Burlington recruit hopes future impact translates into Vanier Cup for Mounties (VIDEO)

Burlington quarterback joins AUS team’s 2016 class.

Graham Kelly will spend the next three years of his gridiron and academic life in New Brunswick.

Recently, the 6’7, 250 pound quarterback from Burlington, Ontario has signed with Mount Allison Mounties.  Kelly will join the team for the 2016 AUS season.

Ultimately, the combination of academics and football made the Mounties the perfect choice for Kelly.

“I had chosen to attend Mount Allison University because of the incredible opportunity I have for the remaining three years of my eligibility,” elaborated Kelly.  “Their Business program had caught my interest and I’ve taken a special interest for business my whole life.”

“Another reason I have chosen to attend Mount Allison is he opportunity that Coach [Gaetan] Richard and Coach [Scott] Brady have given me with their football program; an opportunity to be their starting quarterback for my three years of remaining eligibility and make an impact for their school and win the Vanier Cup!”

The pivot has suited up for the Ottawa Sooners of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).  In 2015, Kelly completed 24 passes in 39 attempts for 414 passing yards (completion rate of 62 percent), four rushing yards on two carries, five touchdowns, two rushing majors and two interceptions.

“I have never been more motivated to be a part of a football family like Mount Allison,” expressed Kelly.  “I have come a long way with football and I know, attending MTA will truly make a huge impact on my football career as a player and a person and I am looking to do the same for the school for these next three years!”
