Bo Levi Mitchell

Coach

Bo Levi was raised in a football town, Katy Texas.  He started playing QB for the Baltimore Ravens in Katy youth football and never looked back.   After, now Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton left Katy High School, Bo Levi took over- losing only 1 game his entire highschool career.  He lead Katy High School to an undefeated 16-0 5A Texas State Championship in 2007, and received over 20+ full ride scholarships.

In 2008 Bo Levi chose to follow highly touted NFL & NCAA coach June Jones to start as a true freshman at Southern Methodist University and was voted captain that freshman year.  After transferring to Eastern Washington University in 2010, Bo Levi was voted captain both his junior year (where he lead the Eagles to a comeback on a national stage, winning the FCS D1AA National Championship) and his senior year.  In 2011 he was voted the Walter Payton Player of The Year, Offensive Player of the Year and unanimous All Star.

After going undrafted in the 2012 NFL draft, Bo signed with the CFL Calgary Stampeders, where he threw a TD in the 2012 Grey Cup as a rookie QB.  He carried this momentum into a starting position in 2014 where he started his career 7-0 and still holds the highest winning percentage in CFL history.

Bo Levi has been voted captain all 3 years as a starter, won the Grey Cup and Grey Cup MVP in 2014, was the Most Outstanding Player runner up in 2015 and topped the CFL league the following year with 2016’s Most Outstanding Player.

Alex Singleton- ‘Coach Loonie’

Singleton is playing in his 2nd season with the Calgary Stampeders. He currently leads the team in tackles and is 2nd in the entire CFL. The Canadian linebacker has had a stellar year so far in his young professional career, breaking the all-time record in tackles for a Canadian. Although he is best known for his hard-hitting style and knack to be around the ball; he may also be recognized for rocking the best mullet in the history of the CFL. The 23 year old Linebacker spent his college career at Montana State, eventually making his way onto a few NFL teams including the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, and Minnesota Vikings. Singleton serves as an active supporter of the Special Olympics.

Jamar earned his first Grey Cup win with the 2014 Calgary Stampeders. His football acuity has made Wall one of the biggest threats on the entire field. Wall was drafted in the sixth round by the Dallas Cowboys and also spent time with the Houston Texans, and Philadelphia Eagles. Wall is currently a supporter of the Alberta Children’s Hospital youth program.
