The Langley Rams (formerly the South Surrey Rams and Big Kahuna Rams) are a Canadian Junior Football team based in Langley, British Columbia. The Rams play in the six-team B.C. Football Conference, which itself is part of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) and competes annually for the national title known as the Canadian Bowl.

The Rams were founded in 1948, where they were based in Surrey and known as the South Surrey Rams. In 2006, the team was renamed the Big Kahuna Rams after a sponsorship deal was signed with Big Kahuna Sport Company.[1] On December 5, 2010, the team was officially introduced as the Langley Rams as the team made the move to Langley to play in McLeod Park Stadium.[2]

The Langley Rams made it to the Canadian CJFL Championship against the Saskatoon Hilltops in 2012. The game on November 10 ended 23 Hilltops to 21 Rams giving the Hilltops their third straight Championship, winning 16 of 19 Championship games they have played.[3][4] “I’m pretty sure the odds are in my favour. The Saskatoon Hilltops are vying for their third straight Canadian Championship. They know how to win football games. I am proud to support them, and proud they are representing Saskatchewan. said Kevin Doherty, Saskatchewan’s Minister of Parks, Culture, and Sport of a friendly wager made between himself, and Bill Bennett, British Columbia’s Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. It will be Bennett who will don a Saskatoon Hilltop jersey for a day[5] [6] [7] [8]
