Cameron Desjardins’ career has included three years at the high school level, two years in junior and one in senior, for Arnprior Redmen.

Cameron has also played a year of bantam with the West Carleton Wolverines.

Currently, Cameron is part of the varsity Ottawa Myers Riders of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and the National Capital Amateur Football Association’s (NCAFA) midget Nepean Eagles.

The Eagles standout’s primary position is along the offensive line, playing right guard, left guard and centre.

During the offseason, he works out in Arnprior at Ultimate Fitness Gym and is enrolled in an athlete program there. He has been invited to the Canadian Football Institute’s program for offensive linemen, which is designed to improve skills and abilities.


The Eagles standout’s goal for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) is to try and complete the challenge and hopefully make the team.

“It is a good opportunity to get coached by some of the best in the sport and to test my abilities against the best players out there,” said Cameron, whose goal it is to make the #CFC100.

In the future, the offensive lineman hopes to play at the CIS level either at Acadia, Carleton or Ottawa. He has not had any official visits yet or been in contact with any of these schools as of yet.

Cameron loves the sport because of the challenge, contact and the opportunity to be aggressive.

His dol is the Yanda Marshal, offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens because he plays his position, is strong and aggressive.
