Ex-KSS Owl leads Thunderbirds defence in conference final vs Calgary

Former KSS Owls’ star Taylor Loffler continues to be a key figure in the UBC Thunderbirds success in the 2015 Canada West football season.

The 6-foot-3 safety has been named the conference’s defensive player of the week for his effort in UBC’s 34-26 win over the Dinos Saturday in the Hardy Cup game.

Loffler, who joined the T’Birds this season from Boise State, recorded 11.5 tackles to pace the UBC defence.

It was the Thunderbirds first Canada West title since 1997.

In all, Loffler won three Canada West defensive player awards, also earning the honours in weeks 2 and 5 of the regular season.

Loffler and the T’Birds will face the St. Francis Xavier X-Men in the Uteck Bowl this Saturday in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.

The winner will move on to the Vanier Cup national final on Nov. 28.
