Committing to Manitoba a ‘no-brainer’ for local commit

Bisons bring in a Winnipeg area commit to their Class of 2017.

Reilly Gordon, a linebacker from Collège Lorette Collegiate, will be saving the travel time after committing to the University of Manitoba Bisons.

Originally from Grande Pointe, Manitoba, which is near Winnipeg, the chance to play for a local team didn’t slip past Gordon.

“I chose to commit to the UofM Bisons based on the great facility, team, management and that I’m from the Winnipeg area,” he said. “It is a no-brainer with all the talent that has been coming from UofM. It has always been an aspiration of mine to play for the Bisons.”

In his career, Gordon has seen his fair share of coaches. He has played with the St. Vital Mustangs from ages seven to 13. He spent three years with the Lorette Scorpions (Winnipeg High School Football League). This past season, he played midget ball with the Greendell Falcons (Midget Football League of Manitoba).

“The (Bisons’) coaching staff, from my experience, are some of the most knowledgeable people I’ve been coached by and I think they’ll be able to help me develop as a university athlete,” Gordon said.

Standing at 6’1, 190lbs, the SAM linebacker was the WHSFL’s 2015 defensive player of the year. In 2013, he was the rookie of the year for the WHSFL Division A.
