Falconer signs with UBC

Grade 12 W.J. Mouat student Elijah Falconer will get a chance to help defend the Vanier Cup this fall.

Falconer officially committed to the UBC Thunderbirds football team on March 7, and joins the team that upset the Canadian Interunivesity Sport football world last fall by winning the top prize.

The 6’6” wide receiver starred for years on the Hawks, and had 333 yards receiving and two touchdowns in six games played last season with Mouat.

He was also part of the Hawks senior boys basketball team that placed fourth in B.C. at the 4A provincials on Saturday.

Falconer joins Mouat grad Levi Hua and Bateman grad Tanner Friesen on the team. Both players were part of last year’s championship squad.

The Thunderbirds return to the gridiron to begin the defence of their Vanier Cup championship in the fall.
