Victoria, BC, Canada – May 4, 2017 – It’s Coach Cardilicchia’s first season as Head Coach of the Westshore Rebels and he is starting off the season this weekend with a Spring Camp to remember. With an already experienced coaching staff Cardillichia has also invited CFL Player Guest Coaches including:

  • Dexter Janke, Calgary Stampeders Linebacker
  • Aaron Crawford, Hamilton Tigercats Long Snapper (Rebels Alumni)
  • Quinn Van Gylswyk, Saskatchewan RoughRiders Kicker (Rebels Alumni)
  • Greg Morris, Saskatchewan RoughRiders Running Back (Rebels Alumni)

Greg Morris is also a Rebels Alumni from 2011-2012 where he had back to back 1,000-yard rushing seasons. He also set the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) single game rushing mark in an outstanding performance in which he rushed for 405 yards.

“I am looking forward to being back on Vancouver Island and helping out a team that is close to my heart. I have a lot of memories playing in Victoria and look forward to providing guidance and support at the Rebels Spring Camp”, states Greg Morris.

Coach Cardillichia over the past few months has been traveling across Canada in search of talented football players to join his 2016 Cullen Cup champion team. Talented prospects are coming from as far away as Toronto. In addition, you will see many of the Rebels players returning to the Westhills field for Spring Camp.

“We are coming off of a winning season and are expected to do well. I am really excited about some of our new prospects. We have had players move up to play in the CIS and there are big shoes to fill. I have spent a lot of time reviewing player footage, and visiting Cities across Canada, to find the right fit for our team. I am excited to see who brings their A game. You never know who is going to surprise you,” said Coach Cardillichia.

The Westshore Rebels Spring Camp is being held at Westhills Stadium (1089 Langford Parkway) from May 5-7th and is open to the public if they want to come and watch the action.
