Ravens add ‘high-energy’ commit to team

Ravens add a local commit to their 2018 class.

As the saying goes, better late than never, and for linebacker Makayeo Hall from Football North St. Joes, now was the perfect time to join the Carleton Ravens.

“Makayeo is a high-energy player who makes plays all over the field,” Head Coach Steve Sumarah said. “He is a high character player that excelled both on and off the field. The Ravens are excited to have him in the program.”

Hall won’t be the first member of his family to become a Raven. His uncle, Dechaun Beals, played for Carleton after a successful career with the Citadel High School Phoenix (NSSAFFL).

“I chose Carleton because I looked up to my uncle and his group of friends growing up, Jesse Mills, Keith Graham, Dexter Brown, and they all went to Carleton. Seeing them play there as a young kid and early teen always made me have interest (in the team),” Hall said. “Not only that, but the relationships I’ve recently build with the staff are a major reason as well.”

He added that, “I feel that the coaching staff is very easy to get along with and very relatable. They also made me feel like I was making the best choice choosing them.”

Before joining Football North, Hall, who is from Ottawa, Ontario, played with the Gloucester Raiders (NCAFA) where he was the 2015 and 2016 defensive MVP. He was also a member of the Cumberland Panthers (OPFL). In 2016 he led the Panthers in tackles and was named as the most outstanding player. This year, Hall participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge in Kingston, Ontario, as a member of Team East Varsity. Standing at 5’10, 200lbs, he has experience as a linebacker, running back and defensive back. He is interested in criminology.
