Manitoba Post StaffSports

WINNIPEG – The Manitoba Bison football team will open training camp for the 2018 season on Saturday.

The training camp will run three-weeks, which includes a road pre-season game in Regina on August 22nd and culminates in the Canada West season opener at UBC on Saturday, September 1st at 9:00PM.

Manitoba starts with two-a-day sessions from August 11-19 at the East Field and Investors Group Field.

Heading into the 2018 season, the Bisons have a core of strong returning players seeking to improve on a 2-6 season in 2017. These veterans include third-year running back Jamel Lyles and fifth-year receiver Shai Ross on offence, as well as fourth-year defensive lineman Derek Dufault and fifth-year defensive back Jayden McKoy.

At starting quarterback, there are three players vying for the position after the departure of Theo Deezar: third-year Des Catellier, recruit Scott Borden (Westshore Rebels), and recruit Jonathan Remple (Winnipeg Rifles).
