Eleven-year-old Nathan O’Reilly started playing football at the age of seven, and he just loved the teamwork of the game.

The running back, who currently plays in the Cambridge Minor Football Association (CMFA) with the Cambridge Lions, has also made many friends and played many positions throughout his football career.

His goals for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) are to be a team leader, give his best and all he has in practice and games.

He also wants to be able to pump up his teammates and help them if needed.

During the offseason, Nathan has been going for jogs and working out. He also practices and plays with his brother, who is also trying out for OPC.

Moreover, on the field his role model is Odell Beckham Jr. because after that catch he made he was considered a one hit wonder, but after missing his first couple of games his rookie year he still showed everyone that he was great.

“Right now he is making unbelievable catches and is one of the best players ever,” said Nathan.

When the Lion first saw football on TV, it looked so fun and exciting that he had to give it a try and since he was a rough kid he fit in.

“I love hitting, I play on offence most of the time but when I get the chance I will hit anyone that tries to tackle me,” commented Nathan on the fast action game of football.

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
