No, not the classic country tune by Faron Young, we're talking about Jordan Walls...the new starting quarterback of the Saskatoon Hilltops. The Tommy Douglas grad has mostly watched from the sidelines as Jared Andreychuk piloted the Toppers to three straight Canadian Bowls. With Andreychuk graduating, it's the 21-year-old Walls' turn to lead following the team's Spring Camp this past weekend.
"It's something I've worked pretty hard for in the last couple of years to get to," said the fourth-year Hilltop. "To finally have an opportunity, I'm really excited about it."
In limited playing time over the last three P-F-C seasons, Walls completed 42 of 59 passes for 389 yards with one touchdown pass and five interceptions. Toppers' main training camp starts July 28 with the regular-season opening on the road in Regina on August 12.
