Queen’s Gaels game-day ‘unlike any other’

Queen’s brings in an out-of-province commit to their Class of 2018.

Owen Stewart, a defensive lineman from Vancouver College, seems to have shown up at the right time for the Queen’s Gaels.

“They had just graduated both of their starting defensive ends, so it felt like a great fit,” Stewart said, whose father is a Queen’s alumnus. “The coaching staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel like Queen’s would be the ideal place for me to develop as a player.”

When Stewart visited Kingston, he knew it was the place for him. “I loved the city of Kingston itself and it was, by far, the most enjoyable city I had visited…as soon as I got there, I loved the small university town atmosphere,” he said.

“Another thing that also appealed to me was the game-day experience at Queen’s, which was unlike anything at any other school I was seriously considering,” he added. “The new stadium and weight training facilities were also very appealing, along with how the current players on the team treated me like family while I was on the visit. I felt a strong sense of brotherhood on the team.”

Stewart has only ever suited up for the Vancouver College Fighting Irish (BC Secondary Schools Athletic Association) in his hometown of Vancouver, BC. The 6’4, 230lbs athlete was named as a conference all-star and team MVP in 2017. He plans on taking political science with the goal of attending law school.
