Calgary Colts

Our Story

CJFL Prairie Football Conference Members

A pair of national championships and an impressive list of players who went on to professional careers are obvious success stories in the history of the Calgary Colts. For long time General Manager Keith Evans and other volunteers who serve the junior football club, the biggest victory has been providing young men aged 17-22 years a chance to play at a highly competitive level.

The present-day club evolved from the North Hill Colts, who competed in the Alberta Junior Football League (AJFL) with the Calgary Mohawks, Edmonton Huskies and Edmonton Wildcats.


Championship Winners


Always competitive, the Colts captured their first national championship in 1989. Under the direction of head coach Keith Kendall, the Colts finished fourth in the regular season and then shocked Regina and Saskatoon in the playoffs. The Colts staged another upset in the Canadian Bowl, defeating the favored Burlington Tiger Cats 23-6 at McMahon Stadium.

The following year the Colts placed second in the regular season and beat the Hilltops in overtime at McMahon Stadium in the semifinals. Calgary then beat the Rams at Regina to win the conference. The playoff trail was long in 1990 as the Colts beat the no. 1 Surrey Rams at Vancouver and the Thunder Bay Giants in a game at Winnipeg. The Colts then rolled to a 50-15 win over the host Windsor AKO to claim their second consecutive Canadian Bowl.

Thank you to the Medicine Hat Mohawks for the invitation to speak at your awards banquet. The catered roast beef dinner was as good as any wedding I'd been to this year. The entire coaching staff received a finely crafted green storage box made by one of the players grandpa's with the teams logo on it and the entire 23 graduating players received special edition jerseys. @MHHSMohawks
