Message from the Coach

During the 2017 season, the Seawolves continued to move forward in the rebuilding process; a young team, the group played with pride, grit, and courage throughout the season. Rebuilding years can be difficult, but they also offer a great opportunity for young men–both rookies and returning players–to leave their mark on the legacy of the team.  With a young team, first year players have the opportunity to step immediately into a starting role.  Already this recruiting season, several excellent prospects have committed to playing with the Wolves in 2018.  To begin with, Carter Posavad, a CFC 2018 top prospect at quarterback and Nova Scotia High School Football champion from Citadel, will be playing with the Seawolves in the upcoming season.  Carter will be studying Business at UNB Saint John.  Jonathan Marino, a high school standout from Kennebecasis Valley High School (“KVHS”), will be joining the team while he attends UNBSJ and studies engineering.  As a running back with KVHS, Jonathan was named the 2017 Offensive Player of the Year in the New Brunswick 10 man league (Pool B).  Offensive Lineman of the Year (Pool B), out of Saint Malachy’s High School, Bailey Owen is also joining the Wolves.   Receiver, Riley Ring-Dineen, a two-time NB High School All-Star, plans to study psychology and will be also be playing with the Wolves in 2018.  Garrett Dewar from the St. Stephen Spartans is another of the most recent to commit.  A former NB Defensive Player of the Year (2016, 10 man, Pool B) and Defensive All-Star (2017), Garrett will be studying at the New Brunswick Community College (NBCC) while playing with the Wolves.  Colin Sleigh, CFC Top 100 Recruit in Canada as well as Top 10 Defensive Back in Canada, is also joining the team.  Also, Taylor Rambljak will join the team.  Taylor quarterbacked the KVHS Crusaders to a league championship in the 2017 season, and he will be attending UNB Saint John this fall.  In addition to a complement of outstanding rookies, the 2018 Wolves will be powered by a core of returning players.   Look for Anders Blizzard, 2017 AFL All-Star at receiver, to have a standout season.  Running back, Godfred Agbovi returns after an impressive rookie season.  On the defensive line, AFL All-Star Jarred Fawcett returns  along with Tyler Ring-Dineen, Daniel Nason, and Deion Turcotte.   Tim Crawford, former NB Defensive Player of the Year and member of Team New Brunswick, is also returning to the team at linebacker. In short, we are looking forward to the 2018 season with optimism.
