NFL Draft: CFC100 Class of 2017 QB Tre Ford receives mini-camp invite

A Canadian quarterback out of U Sports signing in the NFL?

You’re not dreaming anymore as CFC100 Class of 2017 QB Tre Ford out of Waterloo has signed a mini-camp deal with the Baltimore Ravens following the 2022 NFL Draft.

We began tracking the Niagara Falls, ON native during his high school career at A.N. Myer, where he helped transform the program into a force in Ontario winning three straight OFSAA titles. He was ranked the top quarterback prospect on the CFC100 Class of 2017 High School Rankings, and shocked the nation when he decided to sign with Waterloo, who went 0-16 the two years prior to his arrival.

Ford and his twin brother, CFC100 DB Tyrell Ford, were gamechangers from day one securing a 4-4 record their first year on campus with the Warriors. They kept the momentum rolling in 2019 winning the first playoff game in the program’s history since 1999, and Ford capped off the Cinderella story by winning the prestigious Hec Crighton award for the Most Outstanding Player in U Sports this past season. He might be the greatest dual-threat to ever play the sport in Canada totaling 8003 passing yards, 5138 rushing yards and 83 combined touchdowns.

Social media was set on fire again by Ford when he was invited to the University at Buffalo’s pro day. He didn’t waste the opportunity in the spotlight running a 4.45 forty-yard dash, which turns a feel-good story into a serious piece of news that scouts should be looking at. Clearly the Ravens scouts were intrigued, and are ready to offer the rare opportunity for a Canadian quarterback to stick in the NFL.

In a twist of fate, Tyrell might become his future rival for the first time ever after signing a mini-camp deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
