RB commit excited to learn from Bisons’ coaches

Manitoba welcomes a local talent to their Class of 2017.

While some commits have a difficult time choosing between universities, Kaeden Corrie, a running back from Sturgeon Heights Collegiate, found that picking the University of Manitoba was pretty simple.

“It was an easy choice. With one of the most respected and longest tenured head coaches in U Sports, combined with professional level facilities producing national championship winning football teams, it was an easy choice,” Corrie said.

His praise for the Bisons’ coaches didn’t stop there. “Not only is this a successful and long-standing coaching staff, there is a history of past championship team members coming back to coach, and I’m lucky enough to be a direct beneficiary of that growth,” he said.

“This speaks to the integrity of a program any athlete would want to be apart of,” he added.

The 5’7, 188lbs ten-year veteran understands the respect a coach can command. Kas Vidruk, a former Grey Cup champion, coached his paternal grandfather. On his mother’s side, his grandfather Moe Agagnier is a long-time coach in Manitoba and BC. While with the Sturgeon Heights Huskies (Winnipeg High School Football League), he was coached by the 2016 WHSFL coaching staff of the year, which was headed by Eric Vincent.

Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Corrie will have the support of his family behind him. He is one of six siblings, four brothers and a sister. He is currently interested in attending the Asper School of Business.

In his career, he has also played with the St. James Rods (Manitoba Major Junior Football League) and the Charleswood Broncos (MMJFL). He is a three-time WHSFL all-star and Huskies offensive MVP from 2014 to 2016. He has started as a running back with both the U16 and U18 editions of Team Manitoba in those same years. In 2015, he was the CTV bowl MVP. He has also won a Blue and Gold MVP award. In September of 2016, he was CTV’s high school athlete of the week.
