LB End enjoys the brotherhood of the game

Ontario product, Cameron End, will likely stay within the province to further his education and football career.

Cameron End joined his first football team in grade six playing for the Newmarket Bucs, now called the York Region Lions (York Region Athletic Association). In his first season with the Bucs, Cameron earned Rookie of the Year, and fell in love with the game. Two seasons ago, Cameron received the most dedicated player.

Currently, Cameron is playing for the St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs (York Region Athletic Association). In grade 10, Cameron won defensive MVP for his team.

In his final season with the Mustangs, Cameron’s team had a good run but lost to Huron Heights in the finals. Cameron added, “With the only losses coming from that school it was a good year.”

“I love linebacker because you are the quarterback of the defense,” explained Cameron. “I like the responsibility of me having to know what every position does inside and out and being able to lead the team in both aspect of the game run defense and pass defense you get the opportunity to make as many plays as you can and it’s on me to do so I love that pressure and responsibility you have when being linebacker.”

Cameron has modeled his game after some of the greats at his position. When he was younger, he always looked up to NFL legend Ray Lewis. Cameron said, “I always looked up to Ray Lewis as he was an aggressive physical player and that’s how I like to play.”

Next year, Cameron would like to stay within Ontario and the OUA (Ontario University Athletics) because there are some really good programs within the league that he’s interested in.

Recruitment has gone well for Cameron. He mentioned, “I have been talking to many schools I just got to find the right fit for myself, I haven’t committed yet but will probably be waiting for a bit before I do so.”

When he gets to the next level, Cameron is hoping to adjust fairly quickly. The young linebacker has played with and against U Sports players, so he’s hoping to steal what he learned from them to better himself.

Two areas that Cameron is going to focus on are his speed and leg strength. Cameron is focusing on these specific areas because he’s been told the speed of the game is a big jump from high school to university.

Cameron started playing football after his older brother joined first, and he followed his footsteps. Cameron got hooked because he loved the physicality and contact of the game. Football has become a big part of Cameron’s life, and it has taught him many lessons. He says, “Football is a big part of my life it taught me so many lessons that will stick with me throughout my life even when I’m done playing, it’s not just a team but a family and brotherhood you get into on the team is irreplaceable.”

The most influential people in Cameron’s everyday life have been head coach Joe Gaudio, and his parents. “They all play a huge role into getting me where I am today and without any of them I would not be the same player or person,” said Cameron.

Cameron applies the lessons he has learned in football through everyday tasks, simple leadership roles, and team management in the classroom to ensure that they do the best they can, as well as show mutual respect to everyone no matter who and also use perseverance to never give up and to try the best that they can.
