My name is Noah Pelletier. I am a Grade 12 student at Balfour Collegiate. Over the past four years of high school, I have been involved in various activities within the school such as football, basketball, badminton, ultimate Frisbee, handball and more.
Football has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember. I played Regina Minor Football up until my Grade 9 year when I started playing quarterback for the Balfour Bears. I also played for U16 Team Saskatchewan in 2017 and for the U18 Team Saskatchewan in 2018 and 2019 when we became back-to-back gold medal champions. I had the opportunity to play for Team Canada in 2018 and in 2020, which took me to Texas to play in the AT&T Stadium. This experience was a highlight in my football career. Being part of these elite teams has been an honour, and I will treasure these moments for the rest of my life.
I have received many academic and athletic awards while attending Balfour Collegiate, including honour roll, meritorious awards, Rookie of the Year, Offensive MVP, two-time team MVP, Senior Athlete of the Year and RHSAA Gerry Thompson Football Award.
As my high school football career comes to an end, I have been fortunate enough to be approached by the Regina Rams to join the team as a quarterback with their organization. While playing football with the Regina Rams, I will be attending the University of Regina where I plan to obtain a degree.
I would like to thank my family members who have supported me throughout the years and as well, I would like to thank all of my teachers and coaches for all of their hard work and dedication throughout my high school years. Without them, I wouldn’t be the person or athlete I am today. I would also like to thank the Twelfth Year organizers for this opportunity to showcase my talents and senior year.
