Joining the Heat is 6'1" centre-back Sam Bastow hailing from Coquitlam, B.C., and the soon to be graduate of Dr. Charles Best Secondary comes to the Heat bringing both skill and an impressive resume to boot. Bastow captured the 2018 club national championship with his Coquitlam Metro Ford club team, and in 2016 his CMF squad won a provincial title.
The defender also has a long list of accomplishments with his Charles Best Blue Devil's high school team, highlighted with a provincial title in 2017.
Bastow on his commitment:
"I chose UBCO because it's one of Canada's top universities with tons of opportunities in each faculty, and playing soccer for the university I'm attending has always been a dream of mine. We have lots of young talent on the team and I'm excited to see what coach Dante has planned for us."
Heat coach Dante Zanatta on Sam Bastow:
"Sam has the physical size to compete in U SPORTS as a defender right off the bat and processes the ability to play out of the back which will fit into how we like to play, each time that I have watched in over the past two years he continues to get better and we believe that he can be an impactful U SPORTS player over his four or five years at UBCO."
