Alberta running back commits to Stingers

The Concordia football program is pleased to announce Myles Browne, a top running back and member of Canada’s U18 Team, has signed a CIS Letter of Intent committing to the Stingers.

“We are thrilled that Myles is going to be part of our family,” said Patrick Donovan, Concordia’s assistant head coach. “He’s going to make a big difference to our program.”

Browne will travel to Arlington, Texas with Team Canada at the end of the month. He will participate in the 2015 International Bowl Series between Canada and the U.S. There will be a week of practices and activities that wrap up with a game versus the Americans on Jan. 30.

“It’s going to be an exceptional experience for him,” Donovan said. “He’s one of the best all-round backs in the country. He has great speed, great awareness, great vision, great hands.”

Browne, a Calgary resident who checks in at five foot 11, 185 pounds, played for the Notre Dame Pride, the top high school program in Canada. The Pride has won three consecutive Alberta Tier 1 senior football titles.

In his senior year, Browne rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 11 games.

In the 2014 championship game, a 44-21 victory over Sherwood Park’s Bev Facey Falcons, he carried the ball eight times for 101 yards.

Browne was named to the 2014 Calgary high school all-star team.

The star running back was highly recruited, but in the end Concordia was the best fit.

“I’m originally from Montreal,” Browne said. “I have a lot of respect for the city and I look forward to being close to family. But what impressed me was talking to Coach (Patrick) Donovan and seeing the team on my visit. Concordia really stresses family and that was important to me when making my decision.”

Browne will join the Stingers for training camp in August.
