Despite having to move to a new province, Aidan McKeown, a quarterback from Canada Prep Academy, feels right at home with the Saint Mary’s University Huskies.

“I chose to commit to SMU for a couple of reasons. I loved the coaches. They were all very friendly and helpful in the recruiting process and really made me feel wanted at the school,” McKeown said. “The coaching staff was amazing. Head Coach Colzie and Coach Tufford were both very welcoming in my visit there…also, they both have very rich football pasts both playing and coaching.”

The coaches weren’t the only ones who opened their arms to McKeown. “I loved the family environment of SMU and how friendly all the players were and how easy it was to get along with them,” he said. “The overall vibe of the school is what really appealed to me.”

In his four years of football, McKeown has played with the Toronto Metro Wildcats, the Toronto Jr. Argos (OFC) and the Scarborough Thunder (OVFL). While with the W.A. Porter Collegiate Institute Blue Eagles (TDSSAA), he won three MVP awards in grade 10, 11 and 12. While at Canada Prep in his final year of high school, the 6’3, 185lbs product of Scarborough, Ontario, was named as the offensive player of the year. Last year, he participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge.
