Okanagan Sun quarterback signs letter of intent with University of Calgary

After two seasons with the B.C. Football Conference’s Okanagan Sun, quarterback Josiah Joseph is moving on to the CIS.

The Peachland product has signed a letter of intent to play next season with the University of Calgary Dinos .

Joseph, a graduate of Mt. Boucherie, set a new passing efficiency record in the BCFC in 2015 at 68 per cent, while throwing for 1,327 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Joseph is looking forward to a new phase of his career and education.

“Calgary is a great opportunity for me to come and compete for a spot,” said the 6-foot-3, 210 pound Joseph who split time with starter Cam Bedore at quarterback this past season. “I like the culture that’s present and the family aspect of the team.”

Sun past president Paul Carson has high praise for Joseph.

“We are very excited that Josiah has committed to the Calgary Dinos program,” said Carson. “He is a tremendous young man who has a bright future at the CIS level. Josiah is a mature and talented young man who has a tremendous amount of upside.”

Joseph will enroll in the kinesiology program in January at U of C to begin his academic career, as well as training with the Dinos in the offseason.

Huber and Delinte to Regina…

The University of Regina Rams have landed a pair of Sun all-Canadians for next season

Thomas Huber and Cord Delinte have both signed CIS letters of intent to join the Canada West program in the Saskatchewan capital.

“Cord and Thomas are coming from what’s simply a great program over in Kelowna,” said Rams coach Mike Gibson. “Cord is an extremely physical player and while he was excellent at halfback for the Sun, we’ll be looking at him at free safety.

“Thomas is a multi-talented athlete and really fills two needs for us.”

Delinte, from Lundbreck, Alta., a starter at defensive back for the Sun, had 26 tackles and five pass deflections, while adding two interceptions in three playoff games.

Huber, from North Vancouver, graduated from the Sun in 2015 after four seasons with the program.

An all-Canadian as a kicker, he connected on 20 of 27 field goal attempts and added 75 of 76 converts. Also a receiver, Huber caught 28 passes for 424 yards and three touchdowns.
