Foster does fine in CIS debut

Chilliwack's Evan Foster has three sacks in three games to start his university career with the Manitoba Bisons.

Chilliwack’s Evan Foster is off to a solid start with the University of Manitoba Bisons.

The former Chilliwack Minor Football star made the jump from junior football (BCFC Langley Rams) this fall, and has suited up for three regular season games so far.

Foster’s debut came Sept. 5 in a 44-24 road loss to the Saskatchewan Huskies. Foster had two solo tackles and four assists  in the losing effort.

The defensive lineman recorded 1.5 quarterback sacks in his second outing, a 42-18 rout of the Regina Rams Sept. 12.

Foster’s most recent outing was last weekend (Sept. 20), as his Bisons doubled the UBC Thunderbirds 20-10.

Foster had another 1.5 sacks.

There are a handful of Bisons with ties to Chilliwack. Nick Westad has suited up for all three games as a defensive lineman.

GW Graham Grizzly grad Jake Creasey is battling for playing time as a freshman receiver.

Brandon Barrett, a WJ Mouat grad, is trying to make his mark at linebacker.

Abbotsford native Tanner Hamade played for Chilliwack’s Valley Huskers during the 2011 season and is now a part of the Bison secondary.
