Ultimately, the strength of the football program as well as proximity was the main factors for Hall’s decision to commit to the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan team.

“For me the biggest reason I chose the Huskies was because I really enjoy and respect the way they run their team,” explained the CFC 100.  “There’s plenty of competition and intensity at practice which brings out the best in everyone and make the team better.”

“It’s also only a few hours from home for me and I have plenty of friends and family in Saskatoon which I think will make the transition go a lot smoother.”

Hall completed his high school career with Campbell Tartans of the Regina Intercollegiate Football League (RIFL).This past season, he was selected as a RIFL 4A Schwann Conference All-Star.
