Staying ahead of the game

St Roch Ravens pivot Gouveia considering four  OUA schools.

While he still has a couple of years before making the biggest decision of his gridiron and academic career, St. Roch Ravens quarterback Kyle Gouveia has already given some thought to the “big” decision that lies ahead.

Kyle took up football at the age of eight and has been a quarterback since he was eleven, playing his entire football career for Brampton Minor Football, while recently playing for the St. Roch Ravens of the Region of Peel Secondary Schools Athletic Association (ROPSSAA).

Over the span of his football career, Kyle has moved from house league, to rep and now plays at the junior varsity level in the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

Kyle was named Most Valuable Player for junior varsity Bulldogs team last season, and despite the individual honours, he talks about a team victory as his most memorable.

“My most memorable football experience would have to be when I was part of the Team Ontario Selects team that beat team USA 20-19 in Texas in February, he states. “It was truly an amazing experience that I will remember for the rest of my life.”

Kyle has another year left of high school ball before he enters the recruitment process but is already thinking of his future and has some schools in mind for when he does make the leap.

“I’m interested in McMaster, Western, Guelph and Queens,” he says. “I feel that all offer great opportunities both on the football field and academically.”

With the support of his family, Kyle has been able to balance his love for football with his academic prowess and requirements.

“The most influential people to me in both my life and in football would have to be my family,” he explains. “They always encourage me to try and reach my goals and support me in everything I do both on and off the football field.”

He also describes his coaches as excellent role models, as well as the teammates that he shares the field with.

“My coaches are influential to me in football but also in life as people that I know I can go to for advice and guidance,” says Kyle. “I feel that my teammates are influential to me as they help motivate me, knowing that they have my back on and off the field.”
