UBC rebuild excites Edmonton recruit

Edmonton receiver joins CWUAA team’s 2015 class.

Connor Bergersen will be moving to the West Coast to commence his CIS career.

Recently, the 6’3, 190 pound receiver from Edmonton, Alberta committed to the University of British Columbia (UBC) Thunderbirds.  Bergersen will join the team for the 2015 CWUAA season.

“I committed to UBC because the school checks all of the important boxes for me – environment, education, and football,” explained Bergersen of his decision.  “Vancouver is a great city, so combining that with an institution as highly renowned as UBC was certainly a main factor in my decision.”

“As far as their football program, I strongly believe in Blake Nill’s ability to build something successful. I am extremely excited to have him as a coach and I am looking forward to seeing this program be rebuilt from the ground up. I wanted to be a part of that.”

The receiver comes to the Thunderbirds after completing a stint with the Edmonton Huskies of the Prairie Football Conference (PFC) in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL). Previous to the Huskies, Bergersen played for Salisbury Sabres of the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA).
