“As with any junior football team your goal is to coach up players so they can move up in their football career. We were successful last year and have some big shoes to fill and I am confident we have done that. I am also extremely happy with our defensive line as we have many talented returning players this season,” said Coach Cardilicchia.

Coach Cardilicchia traveled as far as Nova Scotia to Alberta to find the talent he was looking for and it has paid off. With veteran players such as: Quarterback Scott Borden who played part of the season last year with the Rebels, Raisuan Provo Running Back from University of Carlton, and Receiver from the Toronto Grizzlies Desron Kier the team is going to be well-rounded.
