Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (Central): Sooner Desir looking to be a dominant DE

Sheldon Desir started his football career four years ago and it has inspired several aspects of his life since then.

“If you want to go anywhere in life with football you have to fight for it,” said Sheldon.

Throughout his career, Sheldon has played in the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA) with the Mother Teresa Titans, as well as in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA) with the Bel-Air Norsemen.

Sheldon can also be seen wearing an Ottawa Sooners jersey in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

He will also be on the field for the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge, where his goal is to become a dominant defensive end and prove himself to scouts.

During the offseason, he trained with Pat Woodcock and Donnie Ruiz at the Elite Performance Academy, as well as worked out on his own to become a powerful football player.

On the field, the Sooner’s role models are linebackers Derrick Brookes and Kwon Alexander because they were both criticized for their size in their position.

“Derrick Brookes proved himself and he made the Hall of Fame,” said Sheldon. “Today Kwon Alexander is only in his second year in his NFL career and he made it as a Pro Bowl alternate.”

The Sooner loves football more than anything in his life.

“I think it’s the ultimate team sport because everything you do affects the members for offence and defence,” commented Sheldon.
