“Explosive” Ontario recruit “feels at home” with Ravens

Kitchener receiver set to make return to home province to join OUA team’s 2016 class.

The Carleton Ravens continue to be busy this summer with recruitment.

Yesterday, the team announced the addition of Ti-Amo Richards to their football program.  The 5’11, 179 pound receiver from Kitchener, Ontario will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

With his commitment, Richards will be playing alongside his cousin and current Ravens defensive back Nathaniel Hamlin.

“Ti-Amo is a great addition to our program,” commented Ravens Head Coach Steve Sumarah of the newest Raven.  “He brings speed and explosiveness to our receiving core.”

“With his cousin Nathaniel Hamlin here it was a natural fit for him to be a part of the program.  We look forward to him being a successful student-athlete in our program.”

Last year, Richards moved to the Prairies to suit up for the Harry Ainlay Titans of the Metro Edmonton High School League (MEHSL) in the Alberta Schools Athletic Association (ASAA). The Titans ended the 2014 season ranked 23rd on the #CFC50 HIGH SCHOOL RANKINGS.

“I migrated out west last year because I wanted a higher level of talent to compete against,” explained Richards, who previously played for both Twin-Cities Predators of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) and St. Mary’s Eagles of the Waterloo County Secondary School Athletic Association (WCSSAA).

Ultimately, the receiver chose the Ravens for the opportunity to play with Hamlin.  Moreover, proximity and the strength of the football program and coaching staff played a significant part in his decision.

“I committed to Carleton because my cousin Nathaniel Hamlin plays there,” expressed Richards of his commitment.  “I feel like I’m at home and it was a chance to play in the province in which I started.”

“Also because of the coaching experience these guys know what they want and are still a young and humble team.”

With his decision complete, Richards can now focus on the upcoming season with the Titans and a key objective he would like to achieve with the team this fall.

“I’ll try my best to lead my team to a provincial championship,” added the receiver.
