The University of Calgary football Dinos continue to sign players for the 2016 season. Head Coach Wayne Harris today confirmed that Adam Sinagra has signed a Canadian Interuniversity Sports Letter of Intent to attend the University of Calgary.
Sinagra has four years of CIS eligibility remaining having starred the past two years for John Abbott College Islanders in Saint-Anne-de-Bellevue, PQ. He has been at John Abbott CEGEP for the past three seasons.
The 6’1”, 190 lbs. Sinagra visited Calgary over the summer and was recruited by numerous CIS schools from Eastern Canada, ultimately making his choice to sign with the Dinos this past weekend.
Offensive Coordinator Ryan Sheahan is familiar with the attributes of Sinagra having seen him play on several occasions while Sheahan was coaching at Queen’s University.
“Adam sees the field extremely well and is very athletic. He has next level arm strength,” states Sheahan of the 20 year old native of Chateauguay, Quebec. “Adam has the makings of a premier CIS quarterback,” Sheahan states.
“Calgary is a great opportunity academically, on the football field, and off the football field for me,” states Sinagra who plans to study international economics.
“I felt at right at home during my visit summer. I realize with Andrew (Buckley) leaving an opportunity exists. I want to play on a contending team and Calgary’s program is that. I also like the approach of Coach Harris towards football and outside of football. I also look forward to Coach Sheahan pushing me on offense,” Sinagra stated.
Before being injured last year in six games the CEGEP league in offense and total yardage. He is currently coached by Pat Gregory, who previously was an offensive coordinator for the University of Montreal.
Sinagra will complete his studies for the current semester at John Abbott and enrol in courses at the University of Calgary in January 2016. Adam will train with the Dinos in the off-season. He previously played with the Chateauguay Raiders and St. Laurent Spartans before playing for the Islanders.
