Brought to you by Wiki: A Canisius grad won Lord Stanley's Cup in 2013. Stan Bowman, son of former Sabres coach Scotty Bowman, attended Canisius and went on to become the GM of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2009. In 2013, his Blackhawks won their 2nd Stanley Cup in Bowman's tenure.

2010 - Walked On to the team and redshirted as a scout team Wide Receiver

2011 - Moved to defensive back, played 10 games recording 9 tackles.

2012 - Played in all 12 games, starting in the final 5. Finished with 47 tackles, including 19 in his first two starts and 34 as a starter.

2013 Outlook - Derek Brim and Witney Sherry will battle for the Free Safety position. No matter who starts, I expect both Juniors will see plenty of playing time this year.

Nickname: Derek "On-The-Spot" Brim. So far he has always risen to the occasion, hopefully he continues to shine in the starting safety role.
