Two #CFC100s & another Browns player join Dinos

Calgary adds three more Calgarians to their 2017 commitment class

They’ve been teammates throughout their high school career and now Cole Belway, #CFC100 Logan Bandy and #CFC100 Joseph Dutton from the St. Francis Browns (Alberta School Athletics Association) will get to continue their football career together as members of the Calgary Dinos.

Belway, who plays quarterback, stands at 6’2, 185lbs and has close family history with the Dinos organization. “My father and uncle played for the Dinos and were on the 1983 & 1985 Vanier Cup Championship teams. I wanted to contribute to the legacy established by the family name,” Belway said.

“Since my father played for the Dinos and is an active coach in the system, many of the Dino’s coaches are people my father once played with. I have gotten to know them over the years and have participated in many football camps with many of them – great people, great coaches,” Belway added.

While the young football player has connections to the team, his decision, however, was based on academics first. Belway wants to enter the kinesiology program, which is a highly recognized program at the University of Calgary. After, he hopes to complete a Masters degree.

Beyond family ties and academics, Belway also feels he can fit into the mantra of the team. “The Dinos are a top Division 1, CIS team that play a pro-style offence. That’s what I am already accustomed to and felt playing for this team would be a good fit,” Belway said.

Belway said that he is privileged to say that he is currently playing for the #CFC50 No.1 ranked Division 1 school in Canada, the St. Francis Browns. He has also played with the Calgary Maverick Midget Football and Calgary Cowboys Midget Football (Calgary Area Midget Football Association).

In his career, he has won two cities championships in 2014 & 2015 and a provincial championship in 2015 with St. Francis. In 2016, he was named as the quarterback MVP for Midget Football and was a two-timed city finalist for Midget Football. He has also been awarded the Male Athlete of the Year for the past four out of five years and has earned Academic Honour Roll with Distinction for the past 5 years in a row.

“I am grateful to have been given this opportunity to pursue football at a CIS level and for a sport I have played for such a minimal period of time. I play with a constant desire to win. Not at the expense of others, but because competition brings out the best in me,” Belway said.

He added that, “I treat both the game and players with respect and make a concerted effort to lead by example and uphold a certain standard of integrity as an aspiring athlete.”

Dinos’ defensive coordinator Matt Berry had nothing but praise for Belway. He said that, “Cole Belway is a bright, young quarterback that works so hard on his game and has shown to be a great leader with a strong arm.”

Logan Bandy will be bringing size to the offensive line; the young offensive tackle is 6’5, 240lbs. He said that he decided to stay in Calgary and commit to the Dinos because it was the best option for him. He described the opportunity to play for such a great program as a dream come true.

“The Dinos are a renowned program and are ranked nationally. They are without a doubt one of the best programs in Canada. The team has a great coaching staff. Led by Coach Wayne Harris, is a team of coaches that I believe will set me and the team up for a great amount of success,” he said.

Like Belway, the Calgarian Bandy has also played with the Mavericks in minor football. He has played with Team Alberta in the Canada Cup over the past two years. In his eight-year career, he was a league all-star in the CAMFA and in high school in 2015 and 2016. He is currently looking into the university’s science program, but more specifically, the biology program. Bandy also cracked the #CFC100 Class of 2017 2nd ed.

“I am excited to play in the future for such a great program,” he said of his new team.

Coach Berry praised his new addition, saying that, “Logan Bandy is great young offensive tackle. He is very technically sound as a player and has some great feet.”

Joe Dutton will also bring size to the defensive line. The linebacker, who plays at the middle or outside linebacker position, is 6’3, 195lbs. He has played on the Calgary Cowboys and participated in the Alberta Summer Games in 2012. In 2012 and 2013, he was recognized for his skill and leadership talents. In 2013, he was the CAMFA Most Outstanding Linebacker. He also made it onto the #CFC100 Class of 2017 2nd ed.

“I felt that the combination of education and football excellence made it the best choice to commit to the Dinos. They’ve enjoyed tremendous success in the last few years and I’m excited to help contribute to that continued success,” Dutton said of his new team.

“I’ve been coached by many of the coaches on the staff and I’ve heard nothing but positive things about the rest. The combination of intensity and commitment makes them a great group that I’m excited to play for,” he added.

The young outside linebacker is looking at going into teaching. He has been playing foorball for 7 years now. In 2015 and 2016, he was Canada Cup all-star and midget all-star. In 2015, he was a captain for Team Canada and a high school all-star.

“Joseph Dutton is one of the top linebackers in the country, has the size, speed and instincts to be a top level CIS player,” Coach Berry said of his defensive commit.

“Three great young men from St. Francis here in Calgary are joining a long tradition of Browns that have become Dinos. I am happy to have these three guys join us and bring their football skills and high academic achievement,” Coach Berry said.
