UBC’s history of success attracts 2

UBC adds one provincial commit and one out-of-province commit to their 2019 class.

Kyle Samson, a defensive tackle from Cardinal Newman Catholic Secondary School, and Sam Steele, an offensive lineman from St. Thomas Moore Collegiate, are excited to be a part of the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds.

Kyle Samson

When the summer rolls around, Kyle Samson will be packing his bags and heading west. “I chose to commit to UBC for its great business program and its successful football program,” he said. “Having a head coach with a history of success and a defensive coordinator like Coach Tracey, who has a mobile and dynamic defence, definitely contributed to my decision.”

Samson, who will be taking business, played with the Cardinal Newman Cardinals (HWCAA) and the Hamilton Varsity Tiger-Cats (OPFL). The 6’3, 260lbs defensive tackle and end is from Hamilton, Ontario. In 2018, he won a Fox 40 award for academic and athletic excellence. He also was a senior football MVP and recipient of an athletics leadership award.

Sam Steele

Sam Steele is already familiar with West Coast football. The product of Burnaby, BC, played with the St. Thomas More Collegiate Knights (BCSSFA) in high school. Standing at 6’1, 225lbs, he plays as a guard and nose guard. He was a AAA defensive MVP in 2017.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
