One step closer

CEGEP defensive end newest recruit to join OUA team’s 2014 class.

Jeremy Magan-France wants to achieve the ultimate gridiron dream.

In his quest to reach the summit, the 6’2, 250 pound defensive end/tackle from Rexdale, Ontario will continue his career with the Carleton Ravens.  He will join the Ravens for the 2014 OUA season.

Academics and football were both significant factors in his decision.

“I committed to Carleton to achieve my dream on becoming a professional athlete,” expressed Magan-France.  “One of the main reasons why I chose to commit to Carleton was academics.”

“I really believe I will graduate from Carleton not only as a CFL football player but also as an educated scholar who will have a career outside of sports. I believe that the Defensive Line Coach (Darrell) Adams at Carleton can help me reach my dream of becoming a CFL player.”

Moreover, Magan was influenced by several individuals and that played a role in his final decision.

“Finally the main reason why I chose to play at Carleton was because of someone who has impacted my life, and my career, and is one of my role models, who I really look up to – Mayor Rob Ford who has taught me respect, and discipline,” explained the Ontario defensive standout.  “Rob Ford has made me who I am today now I will be following his footsteps and attending the same university as he did.”
“Also I would like to shout out Rob Ford, Coach Joncas, Steven Adu, Travis Jennings, and last but not least Andre Pokhudon who has pushed and supported me mentally, and financially so I would get to university and play the sport I love.”

Magan-France joins the Ravens after guiding CEGEP Division 1 team, Champlain-Lennoxville Cougars to a Bol D’Or Championship this past fall. Additionally, he has suited up for the Don Bosco Eagles of the Toronto District College Athletic Association (TDCAA) and the Metro Toronto Wildcats of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

As for the Ravens, the team is looking forward to having a player with a wealth of experience and playmaking abilities join their defensive unit.

“Jeremy has played at a high level of football this year and joins some of his team mates on the Ravens,” commented Ravens Head Coach Steve Sumarah.  “Coming off a Bol D’Or Championship, we see Jeremy being an intense leader in our program.”

“With his ability to play inside and on the edge we are excited to have him in our program.”
