Moncton Purple Knight WR joins Axemen

Acadia brings in out-of-province commit to their Class of 2017.

When Cameron Morley, a wide receiver from Moncton High School, steps out onto the field with the Acadia Axemen, he will be looking to the sky for a special reason.

“One thing I always keep in my mind when training or playing is the memory of my lost friend, Zach Robichaud, who was a great teammate,” Morley said of his former Moncton Purple Knights (New Brunswick High School Football League) teammate.

Morley isn’t the only Purple Knight in the Axemen locker room. He will be joining Bailey Feltmate, Caleb Ryder, Rory Kelly and Cole Estabrooks, all of whom have also felt the sting of losing their friend Robichaud.

With the bond of honouring a lost comrade connecting them, Morley is ready to forge a more closer connection with the rest of the Acadian team. He said the players and the coaches were very welcoming to him. “I also really enjoyed my campus visit and the new things that are going on within the football program,” he said.

The 5’10, 175lbs dual slot back and receiver was informed by the coaches that the team is looking to fill in their receiver position. “So, that was a great opportunity for me,” Morley said. “One thing I really liked was how they said they don’t over-recruit like some schools might and that I was there because they wanted me to play.”

The three-year captain of the Purple Knights added that the coaching staff was awesome and very honest about where they see him fitting into the program. “They gave me a real family vibe just from talking to them, which I think will give me a great connection with them for the next four to five years,” he said. “My position coach, Coach Squires, is very fast to answer my calls or text if I have any questions and I think he will be a big part in my growth for next few years.”

In his four-year career, the product of Montcon, New Brunswick, won a 12-man championship in 2014 in his grade ten year. The following year, he recognized by his team for his receiving prowess. This past season, he was a 2016 Eastern Conference all-star and represented the U18 edition of Team New Brunswick.
