Future visions

North Bay center becomes newest recruit to join OUA team’s 2014 class.

Envisioning the future was enough for an Ontario standout to commit to his future CIS home.

Colin Jerome recently committed to the Guelph Gryphons for the 2014 OUA season.  The 6’0, 275 pound center from North Bay, Ontario is thrilled with his decision and solidified it after his official visit to the school.

“The reason I decided to commit to the University of Guelph was because the university campus is one of the nicest in Ontario and I could really see myself living there after high school,” explained Jerome of his decision.  “The football program is outstanding and they have a great coaching staff and great facilities.”

Guelph became my number one choice after my official visit. I have always been a big fan of their program. They have one of the best football programs in Ontario and in the country. They have a great group of guys on their team and they were very nice to me and my family while on our visit. The football team has a family -like atmosphere and I can really see myself fitting in there perfectly. I am very excited to go to training camp and see how I match up at the university level.”

The Ontario standout recently completed his high school career with Algonquin Barons of the Northern Ontario Secondary School Association (NOSSA).  For his exceptional play this past season, Jerome was selected to the Nipissing All-Star Team (NDA).   Additionally, he suited up for the Nipissing Wild of the Ontario Football Conference for the past three seasons.  In July 2013, Jerome represented his home province as a member of Team Ontario at the 2013 Football Canada Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick, where he guided the team to a bronze medal performance at the tournament.
