  • Bucs quarterback works to bring team together

    Zachary Cormier – Lacombe Express – Thursday, July 7, 2016 The Central Alberta Buccaneers have been a force to be reckoned with in the Alberta FootballLeague this year. Although the Bucs have been a contender in the eight-team AFL for the past few years, they have never been able to overcome the challenge of the two perennially dominant teams in theleague, the Calgary Gators and the Fort McMurray Monarchs, partially due to the fact thattheir offense wasn’t able to put up the points needed to get the job done. That’s where new starting quarterback Brandon Leyh comes in. “I’m feeling pretty good. I feel like myself and the receivers have been on the same page prettymuch the whole year and the offense have been working really smoothly, which has been nice,”said Leyh, who originally hails from Vancouver. A former Atlantic University Sport All-Star, Leyh was recruited by Bucs Head Coach DevonHand earlier this year after graduating from Mount Allison University, where he spent fourseasons as the starting quarterback of the Mount Allison Mounties of the CIS. “I knew I was graduating this past April and New Brunswick is not so good at finding jobs. I’malso from B.C. as well, so I wanted to move a little bit closer to home,” said Leyh. “Devon Hand reached out to me and said he’d help me find a job if I decided to come here andcoming out of college your number one fear is finding a job, so that’s what led me to the Bucs.”...
