Logistical discussions are currently underway to form a new Lethbridge Junior Football Club.

An application has been submitted for the team, which will be known as the Lethbridge Vipers, to be part of the Prairie Football Conference, as part of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL).

The league currently consists of 18 teams playing in five provinces. The CJFL is a highly competitive post-high school football opportunity, open to young men between 17 and 22 years old.

The goal is for the Lethbridge club to create a home for athletes to continue their football career and attract more student-athletes to the city.

The Lethbridge Vipers’ inaugural season is anticipated to begin in the summer of 2022. Their home field will be the University of Lethbridge Community Stadium on the west side.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
