Evan Zadery always wanted to play the University of Calgary Dinos. He will get to achieve that goal later this year.
The Dinos confirmed the defensive back from Henry Wise Wood High School will attend the U of C when he signed a U Sports Letter of Intent in January 2018.
Evan was a Calgary High School Athletic Association Division I all-star in his senior season playing for former Dinos coaches Cody Ehrman and Tony Fasano in 2017.
“I wanted to stay at home and play for my hometown team supporting the city I grew up in,” stated Zachary who intends on studying Political Science with the goal to eventually work at the United Nations.
The 17 year old Zachary will have plenty of familiar faces on the Dinos. Current recruits Daniel Stefanyk, Carter Johnson, and Martin Levkovski all played High School football with him this past year at Wise Wood and they helped influence his decision to play for the defending Hardy Cup Champions.
“Evan is a good home grown player from Henry Wise Wood. He has good speed and is a hard working young man,” stated Head Coach Wayne Harris.
Evan is the son of Dennis and Lorraine Zadery of Calgary. He was born in Edmonton but moved to Calgary a young child. He is a product of the Stampeders youth football organization where he played pee wee and bantam football, but played midget football for the Colts as his parents moved.
