Pair of CFC100 WRs add talents to Ravens

Ravens welcome two local commits to their 2019 class.

CFC100 wide receivers Honoreal Iloki and Tristan Ready from Football North St. Joes are ready to show the OUA exactly why they are considered some of the top receivers in Canada after signing with the Carleton Ravens.

CFC100 FPC Honoreal Iloki

Honoreal Iloki was facing down the very real possibility that he had played his last down of football. Having taken a year off from the sport, he spent the time attending the University of Ottawa. “Thinking I was probably done playing football, I refound that burning passion that every football player has as I watched all of my brother’s games this year,” Iloki said.

His older brother Phil currently plays for the Ravens as a wide receiver. “My mother loves watching games and given this is my brother’s last year, it’s the least I could do for her,” Iloki said. “Also, I think I’ve been a part of the team since my brother first committed here and having the opportunity to learn and play with him will be pretty cool.”

Phil won’t be the only person Iloki knows in the locker room. He said he has developed many friends on the team already. “So, it was kind of an easy choice when it was all set and done,” he said. “I love my city…Carleton is the place where it feels the most like home to me.”

Adding to the familiarly, Iloki said he has known the Carleton coaches for many years, particularly the receiver’s coach. “Coach Sacoby coached me back in 2014 on Team Ontario. Him and I barely talk about football, which is super cool,” Iloki said.

Iloki, who is currently in economics, stands at 6’2, 197lbs. He has played with Football North St. Joes and the Ottawa Myers Riders (OVFL). In 2016 he participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge and was game MVP. He said he enjoyed the experience. Adding to his accolades, he is a five-time MVP winner, a former OVFL all-star and a four-time provincial champion with the Riders between 2013 and 2017.

“I have been a part of many championship teams and I hope to bring my winning mentality and work ethic to Carleton,” he said. “As for individual accomplishments, I want to get my degree and leave my print on Carleton football as one of it’s best receivers of all time.”

Before heading to the next level, Iloki said he would like to thank his first coach, Jamie Slattery, who “taught me many lessons that I’ve applied to my everyday life.”

CFC100 FPC Tristan Ready

Tristan Ready has been on Carleton’s radar for quite some time, having verbally committed back in May of 2018 despite not graduating until 2019. He has been with Football North St. Joes since its inception in 2016. He also played with the Riders from 2015 to 2017. Standing at 6’1, 195lbs, he participated in the 2017 FPC as a member of Team Central. He is from Boucherville, Québec, where he played with Le Grizzlis de Boucherville (LFMM). He also was a member of the West Carleton Wolverines (NCAFA) after moving to Arnprior, Ontario. Before joining St. Joes, he played high school ball with the Arnprior Redmen (EOSSAA).
