Huskies welcome CFC100 lineman to team

Huskies add an out-of-province commit to their 2018 class.

CFC100 Kieran Cummings, a defensive lineman from Garden City Collegiate Institute, has decommited from the Concordia Stingers and will be heading to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies instead.

“A big reason why I chose Sask was the coaching staff,” Cummings said. “They have so much experience at the next level and know what it takes to get there and play at the pro level. I can’t wait to be able to pick Coach Mizika’s and Coach Flory’s brains and learn as much as I can.”

He added that, “I feel they have the tools to help not only me but the whole team be successful. They are also just a great group of guys when I went on my visit and they made me feel a part of the team.”

Originally heading to Quebec, Cummings will now be staying closer to the people he loves. “It’s also close to home and now my family can watch games when I play in Manitoba and they can now drive out since it’s not too far away,” he said. “Also, the community is great there. Sask loves their football and so do I, so I feel it’s a great fit for me.”

Cummings is a hulking 6’1, 325lbs. Residing in Winnipeg, Manitoba, he started his career with the North Winnipeg Nomads in 2008 and played with the team until 2013. He then joined the Garden City Fighting Gophers (WHSFL) in 2014 and spent four years with the team. In 2015, Cummings was a part of the Greendell all-star team that played against the University of St. Thomas.

He has collected quite a few accolades during his career. In 2012, he won a peewee provincial championship. He won one at the bantam level the following year. From 2009 to 2012 he was the Nomads’ defensive lineman MVP. In 2013 he was the team’s defensive MVP. The next season he made the WHSFL honor role. While at the 2014 Blue and Gold game, he was named as the game’s defensive MVP. He was the Gophers’ lineman of the team every year between 2015 and 2017. He is a two-time defensive MVP with the Gophers in 2016 and 2017. Last season, the Gophers recognized him with a ‘Gopher Pride’ award.

“I am so happy I am getting the opportunity to play at Saskatchewan,” Cummings said. “I can’t wait to give the city my all. The recruiting process has been very long and had some tough times but I am happy to say I have found my new home for the next four to five years.”
