Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (Central): WR Coleman hoping to attract USports/NCAA attention

Nathan Coleman has been on the gridiron for eight years now.

The receiver played spring football for six years with the Smith Falls Minor Football Association’s (SMFA) Renegades and wit the Brockville Buccaneers in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA).

After those six years, he felt like he could play at a more competitive level, so Nathan tried out for the Ontario Varsity Football League’s (OVFL) junior varsity Myers Riders.

He made the team on first string, and they ended up winning the championship in his first season.

This past season with the Riders, he accumulated two touchdowns and a total of 162 yards.

Moreover, Nathan also plays for his high school team, the Smith Falls District Collegiate Institute (SFDCI) Redhawks.

Also, the Myer is participating in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge, where his goals are to get scouted by a CIS or NCAA team and play football at a higher level.

During the offseason, the Rider trains with Elite Performance Academy to help him get faster, jump higher and be stronger.

On the field, his idol is Sterling Shepherd because he is a small guy making big plays for his team.

“I love to play football because it keeps me in shape,” said Nathan. “I enjoy coming away with spectacular catches and practicing one-handed catches like Odell Beckham.”

The receiver also likes how you need to work as a team to win games.

“I like the social aspect of the game as well as making new friends and meeting new coaches,” added Nathan.
