Carrying success

One of the most electrifying and exciting players to watch on the varsity Toronto Jr. Argos of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) is Treylon Charles.

The 5’11, 200 lbs running back who also suits up for the Father Henry Carr Crusaders of the Toronto District College Athletic Association (TDCAA) has been exploding offensively this season.

With one just game left, Treyion has close to racking up 1000 rushing yards, over 200 yards on 12 receptions, and has scored 16 touchdowns.

“It’s like watching a man play against boys,” said Argos Coach Carlo Onorati, “He is unlike any other player I’ve seen in a long time.”

“Treyion is just an athlete.  He has played running back, wide receiver, defensive back, even quarterback for us. You can literally put him anywhere on the field.”

Last year, Treyion helped the Jr Argos achieve a 7-1 overall record, only to lose a heartbreaker in Round 1 of the playoffs against the Peterborough Wolverines.

However, Treyion is planning for a different outcome this time around.

“This season has gone much better than I expected it too,” said Charles, “I’m leading in rushing touchdowns throughout the whole league so I plan to carry that into the playoffs.”

Treyion was the 2014 recipient of the Warren Hudson Award. This is a special award given by the Argos organization to a player that exhibits the values that ex-CFLer, and Argos volunteer coach, Warren Hudson bestowed on his players – dedication, perseverance, and heart.

“When you give Treyion the ball, you can see that he is going to do everything he can to get it into the end zone for his team,” added Onorati.
