Coach Kyle Kelly was born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Here he played at all levels of minor football: Halifax Argos, Chargers, and NS Provincial U15 and U17 programs. He played for three years at Queen Elizabeth HS winning two provincial championships as a 2x All Star and Lineman of the year in his senior year. He then went on to play with Bishops University in Sherbrooke, Quebec. As a coach, Kelly has been involved with the Halifax Argos and the Halifax West high school.
Coach Kelly has been the foundational piece to the Tiger’s offensive line’s strength in recent years. Kelly walks the thin line between hard-nosed field sergeant and off-field friend and confidant. With a 2021 recruiting class chock-full of top tier offensive line prospects, we wouldn’t place our confidence in anyone else to turn a group of first-year hopefuls into a historic AFL offensive line era.
