Henoc Muamba

CFL standout gets chance to leave his mark with NFL team.

An NFL team may have set their sights on a CFL standout.

Linebacker Henoc Muamba was recently invited to workout with the New England Patriots. The 6’0, 230 pound native of Zaire has enjoyed success with the Winnipeg Blues Bombers.  In 2013, Muamba has recognized for a phenomenal CFL campaign (106 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 interception) as he was selected as a league All-Star and was named the winner of the Lew Hayman trophy for being the East Division’s top Canadian player.

In 2011, Muamba was selected first overall in the CFL Draft by the Blue Bombers.  Prior to the Draft, the linebacker clocked a 4.72 in the 40-yard dash as well as 6.72 in the 3-cone drill at the CFL Combine.

Before his career in the CFL, Muamba suited up for AUS team, St. Francis Xavier X-Men. The linebacker was selected to the CIS First Team All-Canadian twice (2008, 2010) and CIS Second Team All-Canadian once (2009).

Muamba played high school football for Father Michael Goetz Gators of the Region of Peel Secondary Schools Athletic Association (ROPSSAA) in Mississauga, Ontario.
