Coach Snoop says:
• EXCITEMENT, EXCITEMENT and EXCITEMENT! We’re finally here, after a long off season, we are just excited to play our first game and to finally hit someone in a different jersey. Players, all we care about this week is heart. We want to prove to each other, man-to-man, that a team is more important than being an individual. I would like to say that I am very proud of our player’s work ethic for this first game
• The Calgary Colts would like to welcome everyone to attend the move to the Edge field Monday August 18 @7pm. This event is a huge moment for the Colts, for they now have a place to call their home. The Colts would love to share this moment with Family, Friends, Fans, and Alumni.
Colt of the Week:
NAME: Jakub Jakoubed
POSITION: Defensive Line Backer
COACH SNOOP’S COMMENT: When we talk about heart for this week Jakub exhibits it to a T in every day practice; not only on defense but on all the special teams he’s on as well. Jakub always shows heart for his team and the game. He has also shown incredible leadership for being a young guy, which is quite remarkable and makes it a deserving recognition for the Colt of the Week!
POSITION COACH: Coach Stavro is Jakub’s position Coach. Jakub deserves Colt of the week because he brings a lot of energy and youth to our team, is explosive, and not scared to get his nose dirty. Jakub also embraces the little violence that is within the game and uses it to his advantage. Jakub Jakoubek is the future of our Colts defense and is an excellent candidate for Colt of the week.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A COLT: 2 years
WHAT ARE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO FOR THE 2014 SEASON:
The thing I am most excited for this season is the Colts coming together as a family and having everyone working with each other to achieve our 1 beat!
WHO’S YOUR FOOTBALL IDOL? Ray Lewis is my football idol because he has not only gains experience through the good times but from the worst experiences too. Lewis only preaches positive messages and never dwells on the bad experiences but instead learns from them!
Colt August Babies!
Wish these Colts players a happy birthday!
