  • After a highly anticipated race for his services, CFC60 OT Tyrone Webber has chosen the Cowboy life with his commitment to Oklahoma State. The JUCO product out of New Mexico Military Institute is another Canadian who made his dreams come true thanks to the Broncos program, and really it’s a testament to Webber’s determination after leaving Wellend behind where he suited up for CFC50 Notre Dame. Oklahoma State won out against 29 other programs including Syracuse, Illinois, Texas A&M, Boise State, Houston, West Virginia, Auburn, Baylor, Mississippi State and Oregon State among many others. Webber will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Oklahoma State alumni CFC100s RB Chuba Hubbard and LB Amen Ogbongbemiga who both made their NFL debuts this season.Ā 


  • Speaking of CFC100s RB Chuba Hubbard and LB Amen Ogbongbemiga, it was also a milestone week for the former Canadian Cowboys as Oklahoma State slowly become Canada’s favourite program. After taking over starting duties in Carolina due to an injury to Christian McCaffrey, Hubbard followed up his first 100 yard game last week with his first touchdown in a heartbreaking overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Despite the loss, it’s safe to say Hubbard is starting to find his groove as a rookie, and will be getting plenty of more playing time in the next three weeks with McCaffrey being placed on IR. Meanwhile his former teammate Ogbongbemiga made headlines after earning his first NFL start for the Los Angeles Chargers in a tough loss to the Baltimore Ravens. The scoreboard didn’t reflect it at the end of the day, but it was a massive achievment for the young man from Calgary who recorded eight total tackles after grabbing a job with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of training camp.


  • Lastly we head to the NCAA to cover a couple big time performances from Canadians. We begin with former top ranked CFC100 WR John Metchie who caught seven passes for 117 yards and a touchdown against Mississippi State, which helped Alabama get back in the playoff hunt earning the 4th spot on the rankings this week. Then it was a great day for UConn football who ended their 11 game losing streak against Yale with some help from CFC100 WR Kevens Clericus who caught three passes for 26 yards and a touchdown, plus CFC100 DE Lwal Uguak was stout on defence recording two tackles and four quarterback hurries.Ā Ā
