Adam Konar of the Langley Rams

In his only season in the CJFL, linebacker Adam Konar played a major factor in the Langley Rams hosting their first ever Canadian Bowl.

During the 2012 season Konar led the Rams in defensive points collecting 16 tackles, five sacks, three knockdowns, four forced fumbles and had three interceptions including one for a touchdown.   He was part of a defence that allowed the fewest points in the BC Conference as they averaged 16.1 points a game.  Konar’s Rams went onto a semi-final win over the Westshore Rebels before upsetting the undefeated VI Raiders for the right to host the Canadian Bowl.   

In one of the most entertain national championships the Rams fell 23-21 to the Saskatoon Hilltops and Konar collected four tackles.

Just three years later Konar was taken 25th overall in the CFL Draft by the Edmonton Football Club in 2015.  In four seasons with Edmonton he collected 94 tackles, three interceptions and had a pair of sacks.  In May of 2019 he signed with the BC Lions and is now getting set for his second campaign in Vancouver in 2021.

Konar sits down to talk with Ryan Watters to reminisce his CFL Draft experience.

The defending BC Cullen Cup champs

The reigning BC Cullen Cup Champion Langley Rams became a member of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) for the first time in 1976 and were known as the Surrey Rams. They were a member until 1980, when a restructuring of the BC Conference sent the Rams down to the Tier II level.  However then in 1988 they were back as full members for good.

Over the years the Rams have posted an impressive record of 210-138-8. They are only the third team in Conference history to record 200 or more wins.

The Rams have had four name changes over their 37-year history. From 1988 to 1998 they were known as the Surrey Rams, and then from 1999 to 2005 they were known as the South Fraser Rams.  From that 1988 season up until 2005 they played out of Bear Creek Park in Surrey on natural grass. In 2006, they moved operations to White Rock and became known as the South Surrey Big Kahuna Rams until 2011, when they moved to Langley and McLeod Stadium to become the Langley Rams.

They have finished in first place in the Conference five times (1990, ’91, ’92, ’94 and 2019) and have made 31 appearances  in the CJFL post season,  winning nine Cullen Cups in the process (’1990, ’92, ’93, ’94, 2005, 2012. 2014, 2018, 2019).  Five of those Cullen Cup wins advanced the Rams to the Canadian Bowl but the franchise is still looking for their first national crown after losses in 1992, 2012, 2014, 2018 and 2019.

Along with successful teams the Rams have a rich tradition of developing incredible talent.  Twice players have been recognized as the CJFL Outstanding Offensive Player of the Year; Blair Atkinson (WR) in 2001 and Andrew Pocrnic (RB) in 2019.  On the other side of the ball one defender has been named the League’s Defensive Player of the Year when defensive end/linebacker Jermaine Haley received the honour in 1992.

Furthermore three players have been named CJFL Rookie of the Year; Josh Boden (2005), Cam Clark (2007) and Ethan Schulz (2014).  Countless Rams have been placed on the Conference All-Star teams each year.
