University of Calgary football Head Coach Wayne Harris confirmed that cornerback Brayden Laurie has signed a USports of Intent to attend the school beginning in September 2017.
A 5’9”, 165 lbs. defensive back, Brayden has been a two year starter for the Henry Wisewood Warriors in the Calgary Senior High School League under Head Coach Cody Ehrmann. Laurie played his minor football for the Bulldogs in the Calgary Midget Football League and was a member of the Alberta U18 team this past summer.
An excellent student, Brayden will enroll in the Faculty of Kinesiology at U of C. He is the son of Stephen and Helania Laurie.
“I liked my meeting with Coach Harris as well as the academic part of the program at Calgary. I know the coaches with the Dinos and wanted to stay here,” stated Laurie who started his football career as a receiver before moving to the other side of the football.
“The team atmosphere at Calgary is excellent and I know players on the team,” added Laurie who spoke with Simon Fraser, Manitoba, and Alberta in the recruitment process.
“Brayden is a hard working skilled secondary player from Wiswood and should follow in the radition of solid Henry Wisewood defensive backs,” states recruiting coordinator Matt Berry.
Laurie who originally hails from Victoria, BC heard good things about current secondary coach Marcello Rapini and how he develops defensive backs which helped influence his decision.
