Concordia CFC100 commit sees future with Stingers

Concordia adds an out-of-province commit to their 2018 class.

CFC100 Kieran Cummings, a defensive lineman from Garden City Collegiate, is set to leave the Prairies behind and immerse himself in the metropolitan life of Montreal, Quebec, after signing with the Concordia Stingers.

“I chose Concordia because I felt it will give me the most opportunities for my future, education, football and life,” he said. “Montreal is an amazing city and the theatre program is quite prestigious and I feel it will be a great fit for me.”

It didn’t take long for Cummings to feel like he belonged in Montreal. “The coaches are a great group and are like a family. I have a great connection with Coach Pat that goes back to early in my recruiting process,” he said. “My first year of U18 (football), we talked for quite awhile about not just football and I felt that I would be welcomed fully into the Concordia family.”

The hulking 6’1, 325lbs product of Winnipeg, Manitoba, is interested in the acting in theatre and performance creation program. He said he would like to either pursue a career in acting or obtain an education degree and teach drama.

From 2008 to 2013, Cummings was a member of the North Winnipeg Nomads. In 2014 he joined the Garden City Fighting Gophers (WHSFL). He played on the Greendell all-star team in 2015. He is a two-time provincial champion with the Nomads in 2012 (peewee) and 2013 (bantam).

Cummings is a four-time defensive lineman MVP. In 2013 he was the Nomads defensive MVP. The following year he made the WHSFL honour roll. That year he was also the Blue and Gold game defensive MVP. From 2015 to 2017 he was the Gophers’ lineman of the year. He is a two-time Gophers’ defensive MVP in 2016 and 2017. Last season he also won the Gopher pride award.

“I would like to thank all the schools who showed interest in me throughout this process,” Cummings said. “I believe I have forged relationships that will last past my commitment to Concordia. At the end of the day I could only chose one school, but I feel connected to many coaches from programs who reached out to me and I’m thankful to them all.”
