Cameron began playing football when he was six years old. He has played both offensive and defensive positions, but has found the quarterback position, along with the occasional opportunity to be a wide receiver, are his favourite to play.

Cameron has played with the Cambridge Lions and the Kitchener Predators over the last seven years.

He was part of the Kitchener Post’s Team of the Week and was recognized by the City of Kitchener in 2015 for Athlete of the Year, along with the Predators for their winning sweep of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) peewee division for an undefeated season.

He has also competed in the Sports Specific Training QB Camp and seeks many mentors from the game to better himself.

Last year also brought Cameron the Offensive Player of the Game award in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) West game, where he had 104 rushing yards in the game.

For this year’s OPC, his goals are, “to come together as a team, make some new friends, to push myself to the max and to dominate our region.”

During the offseason the Predator participates in different football camps. He also does swimming and maintains a regular exercise schedule. This year he was doing CrossFit, as well as training to do his Bronze Star and Bronze Medallion.

Cameron is also on every school sport team and the Athletic Council.

On the field, the Predator has two idols, the first being Antonio Brown, wide receiver from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“He seems always very focused on the game and isn’t intimidated by bigger players than himself,” said Cameron. His other idol is Victor Cruz of the New York Giants because he celebrates breast cancer when he scores a touchdown to recognize his mom who passed away.

“I am drawn to people who are always doing things for others, and using their fame and fortune to support charities and causes,” commented the Predator.

Cameron loves to play football because he has a passion for the game.

“I get to have 30 brothers that I work hard with 4-5 days a week and we become really tight,” adds the Predator. “Sports help me focus and use my energy for positive and fun experiences.”
