Local Running Back Transfers Home

Running back Myles Browne is returning back to Calgary. The defending 2016 Hardy Cup and Mitchell Bowl Champion University of Calgary Dinos are pleased he is.

A former CFC Top 100 player in 2014 when he led Notre Dame Pride to the City & Provincial Championships under Head Coach Dave Diluzio, Browne spent the past two years at Concordia University in Montreal but only used one of year of college eligibility thereby leaving him with four years remaining.

Browne was Offensive MVP for Notre Dame in 2014 and was also starting member on the 2013 City and Provincial 4A Championship team. Prior to playing High School football he played in the Hilltoppers organization where he played both bantam and midget football. He was coached in Midget football by Roy Lewis.

The 5’11”, 183 lbs. Browne was the starting running back on Team Alberta U18 team in 2014 and was a member of Team Canada that competed in the International Bowl in Arlington, Texas in 2014.

Myles is familiar with many of the current Dino players having played High School football and/or youth football with defensive lineman Jack McEwen, defensive backs Nick and Aaron Statz, offensive lineman Spencer Roy, as well as Steve Finot and Joe Cant.

“Myles was an outstanding running back while at Notre Dame. He has great hands, speed, and vision. He is also familiar with many of our members on our roster,” states Head Coach Wayne Harris.

Browne looked at going to Bishop’s, Alberta and Ottawa in addition to Calgary when he decided to transfer.

“I believe the coaches do a great job getting the players prepared on and off the field. I also like the school a great deal for the academics they have,” stated Browne who will study sociology courses with the hopes of pursuing a career in law and society.
