SMU adds 2 late additions to defense

SMU adds two out-of-province commits to their team.

Defensive linemen Yanni Angelopoulos from New Westminster Secondary School and Aquille Ambrose from the Edmonton Wildcats (CJFL) will be packing their bags and flying to the east coast after signing with the Saint Mary’s University Huskies.

Yanni Angelopoulos

By Alan Wardle.

When Yanni Angelopoulos treks across to the other side of the country, he knows he will be in good hands with the Huskies.

“I chose to commit to SMU because I have heard many great things about the team and the coaching staff, which really appealed to me,” Angelopoulos said. “Great coaching staff, haven’t met them all in person but I have heard great things!”

Standing at 5’11, 260lbs, Angelopoulos has spent eight years with the New Westminster Hyacks (BCSSFA) in his hometown of New Westminster, BC. He helped his team win an AAA junior varsity provincial championship in 2015. In 2017, he was a western conference all-star, a BC defensive lineman all-star and lineman of the championship game. He also won an AAA varsity championship last season and partook in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge ‘Battle of the Best.’

Aquille Ambrose

Aquille Ambrose calls Edmonton, Alberta, home where he played with the McNally Tigers (MEHSFL) in high school. He has played for the Edmonton Wildcats since 2016 as a defensive end and tackle. He is 6’2, 220lbs.
