The 6’2″, 220lbs receiver/h-back prospect currently plays for the London Jr. Mustangs, so I don’t think we need to use much creative power to figure out how this one came about. After having his 2017 high school season end in heartbreak with a broken ankle, he returned on a mission last season helping the Gemini’s win the ‘B’ Championship, an honour Fortune told CFC he’s extremely proud of after in a recent profile,

“My most memorable moment would have to come from this past high school season. Entering my freshman year, we left the varsity league and joined the TVRAA division. After going 0-6 my freshman year, sophomore year we went 1-5 and my season ended on a broken ankle, our program really made a huge step. This past season we won the ‘B’ championship. To most this is not a big accomplishment but after seeing where we started it’s a huge step in the right direction for our program.”

Fortune also did a little foreshadowing stating that Western’s running backs coach, Matt Snyder, played a huge influence already during his youth career with the London Jr. Mustangs,

“The one coach who has had the biggest impact on my development as a football player would be coach Matt Snyder. Not having a male role model in my life, I feel that I can look up to coach Snyder as a role model. He is an outstanding coach who will do everything he can to see you succeed on the field. But more importantly he is going to help you become a better person off the field. This has helped me become the player that I am today.”

Fortune is currently ranked 15th in the Class of 2020 receiver rankings, and 4th best from Ontario.
