Regina Rams bring in out-of-province commit

Regina welcomes an Albertan to their 2017 class.

Sometimes making such an important decision as what university to attend isn’t as hard as it sounds when the university has so many attractive features. Just ask Blake Turner, a defensive tackle from Bishop O’Bryne High School, who is set to become a Regina Ram after committing to the team.

“The university of Regina appealed to me in many ways. The schooling they have there I feel is one of the best and I believe it can give me the best opportunities. I look forward to the smaller atmosphere and campus life to help me achieve this goal,” the future business student said.

“The football program is the added bonus and where I hope to spend some great years. The atmosphere not only on the field but off the field is excellent and I believe it’s a program that is only getting better from here on out,” he added.

The 6’1, 260lbs Bishop O’Byrne Bobcat (Calgary Senior High School Athletic Association) has only been involved in the sport for three years. While primary a defensive tackle, he has moved around and played different positions on the defensive line throughout his career. With the help of the Regina coaches, he will have a chance to hone his skills.

“The coaching staff was also another reason why I chose the University of Regina. They are there for you both on and off the field and they will do anything to help you excel no matter what you want to do,” Turner said.

“They take great pride in their players and that was apparent when I visited recently. It’s the support they give and the knowledge of the game that helped me make my decision. I know I will learn some great things from them as a player and as a person,” he added.

In his short career, the Calgarian has also suited up with the Calgary Midget Stampeders (Calgary Area Midget Football Association), having won a team award for showcasing character and teamwork in 2016. In 2014, he was named as the most outstanding defensive lineman and linebacker for his junior high school year. In 2015, he won the Two-Way Player award for his senior team. Most recently he has been nominated for the Harry Hood Memorial scholarship, which is presented annually by the CSHSAA and Calgary Booster Club.
