Continuing our tour around the BCFC, we stop in Langley to see what the 2018 Cullen Cup Champion Langley Rams have been up to this off-season. We look at a few new faces who have committed to the Rams, and get some thoughts and expectations from Rams Head Coach Howie Zaron
Cole Barron (LB) joins the Rams, after spending the 2018 season with the UBC Thunderbirds.
Coach Zaron on Barron – “Cole will be a big and physical presence in the middle of defense this year. We expect playmaking and leadership and for Cole to provide a lot for our defense on the field this year. We are excited for what he brings to the table."
Yanni Angelopoulos (DL) joins the Rams from the St. Mary’s Huskies program.
Coach Zaron on Angelopoulos – “Yanni will be tough for Offensive Lineman to get their hands on him because he’s like the Tasmanian devil in size and athletic ability. He should be a nightmare match-up in the trenches this year.”
Andrew Pocrnic (RB) joins the Rams from the Kamloops Broncos organization.
Coach Zaron on Pocrnic – “Andrew is a veteran in our league, and a five star running back. He has speed, he’s physical, elusive, blocks well, and catches the ball well out of the backfield. We are excited to see what Poc does this year.”
With Head Coach Shane Beatty taking over half-way through the season last year and JC Boice rejoining the team late in the season as Offensive Coordinator, the dynamic duo is back together and are focused on winning another Cullen Cup Championship.
“It is exciting for Shane and I to be back together coaching. What we did in 2016 was special and we have laid solid plans to reestablish Rebel greatness for the 2019 season. We are bringing in some very good coaches and players and our goal is to win a national championship for the Westshore community,” says Coach Boice.
