Queen’s Gaels prestige attracts 4

Queen’s adds two out-of-province commits and two provincial commits to their 2019 class.

When the 2019 season rolls around, Braden Reed, a linebacker from Prince George Secondary School, will be ready to get to work with the Queen’s Gaels.

Jaden Richards, a defensive back from Mercyhurst Preparatory School, Samuel Charway, a running back from the Royal Imperial Collegiate of Canada, and Liam Sutherland from Lester. P. Pearson Catholic High School will also be joining the Gaels.

Braden Reed

Braden Reed knows that when he joins the Gaels, no one will be giving a half-hearted effort.

“I chose to commit to Queen’s because of how prestigious the school is academically and all the potential the football team has. What really appealed to me was how engaging everyone at Queen’s is,” Reed said. He has been accepted into health sciences, but he is also interested in kinesiology.

“The coaching staff is amazing,” he added. “It’s unfortunate how Sheahan has stepped down after the amazing history he’s had with the program, but Steven Snyder is going to be an excellent head coach to have with a very successful background.”

The 6’1, 200lbs outside linebacker has played with the Prince George Axemen (PGMFA) and the Prince George Polars (BCSSFA) in his hometown of Prince George, BC. He also participated in the ABC Border Bowl and the 2018 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. He is a two-time provincial all-star in 2017 and 2018. He also won a defensive MVP award at the 2018 Border Bowl and was the Polars’ overall MVP.
