Wilfrid Laurier lands NCAA quarterback transfer from Brampton, Ontario: Travis Eman (VIDEO)

The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks have just become stronger at the quarterback position by landing the services of NCAA transfer Travis Eman.

Eman, the 6’2, 220 pound Brampton, Ontario pivot comes to the Golden Hawks from the Furman Paladins which is an NCAA Division 1 school team based out of Greenville, South Carolina.  Last season with the Paladins, he was redshirted and served a reserve signal caller.  However, he is leaving the Paladins to return home due to an illness in his family.  With this transfer, Eman will have all five years of eligibility intact in the CIS.  He does not lose any years under the CIS transfer regulations.

Prior to suiting up for the Paladins, Eman played two years of high school football for the Canisius Golden Griffins in Buffalo, New York.  In his senior year with the Griffins (2010), he had 76 completions in 152 attempts, 1575 total passing yards, and 26 passing touchdowns. Eman also registered 971 rushing yards on 79 carries and 20 touchdowns.

Other teams the quarterback has previously suited up for include the Brampton Bulldogs of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and St. Margueritte d’Youville Panthers.  Moreover, he has previously represented his home province as a member of Team Ontario West at the Football Canada Cup.

Eman is set to join the Golden Hawks later this week as the team’s training camp is set to begin this upcoming weekend.
