OPC: Team Central Varsity OL Comstive seeks to outsmart competition (VIDEO)

The countdown begins to CanadaFootballChat.com Ontario Prospect Challenge on the May 1st weekend.  In the days leading up to OPC, CFC will preview the teams, coaches and players participating in the big event.

Kyle Comstive has demonstrated throughout his gridiron career that he’s one tactful, intelligent offensive lineman.

“As a player you can’t rely on always having a physical edge, especially playing offensive-line, out smarting my opponent will give me the ability to have a better chance of winning ever rep,” elaborated the 6’3, 290 pound standout.

During his time with both the Innisdale Invaders of the Georgian Bay Secondary School Athletic Association (GBSSAA) and Huronia Stallions of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC),  Comstive has shown his passion not only for the game, but also for the offensive line position.

“I play offensive line simply because I love playing it,” expressed Comstive.  “Getting physical on every play never gets boring.”

“The best part about playing offensive line is how it is always different. Defensive linemen have different tendencies but their decision is still different on almost every play, making each play new and exciting.”

On the field, the Ontario standout tries to emulate his game to a CFL lineman – Chris Van Zeyl of the Toronto Argonauts.

“Chris Van Zeyl has had a massive impact on me,” commented the offensive lineman.  “Having the opportunity to get coached by him has made me into a better player as well as person”

On the May 1st weekend, Comstive will add a significant gridiron moment in his career as he will participate in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) as a member of Team Central’s varsity squad.

It wasn’t a hard decision for the lineman whether or not to give OPC a shot.

“The process of deciding to tryout was simple; I wanted to go and compete,” recalled Comstive.  “The only process was getting my body ready to go compete.”

Grateful for the opportunity, the Team Central participant will use this experience as a measuring stick.

“I’m most looking forward to getting to compete in the OPC, playing against some of the best players around will give me a good indication as to where I am as a player,” said the Team Central lineman about the special opportunity.

Moreover, Comstive has enjoyed the OPC process thus far.

“So far the experience has been fun,” added the Ontario standout.  “Getting to compete and play football has made this experience worthwhile.”

Comstive has seized the chance to learn, grow and develop by the instruction provided by the OPC coaching staff.

“Meeting new coaches learning new systems has been an interesting process; you get accustom to high-school and summer coaches so when I get the chance to see what it’s like on other teams it’s always interesting,” said the offensive standout.

One thing that has unfazed him is the pressure that comes with playing on a grander stage than he has been accustomed to during his gridiron career. Additionally, he has taken a couple of steps to ensure that he will be ready once kickoff happens.

“I won’t let the pressure of the OPC game get to me as I won’t look at it as more than any other game,” elaborated Comstive.  “I’m just going to go out and do what I do best.”

“I have been training hard and getting in shape so that I can play my best at the game.”

Overall, Comstive’s OPC team and personal objectives are the same.

“The goals I have for the OPC is to go out and win, be aggressive and do what it takes to win the game,” offered the Team Central varsity lineman.

While he is not familiar with many players on Team East’s varsity squad, Comstive hopes it will be an aggressive atmosphere between both teams.

“I am unaware of any specific players I will be competing against,” said Comstive.  “It will be great to compete against some of the best at our age though.”

For Comstive, OPC is an avenue where he can attempt to gain the attention of scouts and recruiters who will be in attendance.  The offensive lineman, who is set to enter university in 2016, is open to any possibilities that may come his way.

“I would consider all schools that will give me a chance to exceed as a student-athlete through my university career,” commented the Team Central lineman, who would like to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Business in either marketing or sports management.

No matter what happens at OPC, Comstive hopes to leave a favourable impression with recruiters.

“I’d like to be known for the type of offensive lineman I strive to be physical, athletic, intelligent and dominant,” expressed Comstive.
