The Regina Rams are the CIS football team that represents the University of Regina in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. The Rams nickname is used by the university's football team only; all other teams at the school are named Regina Cougars. The Rams joined the CIS in 1999 and have competed in the Canada West Conference since then.[1]

Club historyEdit

The Regina Rams were formed in 1954 when two junior football teams, the Bombers and the Dales, merged into one football club. The Rams participated in the Man-Sask Junior Football League until 1976, when they joined with junior teams from Alberta to form the Prairie Football Conference. The club would participate in the CJFL until 1998, winning ten Canadian Junior Football Championships along the way.[1]

In 1999, after competing for 45 years in junior football (Canadian Junior Football League), the Regina Rams became a member of the Canada West Conference of the Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union (CIAU), now Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). The University of Regina came to community partnership agreement with the CJFL team that made the transfer possible. Rather than change their name to Regina Cougars, the football team continued to use the moniker "Rams." In only their second year of playing in the CIAU, the Rams won the Canada West Conference championship and then the Atlantic Bowl. They then went on their way to the Vanier Cup where they lost 42–39 to Marcel Bellefeuille's Ottawa Gee-Gees. Since then the Rams have played in the Canada West Championship game three times.[1][2]

During their entire tenure in the CIS, Frank McCrystal has been the Regina Ram's head coach. He first took the reins of the team in 1984, making 2013 his 30th season as head coach of the Rams and his 15th in the CIS. In 2007, after leading his team to a 6–2 regular season record and an appearance in the Hardy Cup game, McCrystal was named the 2007 Canada West and CIS coach of the year. Building on the Rams' tradition and with an eye to the future, Coach McCrystal has been instrumental in implementing many program enhancements during his tenure.[3]
