Many junior football players are students and/or have part time jobs, some need a little extra help meeting the financial requirements set by the Rams, Canadian Junior Football League and BC Football Conference.

The “Adopt A Ram” program gives you a chance to help out, it also provides incentive to our players so they can reach out to their employers, family and friends about the program.

Langley Rams well represented at CFL Camps

Langley Rams well represented at upcoming CFL Camps

While many people head for the lake this long weekend several members of the Langley Rams family will be busy preparing for CFL Camps, which get under way across the Nation next week.BCLions-Logo-f84c4dabbab50d1e15969c589c793a02Locally the BC Lions will have a pair of Langley Rams in camp next week when the CFL Club runs their 2016 Mini-Camp and regular season Training Camp at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops.

Nathan Lund received an official invite to the BC Lions Mini-Camp this week but the BC Junior Football star is no stranger to the CFL club’s Mini-Camp, practice field or clubhouse. Lund spent parts of the 2014 and 2015 seasons practicing and training with the CFL Club and will be attending his third consecutive BC Lions Mini-Camp on May 26,27,28. Prospects and first year players will run through the three lund_nathan_72_200day camp hoping to earn an invite to the CFL Club’s Training Camp, which begins Sunday May 29th. In the past BC Lions Head Coach and General Manager Wally Buono has made it clear that Junior players attending Mini-Camp are not there as tourists and they are expected to challenge for a training camp spot, as Rams Jordan Linnen did in 2011 and Anthony Daley in 2015. Lund, the BC High School All Star out of Coquitlam’s Centennial Centaurs program, is heading into his fourth season of Junior Football with the Langley Rams and was the Offensive MVP of the 2014 Cullen Cup BC Championship game after scoring the game winning touchdown late in the Rams 23-19 victory over the Okanagan Sun. Lund is one of the most explosive runners in Junior Football, former Rams Head Coach Tyler McLaren, who is now the BC Lions Junior Football Liaison, called the 5’11” 185lb Lund “a down hill runner,who sees the field well, and has the ability to explode in the open field.” In 2015 Lund carried the ball 74 times for 614 yards, an average of 8.4 yards per carry, and scored five touchdowns for the Rams.

Rams Alumnus Jaskaran Dhillon is also headed for Kamloops, where he will suit up on the offensive line at the BC Lions Training Camp on Sunday. Jas was selected out of UBC in the 3rd round (21st overall) in the 2014 CFL Draft jas_dhillonby the Toronto Argonauts and was signed by the Lions as a free agent last October as part of the Lions’ practice roster expansion period, he spent the final five weeks of the 2015 regular season on the Lions’ practice roster and signed a new contract with the CFL club in December.

Dhillon played for the Rams from 2007 to 2009 in South Surrey and spent the 2010 season at the University of Regina, he returned to the Rams in 2011, their first season in Langley, and then moved on to attend the University of British Columbia in 2012. Jas appeared in eight games as a defensive lineman during his first season with Shawn Olson’s Thunderbirds and recorded a total of 18 tackles, 10 of them solo. In 2013 Jas made the move to the offensive side of the ball and lined up at guard on a group that allowed just seven sacks, while averaging 219 yards per game rushing on the year. Jas was a key member of the Thunderbirds offensive line in 2013 and was rewarded by being honoured as a CIS First Team All Canadian.

Whyte was voted the Eskimos 2015 Most Outstanding Canadian Nominee and was re-signed by the CFL club in January.

Whyte is a Graduate of South Surrey’s Semiahmoo Secondary and spent the 2004 season with the Rams prior to attending and playing football for two years at Santa Monica College in California, Whyte returned to the Rams program in 2007 and played two seasons before he was signed out of Junior by the BC Lions in 2009. Whyte was with the Lions for two seasons and made a respectable 27 of his 35 field goal attempts, but he couldn’t un-seat another Rams Alumnus, future CFL Hall of Famer Paul McCallum, as the Lions kicker. Whyte signed with Montreal in 2011 and went on to play four seasons with the Alouettes, during that time he was an Eastern Conference All Star twice (2011, 2013) and was the recipient of the Lew Hayman Trophy as the Eastern Conference Most Outstanding Canadian in 2011, the same season that he set the Alouettes record of 24 consecutive field goals made.

adam-konar-161521-circAdam Konar heads into his second training camp with Edmonton Eskimos after being selected 25th overall out of the University of Calgary in the 2015 CFL Draft. Konar made the Eskimos active roster as a rookie and played in five regular season games. Adam was a BC High School Star for the Vancouver College Fighting Irish and then attended the University of British Columbia, where he was the Thunderbirds rookie of the Year in 2011. He opted not to return to the Thunderbirds in 2012 and instead joined the Langley Rams program where he was the 2012 BCFC Most Outstanding Defensive Player, BCFC All Star, CJFL All Canadian and helped the Rams win the 2012 Cullen Cup Championship. Adam returned to the CIS in 2013 with the Calgary Dinos but a training camp injury put an early end to his season, he returned to the Dinos in 2014 and was honoured as a CIS First Team All Canadian. Adam is the son of Legendary BC Lions player Kevin Konar.
