Gee-Gee dream realized

Ottawa kicker signs with hometown CIS team.

Connor Ayre will be playing CIS football in his own backyard.

The 6’3, 200 pound kicker/punter has signed with the Ottawa Gee-Gees for the 2014 OUA season.

Overall, there were three main factors as to why he chose the Gee-Gees.

“I met their kicking coach Dave Miller Johnson and extremely liked the way he teaches,” explained Ayre of his factors.  “I really love the campus of the University of Ottawa and how close it is to my home.”

“Finally, Ottawa University has a very good football program and I’ve always wanted to be a Gee-Gee.”

Among the teams Ayre has suited up for include the Ottawa Myers Riders of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), Nepean Redskins of the National Capital Amateur Football (NCAFA) and Mother Teresa Titans of the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA).

Last season with the Myers Riders, the Ottawa native broke four OVFL records – most kickoffs in a season (79), most kickoff yards in a season (3903 yards), most conversions in a season (65) and highest percentage field goal completion rate (86 percent).
