Spencer Moore of Langley, BC, a linebacker from St. Thomas More Collegiate in Burnaby, BC, and Will Kinnaird of Port Coquitlam, BC, an offensive lineman from Terry Fox Secondary, became the first student-athletes to officially sign National Letters of Intent to compete for Simon Fraser University football program in 2015.
Moore, 6-foot-2 and 240-pounds, was the leading tackler in Triple AAA football this season with 92 tackles and seven sacks. He also played halfback for STM but Clan coaches project him as a defensive lineman in college.
“Spencer is a gifted athlete for his size, he is an excellent defender in space, and he uses his hands well to shed blocks,” said SFU recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach, Bryan Wyllie. “We envision him as a defensive end.”
Kinnaird is a 6-foot-5 and 280-pound offensive lineman who played tackle and guard for the Terry Fox Ravens. He also excels in the classroom and received the 2014 BC High School Football Infigo Scholarship.
“Will is a terrific young man who excels in the classroom and on the field,” said Wyllie. “He has an enormous frame and we see a lot of potential and a bright future.”
February 4 is the first day graduating high school student-athletes can sign National Letters of Intent with NCAA colleges and universities to play football and men's and women's soccer.
