Carleton bound (VIDEO)

Brampton defensive standout joins OUA team’s 2014 class.

Kene Onyeka’s academic goals have led him to the Carleton Ravens.

This week, the 6’3, 235 pound linebacker/defensive back committed to the OUA team for the 2014 OUA season.

“Although I am looking forward to becoming a Carleton Raven in the fall, the main aspect of Carleton that I found most attractive was the quality of the Engineering program,” explains Onyeka of his decision.  “I left the engineering building and without a doubt in my mound I knew this was where I wanted to be.”

“A great thing about Carleton’s football team is how new it is.  The players on the team are really young and easier to relate to.  I am looking forward to growing as a student and a football player at Carleton this fall.”

Oneyka, who was born in Nigeria, played for the St. Roch Ravens of the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA). Currently, he is suiting up for the Brampton Bulldogs of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

As for the Ravens, the team is thrilled to welcome this new addition to the fold.

“Kene is a big athlete who we were very impressed by his athleticism and his ability to move around the field,” commented Ravens Head Coach Steve Sumarah.  “He has the ability to come in and help on special teams and play either defensive end or inside linebacker.”

“A good student studying engineering was also very important to our program as we continue to build a solid group of student athletes.”
