Charles-Brown makes cross-country trek to join Ravens

Ravens welcome a CJFLer to their team.

Shaiheem Charles-Brown, a defensive lineman from the Langley Rams (CJFL), is no stranger to moving, so it shouldn’t be much of a problem when he moves cross country again to join the Carleton University Ravens.

According to the Langley Times, at the age of 14, Charles-Brown decided to remain in Montreal, Quebec, while his family returned to Grenada, his mother’s home country. After two years, his family returned, bringing him to west coast. Prior to his grade 12 year, his family returned to Grenada, but Charles-Brown was determined to make it in Canada.

Now, he has a chance to make a name for himself with the Ravens. “I saw a great opportunity there to develop as a player, physically and mentally,” he said. “The coaching staff is great.”

With the Ravens on the rise, the team has multiple resources at its disposal. Charles-Brown said that the effort to improve the facilities is what appealed to him.

In his career, the 6’4, 210lbs athlete has played with the Langley Saints (BC Secondary School Athletic Association), the Rick Hansen Hurricanes (BCSSAA) and the Langley Stampeders (North Langley Football Association). He spent three seasons with the Langley Rams. In 2014, he won a BCFC championship.

In 2016, he was named a CJFL All-Canadian and BCFC all-star. He had 18 tackles with nine assisted, eight sacks, two blocked kicks, four knockdowns and a forced fumble. He is currently residing in Burnaby, BC.
