Queen’s head coach ‘truly cares about his players’

Queen’s adds an out-of-province commit and a northern Ontario commit to their 2018 class.

When their new careers begin, offensive lineman Jacob Butler from Chilliwack High School and defensive back Jake Robertson from St. Ignatius High School will be looking to make the Queen’s Gaels that much stronger offensively and defensively.

Being a Gael is a family affair for Jacob Butler. Both of his parents are Queen’s alumni. But, it was much more than family history that drew him to the Gaels. “I committed because when I visited, Head Coach Pat Sheahan seemed to truly care about his players and the campus was great,” Butler said. “I haven’t met a lot of the coaching staff, but the head coach is a great guy and everyone I’ve contacted seems to care about the players and that’s important to me.”

Butler, who is interested in engineering, spent nine years with the Chilliwack Giants in his hometown of Chilliwack, BC. Last season, the 6’5, 285lbs left tackle played with the Langley Stampeders (VMFL). Butler won an offensive lineman MVP award at the 2016 ABC Border Bowl. He also was the Stampeders’ offensive lineman MVP. He helped the team go undefeated, capping it off with a provincial championship win.

Jake Robertson will be heading south from his hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario. Standing at 6’0, 195lbs, he has played as both a cornerback and wide receiver with the St. Ignatius Falcons (NWOSSAA).
