“Ryan Keays is a very polished receiver and has all the skills we are looking for in this next generation of receivers at Queen’s,” commented Gaels Head Coach Pat Sheahan.  “He has good speed and body control, runs very good routes and plays the game with passion and intelligence.”

“He has big play ability and thrives on playing under pressure. Ryan was a product of CP Allen High School in Bedford, Nova Scotia and was also a standout at St. Andrew’s College in Aurora. He is 90 plus percent student who will be enrolling in the Queen’s a School of Business this fall. He will be one of a very impressive group of Haligonians who will be wearing tri-colour this year!”
