Big city entrance (VIDEO)

Caledonia offensive standout recently joins OUA team’s 2014 class.

From the moment Emmett Putt stepped onto the University of Toronto campus, he knew that was where he was destined to begin the next phase of his academic and gridiron life.

Consequently, the 5’10, 160 pound wide receiver/running back from Caledonia, Ontario committed to the Varsity Blues for the 2014 OUA season.

“The reason I chose to attend the University of Toronto was the feeling I got when I first got on campus and to see the field,” commented Putt.  “I am a small town boy who played my football in typical football places but when I got to Toronto’s field and saw it right downtown, I was instantly attached to the school.”

“It’s something new to be playing down town Toronto from playing in a small town and moving from a small town to a big city also shares deep interest in me because again it is something new I can’t wait to experience.  I also committed because of academic reasons. Toronto offered me the best program for what I want to do and I couldn’t pass up that opportunity.”

Emmett Putt commitment

Putt comes to the Varsity Blues after playing for the Assumption Lions of the Brant County Secondary Schools Athletic Association (BCSSAA).  During his time there, the team won the BCSSAA Championship four consecutive times, won the Central Western Ontario Secondary School Association (CWOSSA) four straight times and also were OFSAA Bowl Festival Champions in 2013.

In addition to the Lions, Putt suited up for the Hamilton Hurricanes of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

With the focus now towards his future, Putt is looking forward to commencing the next chapter of his career.

“Football is important to me and I plan to play for as long as I can but I do have a future I have to look out for after and Toronto gave me the best way to start my future,” said Putt.  “I would also like to say I am so excited to be a part of this program and can’t wait to hit the field with the team and see where I fit in.”

“It’s going to be a great experience moving from high school and the OFC to the CIS. I can’t wait to compete with the best players from around Canada maybe including the States in the OUA.  This is a dream come true.”
