Please see attached “Players to Watch” spotlight on a select few of this year’s new recruits and guest coaches.


#49 - Carter Stusek – DL (End), 6’0” 210lbs, Campbell Colligate, Regina SK 
Carter hasn’t been a Defensive Lineman all that long, but by watching him play you’d think he has spent most of his career there. In fact, he has spent most of his time on the offensive side of the ball as a slot receiver. Carter’s dedication to the weight room has eased the transition to a new position. He has been a member of both U16 and U18 Team Sask. What has impressed the coaches the most is his consistency, ability to set the edge in the run game and effort in backside pursuit.

#52 - Tajay Morgan – DL (End), 6’0” 190lbs, Winston Knoll Collegiate, Regina SK  
Taj is an explosive athlete with a natural ability to rush the passer. He has proven to be handful for our veteran offensive lineman. He may have flown under the radar for much of his high school career but we expect big things from this young man in the coming years. The ceiling is high for this player. Expect Taj to make an immediate impact on special teams. 

#46 - Tristan Moreau – DL (Inside), 6’2”, 310lbs, St Mary High School, Prince Albert SK
Tristan is your prototypical zero technique, demanding a double team in most situations. With his size, power and quickness off the football Tristan should cause opposing teams’ players and coaches many sleepless nights. He has participated for the U18 Team Sask. Tristan’s size and motor should bolster a typically undersized Thunder defensive line.   

#38 - Davin Williamson – LB, 5’9”, 220lbs, Winston Knoll Wolverines, Regina SK
Davin played for the Winston Knoll Wolverines. Is one of the top Linebackers in the province this year. Has relentless work ethic as well as pursuit and drive. Has played Team Sask U18 for the past two years. Won Defensive player of the game last year in the Bronze Medal game. Is a "THUMPER" when it comes to the linebacker position.

#41 - Tanner Pederson – LB, 6’1”, 217, Prince Albert Carlton Crusaders, Prince Albert SK
Tanner Pederson - Tanner played for Prince Albert's Carlton Crusaders. In 2015 won Special Teams player of the year. Has played Team Sask U18 and has been a contributor. Is a true "SURGEON" at the position dissecting and diagnosing what is happening in front of him.

#25 - Tyson Haubrich - DB, 5’11, 160lbs, Thom Collegiate, Regina SK
Tyson is an exceptional athlete coming to the Thunder after a very successful career with the Thom Trojans. In 2015 Tyson won the Schwann Conference Special Teams Player of the Year and was also a Defensive Back All-Star.  Tyson was also awarded with Thom’s Chuck Toth Outstanding Defensive Player and the Krentz Leadership and Commitment award. We are excited about having Tyson join our defensive backfield where he will be able to use his athleticism and physicality to compete at corner and halfback. 

Red - Brock Sich – QB, 6’1, 196lbs, Miller Marauders, Regina, SK
Brock Sich comes to the Regina Thunder after a successful high school career at Miller Comprehensive High School. Brock has all the intangibles to be a successful quarterback, and is ready to take the next step with the Regina Thunder. The Regina Thunder have a reputation of grooming successful quarterbacks, and we could not be happier to have him with us. 

Red - Chris Campbell – QB, 6’1, 180lbs, Centennial Collegiate, Saskatoon, SK
We are really excited to have Chris joining the Regina Thunder for the upcoming season.  Chris has a tremendous skill set and has a high football IQ.  The addition of Chris bolsters our depth chart.  His leadership and consistency are admirable traits that his teammates will look up to and respect.

#24 - Joel Senko- RB, 5’10, 190lbs, St.Mary's Marauders, Prince Albert, SK 
Josh has only been playing football for three years.  Rushed for 620 yards and 4 td's as the starting RB for St.Mary's.  Recently was a part of the South Sask Selects team that played in Texas in February. Josh is 5'10 and 190 pounds and looks forward to competing for carries in the back field.

#38 - Bryson Simpson- RB, 5’10”, 190lbs, Carleton Crusaders, Prince Albert, SK 
Bryson has been playing football since he was 9 years old.  Their teams competed in Saskatoon minor football.  He has played a variety of positions in his career.  Most recently playing running back at carlton.  He had 700 rushing in the Saskatoon high school league.  He was also a member of the South Sask Selects team that participated in Texas in February. 

#17 - Avery Pierce – Rec, 5’9”, 172lbs, Campbell Collegiate, Regina, SK
Avery Pierce joins the Thunder from Campbell Collegiate Tartans football program. Avery was a standout running back and kick returner with the Tartans. He also played receiver with the Team Saskatchewan U18 team last summer, a position he will continue to play as a member of the Thunder. Avery is fast and dynamic as a ball carrier. As his route running continues to improve the elusive playmaker will look to push veterans for game reps in the fall.
