SMU commits want ‘to be a part of something great’

Huskies add three provincial commits to their 2019 class.

When the Saint Mary’s Huskies came knocking, defensive linemen Mikey Braha and Aidan Durhan McGinn from Charles P. Allen High School jumped at the chance to play for the team.

Defensive lineman Caleb Purdy from Auburn High School will also be joining the Huskies.

Mikey Braha

A football team is a support network, and Mikey Braha knows his new team will always have his back. “I chose to commit to SMU because of the family atmosphere and the coaches, players and environment around me,” he said. “Not only that but because of the work ethic and skill level they play at. I wanted to be a part of something great and Head Coach Colzie and the Huskies have just that.”

When Braha started his recruitment, the Huskies were never far away. “The coaching staff has been in contact with me since day one. They’ve been a huge help with my improvement on and off the field and I feel as if they can push me to the next level for the next four to five years for sure,” he said.

In his career, Braha, who is from Bedford, Nova Scotia, has been a member of the BSMF Saints and the Charles P. Allen Cheetahs (NSSAF). He was a Division 1 all-star and team captain in grade 11 and 12. This past season he was named as the most valuable. While he was invited to the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge in grade 11 and 12, he was unable to attend either event. Standing at 6’1, 205lbs, he is interested in business.

Having lost the last two provincial championships, Braha is ready to get winning with the Huskies. He said, “I cannot wait to get started and be a part of such an amazing brotherhood.”

Aidan Durhan McGinn

There is no place that Aidan Durhan McGinn would rather be than with the Huskies. “SMU is close to home, has a great football program, offers a great campus and academics and lots of my friends are going to (or) will be on the football team,” the product of Bedford said.

“Coaching staff seems motivated, organized and the coaches are very helpful,” he added.

The 6’4, 220lbs defensive end has only been playing football for two years with the Cheetahs. He is interested in either biology or physics.

Caleb Purdy

Caleb Purdy spent his high school career with the Auburn Eagles (NSSAF). Hailing from Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, Purdy, who is 6’6, was a provincial all-star in the Nova Conference (Division 1) in 2018.
