Camrose, AB – The Camrose Kodiaks are very excited to announce that Callum Gau has committed to Augustana University in Sioux Falls, SD. (NCAA Div. 1).
Callum Gau is born and raised in Camrose, AB and has been a Kodiak for five years. Callum has also been the Captain of the Camrose Kodiaks for two years. Callum grew up cheering on the Camrose Kodiaks and watched the Kodiaks win the AJHL championship five times. The entire Kodiaks organization is proud to see Callum come up through the Camrose Minor Hockey Association, become a Kodiak, and secure an NCAA D1 scholarship.
Kodiaks Head Coach Clayton Jardine says, “Callum is a warrior who drags his teammates into the battle. He has earned this scholarship through his hard work and dedication. I could not be more proud of Callum as a hockey player and individual. He has represented the whole City of Camrose and I am sure there are many minor hockey players within Camrose now that want to grow up and to be just like Gau. The coaching staff in Sioux Falls is getting an outstanding student athlete.”
