The 6’0, 240 pound defensive lineman from Halifax, Nova Scotia has transferred to the Carleton Ravens.

Ultimately, there were was one specific reason why Robinson opted for the Ravens.

“I chose Carleton because I believe in their plan to win a Vanier,” expressed the defensive standout.  “The city is second to none.”


For their part, the Ravens are thrilled to have landed Robinson due to his tenacious playmaking abilities, which will be a valuable asset on defence. Additionally, with his experience and talent, the Ravens feel that he will have immediate impact on the team upon his arrival.

“Shaun Robinson is a proven CIS performer and a force to be reckon with for any offense,” commented Ravens Head Coach Steve Sumarah.  “Having Shaun join our program is a plus in two ways; he is a proven winner and leader.”

“We look forward to 2017 when Shaun will be able to play after sitting the 2016 season.  This is a big piece to the Ravens program going forward.”

Robinson’s football ascension began at the age of nine, when he played for the Dartmouth Destroyers football organization.  He played four levels of football (atom, peewee, bantam and junior varsity) with the Destroyers.

Additionally, the Nova Scotia defensive star played for the Halifax Seahawks of the Nova Scotia Varsity Football League (NSVFL).  A veteran of the provincial football program as he’s played on Team Nova Scotia squads for four seasons – including representing the province at the 2013 Football Canada Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick.
