The accolades keep coming for #CFC100 CLASS 2016 top ranked quarterback Nathan Rourke.

On Wednesday night, the 6’2, 205 pound pivot from Oakville, Ontario was the recipient Back of the Year Award.  This honour was handed out at the Alabama Sports Writers Association Mr. Football Banquet.

This has been an exciting time in Rourke’s career.  He received an early Christmas present as he received his first NCAA Division 1 offer from Football Championship Subdivision (FBS) team, Alabama A & M Bulldogs.

Additionally, multiple NCAA schools have shown interest in Rourke including Chattanooga, East Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Southern Mississippi, Troy and UCLA.

Recently, Rourke enjoyed a successful 2015 campaign that saw him lead the Alabama’s Edgewood Wildcats to their sixth straight AISA ‘AA’ Championship and extend a winning streak of 71 games which is a state record.

The Oakville pivot amassed 3,768 passing yards, 59 passing touchdowns and three interceptions this past fall with the Wildcats. His completion rate was 75 percent and he rushed for 385 yards as well as 12 touchdowns.

With this win, the #CFC100 prospect is the second consecutive Wildcats player to receive the honour.
