The defending Ontario Conference champion St. Clair Saints will once again be in the mix at the end of the season fighting for the Conference title in 2023.
Their defence will be bolstered by their secondary led by All-Canadian defensive back Billy Patterson who returns for this third season.
Last year the Saints were the stingiest defence in the Conference and one of the best in the entire CJFL allowing a measly average of 10 points a game. One of the reasons was the play of their ballhawk secondary led by Patterson who tallied 15 tackles, five assisted stops, had an interception and three knockdowns.
In his All-Canadian season in 2021 he collected four interceptions, including one for a touchdown and had 10 tackles.
He is hungry coming into this season and is a member of the CJFL Class of 2023! Watch his highlights from last season:
