Jarvis James is a running back from Calgary’s Bishop O’Byrne Collegiate. Jarvis was also a high school teammate of fellow Huskie recruit, Brayden Twarynski. Jarvis will be playing for Team South in the upcoming Alberta Senior Bowl.
Jarvis spoke with Huskie Outsider midway through spring camp. “It’s been a great camp with high intensity…everybody is really good here.” James really stood out during the paws drill near the end of Friday’s practice, rushing for 3 TD’s. “I made some good reads during that drill. The thing I need to work on is pass protection and recognizing the play. It’s a different game at the CIS level. The speed is so much faster than high school; it’s not that there’s a couple of good players, everybody is good…they’re here for a reason. After a couple of practices, I’ve already started to get a little more accustomed to the speed.”
Prior to camp, Coach Towriss discussed Jarvis James with Huskie Outsider. “He was a Huskie summer football camp attendee. He’s very quick, very shifty, a great outside runner, and he has very good high end speed.”
Next week, we’ll have comments from running backs coach, Dan Houle regarding Jarvis, the other tailback recruits, the veteran rb’s, how the backfield looked in spring camp, and what to look forward to from this unit come fall.
