Manitoba rancher Jesse Nykoliation doubles as a Winnipeg Blue Bombers fan.

His fandom for the Bombers was taken to a new level when he decided to name a bull after former blue and gold quarterback Chris Streveler.

Nykoliation wrote: us farmers in Southwest Manitoba are proud of you! Named the highest priced charolais bull after you! You will see the Strevs genetics in Canada, USA and Australia. When people ask how we got the the name we say, ‘he was the best QB duo with [Zach] Collaros in CFL history.’ 

Streveler liked it.

“I’ve been a Bomber fan my entire life and this is by far the best bull we’ve ever raised,” Nykoliation told 680 CJOB radio in Winnipeg.

“I think Streveler is the best quarterback I’ve seen in some time too, eh? It’s only fitting to honour them after winning the Cup after 29 years.”

Streveler ran like a bull for the Bombers as the team captured their first CFL championship since 1990.
