Student Spotlight: Adam Sinagra is crushing it on the field

UofC Dinos Adam Sinagra and Jimmy Underdahl celebrate their win over St. Francis X-Men in Mitchell Bowl action at McMahon Stadium in Calgary on Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016. The Dinos beat the X-Men 50-24.


Dinos starting quarterback and economics undergrad student Adam Sinagra has been making headlines.

We're four games deep into the U Sport football season, and the Dinos have had nothing but wins, largely thanks to Sinagra.

Case in point: On September 14, in the Dinos' third game of the season—and the first against the Saskatchewan Huskies—Sinagra threw an incredible 569 passing yards with three touchdowns. This not only won the game and secured Sinagra's place as Canada West offensive player of the week, it also nearly broke the record for passing yards in a single game. Sinagra now holds second all-time for passing yards in a single game.

(Fun fact: The record was set by another Dino in a game against the Huskies—in October 1983, former Calgary QB Greg Vavra threw 627 yards against Saskatchewan.)

Sinagra is leading the country in passing yards per game (408.0), is the front-runner for the HEC Crighton Trophy, and has been named one to watch by CFL scouts.

The Dinos return home tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 29, to face the Saskatchewan Huskies — kickoff time is set for 1 pm, live on, and we'll be watching.
