Sisler’s, Brayden Desjarlais, would like to pursue football to the highest level possible.

Brayden Desjarlais began his football career at 7 years old by joining the North Winnipeg Nomads (Manitoba Minor Football Association). Brayden was a member of the Nomads for 8 seasons, and then joined the Sisler Spartans (Winnipeg High School Football League).

Brayden and the Nomads won back-to-back championships in the MMFA in 2012 and 2013. In his first season with Sisler, Brayden won the Junior Varsity championship in the WHSFL. In the championship game Brayden scored 4 touchdowns, and was voted Offensive MVP of the league.

Throughout the years, Brayden has received numerous offensive player of the year awards. In 2015 Brayden was voted the most outstanding player in the WHSFL, in the 2015 championship game he registered 4 touchdowns and was selected MVP of the game, he was selected as offensive player of the year at Sisler’s High School Team awards, in 2016 Brayden was selected as CTV player of the week in the WHSFL when he carried the ball for 290 yards with 2 touchdowns, and also in 2016, Brayden was selected as offensive player of the year at the Sisler team awards.

This past season, Brayden and the Spartans finished 1-6 with a young team. Brayden finished on-top of the WHSFL’s AAA Potter division in rushing yards with 1361 yards on 173 carries with an average of 7.9 yards per carry, including 7 touchdowns on the year.

Brayden chose the running back position because he can have an impact on the game. He mentioned, “I like the position because of the impact it has towards my team and the game.”

Once he’s finished high school, Brayden would like to pursue his education and continue to play football at the university level.I want to be a student athlete and graduate from University with a degree,” said Brayden. “I would like to pursue my football career to the highest level of the sport that my commitment and skill will allow me to achieve.”

At this time, Brayden hasn’t received much in terms of recruitment, but is looking forward to exploring any and all options that may arise.

In the off-season, Brayden is training with Recruit Ready. This year, Brayden will work on his speed and strength, and focus on any direction he’s given by his instructors.

The one thing that Brayden loves the most about football is the amount of focus you need to have to play the sport. He goes on to say that his family is one of the biggest influences and supporters. His teammates and coaches have been influential as well.

“The commitment and discipline that football has taught, I carry those lessons into everyday life.”
