Erik Krebs graduated from Bishops University in 2015 and has been coaching ever
since. Coaching has led him to discover a new passion for the game. He has been coaching
football, as well as various other sports for the past 6 years. This passion has also led him to
pursue a career in teaching, and he now teaches music within the Halton District School Board.
Fostering growth within his students and players is a love of his and always has been.
He started playing football in high school where he was a captain of his senior team as
well as a WCSSAA first team Allstar for 2 years. Following high school, he pursued football at

2013, and played in the East West Bowl in London, On. He was nominated by his teammates
to act as a captain of the football program for 2014/2015.
Upon graduation, he started coaching football. He started off as a OL coach but quickly

the Cambridge JV lions and maintained that job for the 2017-2019 seasons. He effectively
