Culture At A Crossroads

Episode 17

Orion Edwards is a multi-sport athlete. He has gone from football to bobsledding. 


He played football at Newmarket High School and the University of Guelph and was named to the East-West bowl. Edwards had multiple CFL opportunities, including a call from the Ottawa Red Blacks on the night of the 2017 Draft. Don't miss how his convictions urged him to pass on further football development, and how watching ‘Cool Runnings’ gave him a newfound interest in bobsled.  


After trying out for the development team in Calgary, Orion made the roster for the 2019-2020 season as a brakeman.
