Offensive lineman Vikram Varpaul has committed to the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds football team.
The six-foot-five, 260-pound Surrey native will join the team for the 2015 CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sports) season. Varpaul played high school football with the Holy Cross Crusaders.
“He not only showed talent on the field but off it as well,” said Crusaders head coach Conrad Deugau. “He was leader on the team and the measuring stick for our underclassmen. He was soft spoken and led by example.”
