KINGSTON, Ont. (February 13, 2017) – Queen’s football head coach Pat Sheahan is pleased to announce the signing and commitment of receiver Richard Burton (Ottawa), defensive end David Morton (Almonte, Ont.) and offensive lineman Harrison Taylor (Ayr, Ont.). to the Gaels football program.

Burton is a 6-0, 175-pound receiver who comes to Queen’s from Nepean High School. Burton has played football with the Myers Riders in the OVFL where he was an all-star receiver.
