Jordan Grieve

His Salmon Arm fans and his team, the UBC Thunderbirds, know he’s a great football player, but now, it’s official – Canada-wide.

The Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) football all-stars for the 2011 season were named Thursday and, among them, was UBC Thunderbirds wide receiver Jordan Grieve. Salmon Arm’s Grieve was named a second-team All-Canadian.

Being a part of the all-star team means Grieve, currently a Commerce student at UBC, has been recognized as one of the best at his position in Canada.

He was earlier selected for the regional Canada West conference. With 768 yards receiving, and five touchdowns in regular season play, Grieve led the west with most yards in reception, and was fourth overall in the CIS. He added two more touchdowns and another 175 yards in two playoff games before the Thunderbirds lost to the Calgary Dinos on Nov. 11.

Canadian Interuniversity Sport is the national governing body of university sport in Canada. Fifty-two universities, 10,000 student-athletes and 550 coaches vie for 21 national championships in 12 different sports.
