Brayden Twarynski is a defensive line recruit from Calgary. Brayden joins the Dogs after having played for Bishop O’Byrne Collegiate, and Team Alberta.
Brayden was asked what led to him selecting the UofS over other programs. “I can’t pinpoint one thing,” he stated. “There were so many reasons. This is a great coaching staff and team environment. This football program has an incredible facility to train. I’ve got lots of family here too.” Brayden will be enrolled in the College of Engineering.
During the mid-point of camp, Brayden was asked for his reaction to the start of his CIS career. “It’s lots of fun. There’s an adjustment that needs to be made to the speed of the game at this level – it’ll take time, but I’m slowly working on it.” Twarynski went on to comment about his areas of strength, and where he needs to improve. “I’d like to think that my speed is pretty good for where I need to be at this level. I’ll need to work on some of the technical things such as hand positioning. Every little step counts now, and you can’t mess up at all.”
Prior to camp, Coach Towriss had this to say about Brayden: “He’s one of the top defensive linemen in western Canada. He’s a very good offensive lineman too, but he’ll be playing on the DLine for us. He’s big, mobile, and has a great work ethic.”
