During Josh Wiebe's first year with the Saskatoon Hilltops, the team made history.
The team claimed their fifth straight Canadian Bowl title, something no other team in the league has managed to do. They managed to defeat the Langley Rams 58 - 21 in the Canadian Bowl final.
Wiebe, originally from Rosetown, commented on his rookie year with the Hilltops, "It's definitely incredibly special to be apart of a such a prestigious team that continues to make history... I'm looking forward to hopefully continuing the streak and continuing to make history."
Wiebe played his first year in the Canadian Junior Football League with the Calgary Colts. He signed with the Hilltops at the start of the season this year. Wiebe has another three years maximum left in the league.
"It was definitely nicer being closer to home," Wiebe said. "I love being on the team, the coaches are second to none, really outstanding... All the power on that roster and learning from the guys was really special as well."
The Hilltops are only able to dress 40 players for away and playoff games, so Wiebe was only able to be on the bench for regular season home games, where they can have 65 players.
He said he was still able to get some field time despite it being his first year, "I got to dress for all of the home games, that weren't in the playoffs, and got playing time in those. Hopefully, I can continue to work into a bigger role in the coming years."
