The linebacking core for the Saskatoon Hilltops will welcome a Prince Albert product into their ranks this coming fall.

Scott Adamko has committed to the Hilltops program this coming fall after being an impact player in his high school football career for the Carlton Crusaders as both a running back and linebacker.

Adamko says he is looking forward to contributing once he arrives in the Bridge City.

“They’ve always been such a prestigious program. They have 23 national championships and all that. They’re always a good winning team, which is always fun.”

Scott won’t be the first member of his family to don the Hilltop uniform. His older brother Ryan and cousin Justin have both played for the team in the past.

Adamko says he is looking forward to following in the footsteps of his family..

“It’s awesome. Our family is going to be all over the place and it’ll be cool.”

The Hilltops are the defending Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) champions after they defeated the Westshore Rebels 17-10 in the Canadian Bowl last season.

Saskatoon has won 10 of the last 13 Canadian Bowl titles dating back to 2010.

Adamko says he is looking forward to contributing to the Hilltops push for a second consecutive championship this fall.

“It just gives you another reason to want to work harder to get on the field and just win. It’s just, you want to be back to back (champions), everyone wants that title. Just got to stay in the gym, keep up the hard work, and just never give up.”

The Hilltops open their 2024 campaign on August 11 when they take on the Edmonton Huskies.
