Chase Quewezance, one of the top high school OLinemen in western Canada, joins the Huskies from Ross Sheppard Collegiate in Edmonton. “It was unreal,” is how Chase described spring camp. “It had such high intensity – it makes me excited to come back in the fall.” Unfortunately, Quewezance had to watch from the sidelines during the 4 day camp. “I suffered a knee injury during Senior Bowl tryouts,” he told Huskie Outsider.
Quewezance was a very sought after lineman on the recruiting trail, and he spoke with Huskie Outsider about his decision to become a Huskie. “When I made my visit to the UofS, I met all of the coaches and was given a tour of the facilities, which was my favourite part – I loved the facilities; I visitied a whole bunch of other schools, but this was definitely number one. The locker room is really something too – it’s the nicest that I’ve seen.”
While he didn’t get to participate in spring camp, other than meetings, Chase was a part of the Dogs’ Breakfast and was introduced along with the other new recruits. “That was unreal – one of the favourite parts of my life,” he said of the introduction he received. “It’s a pretty cool feeling to be up on that stage in front of 2000 people.”
Quewezance is spending the summer rehabbing his knee injury, following ACL surgery. “I have a lot of training to do over the summer and I’ll miss the 2013 season; I’ll work out all season and next year I’ll be ready.” Chase will enter the college of Arts and Science this fall.
