Local talent staying in Ottawa, now flying with Carleton

Carleton welcomes a local commit to their Class of 2017.

After commiting to Carleton University, defensive back Kerwin Guiste from St. Peter’s High School will be staying in the city where his career began.

The Ravens football team was revived only four years ago, but the team has turned a few heads in their short rebirth. Guiste said he committed to Carleton because of the “great atmosphere and the (fact that the) Carleton Ravens are on the rise to do something special.”

Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Guiste has the added bonus of playing for one of his hometown teams. He said it appealed to him because can play in front of his family for a “great all-around coaching staff.”

Currently with the Ottawa Sooners Senior Varsity team, Guiste has been toiling away to get where he is today. “I’ve been working hard ever since I was young to perfect my talents,” he said. “I did extra cone drills, spent time after practice, watched film all the time to pick out my mistakes.”

Standing at 6’0, 165lbs, he played with the St. Peter Knights (National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association) in high school. From 2015-2016, he was a city champion. In his ten-year career, he has suited up for the Orleans Bengals (National Capital Amateur Football Association) and the Cumberland Panthers (NCAFA).

Guiste will be taking an undeclared major to test out the waters before committing to a program.
