Defensive back Michael Adetola and his St. Francis Xavier X-Men tackle the Calgary Dinos in Saturday’s Mitchell Bowl semi-final, with a Vanier Cup berth on the line.

If Adetola’s team wins, they advance to the Canadian championship game against either the Laval Rouge et Or or Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks.

Adetola, a New Westminster native, spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons in Chilliwack and was named the team’s most improved player in 2014.
