom Collegiate Trojans (RHSAA) in his hometown of Regina.
