U of S Huskies snag CFC100, 2 others

Huskies welcome two local commits and one out-of-province commit to their team.

In the end, it was the University of Saskatchewan Huskies that won out for CFC100 Kalin Betts, an offensive lineman from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute, and defensive back Logan Bitz and defensive end Connor Delahey from the Saskatoon Hilltops (CJFL).

CFC100 Kalin Betts

As his recruitment winded down, Kalin Betts had a difficult decision ahead of him. “I was so blessed to receive offers from many different, outstanding schools across Canada. All the schools across Canada have outstanding academic reputations and each of their teams have a great, supportive football coaching staff,” he said.

“This made this decision extremely difficult. In the end I choose Saskatchewan because it has an outstanding reputation for both academics and a great football team,” he added. “The support from the community of Saskatoon for their university football team is nothing short of incredible and there is a tremendous amount of knowledge that I will not get to learn from Head Coach Flory.”

Speaking of coaches, Betts said Flory is “among the best players to every play the game of football. He was player of the year twice, won three Grey Cups and in 2018 was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame. His knowledge and passion for the game is an inspiration and I consider myself blessed to be given the opportunity to play for him.”

The 6’4, 295lbs offensive guard spent six years with the Lethbridge CI Rams (SAHSFL). He also participated in two ABC Bowls in 2016 and 2017 and was an MVP. He was also a Rams and a SAHSFL MVP in 2017 and 2018. The product of Lethbridge, Alberta, is interested in finance.

Logan Bitz

Logan Bitz is a hometown boy and has been with the Saskatoon Hilltops since 2016. Now it is time to play for another hometown team. “It’s getting the chance to play at home and not worry about having to move away,” Bitz said of his commitment. “And, the U of S had just won the CanWest, so that is always a bonus.”

He added that, “I’ve had most of the coaching staff coach me in camps or (with) Team Saskatchewan, so I know most of them pretty well and I think they’re great.”

Bitz, who is interested in forensic psychiatry, is a three-time national champion with the Hilltops. He was also the defensive MVP for the 2018 national championship game. Before joining the Hilltops, the 5’11, 195lbs athlete played three seasons with the St. Joseph Guardians (SSSAD).

Connor Delahey

Connor Delahey is a teammate of Bitz. In 2018, he had 14 tackles in nine games (six regular season, 2 playoff and one championship). He also had four assisted tackles, 16 special teams tackles and three assisted special teams tackles. He had six sacks, one fumble and one fumble recovery for a touchdown. The 6’3, 230lbs defensive end and linebacker was also a member of the Bishop James Mahoney Saints (SSSAD) in high school, which is located in his hometown of Saskatoon.
