Calgary Colts Information Release:

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.

National Champions


Always competitive, the Colts captured their first national championship in 1989.

The Colts staged another upset in the Canadian Bowl, defeating the favored Burlington Tiger Cats 23-6 at McMahon Stadium.

National Champions


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.
