The University of Calgary Dinos continue to work on recruiting trail and confirmed the signing of outstanding offensive line prospect Dawson Drewniak from Henry Wisewood High School in Calgary. He becomes the second player from Henry Wisewood to commit to the Dinos thus far following teammate Ronnie Hopkins. He also played last year with defensive back Josh Quarles who earlier committed to the Dinos.
Drewniak was a starting member of the 2014 Alberta team at the Canada Cup in Saskatoon and is a former Calgary Midget Football League all-star for the Northern Raiders. He spent much of youth in Airdrie, AB., before moving to Calgary in Grade 10. Dawson was a member of the Calgary Bantam Selects for two years that competed in St. Louis, MO.
While playing for the Warriors in High School Dawson played both along the offensive and defensive lines for Coach Cody Ehrmann.
“Dawson is an elite offensive lineman and one of the top players in his position in Calgary. We are excited about having him join our program,” states recruiting coordinator Matt Berry.
“I felt Calgary was best place for me to grow as an athlete and student. My High School coaches were supportive of me going to the Calgary,” states Drewniak who was pursued by the Universities of Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Dawson is the son of Ross and Cheryl Drewniak and will study Social Sciences at the U of C in the fall of 2016.
