York Lions offer future to 3

York adds three GTA commits to their 2018 class.

Alfred Olay, a receiver from Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School, knows that the York Lions will treat him like family.

Running back D’Andre Clarke-Bastien from Sir Wilfrid Laurier Collegiate Institute and offensive lineman San Elibuyuk from King City High School will also be joining the Lions.

Alfred Olay

When Alfred Olay joins the Lions, it will be a family reunion. “The reason why I chose York is because they have a great facility. It’s not too far away from home and my brother is also on the team and it would be great to live with him again and having him as my role model,” said Olay, who is from Courtice, Ontario.

“The coaching staff was really nice and welcoming to me,” he added, “and I believe that the coaching staff can make me the best athlete I can be.”

Olay, who is 5’8, 155lbs, spent four years with the Oshawa Hawkeyes (OVFL) and five with the Holy Trinity Titans (LOSSA). He helped his team with two LOSSA championships, once in his second year where he was also the finals’ offensive MVP, and once in his fifth year where he was the game’s defensive MVP. He was also his team’s MVP in 2017. He is interested in mechanical engineering.

D’Andre Clarke-Bastien

D’Andre Clarke-Bastien is from Scarborough, Ontario, where he was a member of the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Blue Devils (TDSB). The 5’8, 185lbs athlete also competed in track and field where he won an OFSAA medal in the 4x100m event.

San Elibuyuk

San Elibuyuk has been a ‘lion’ his entire career. He has played with the King City Lions (YRAA) and the York Region Lions (OFVL) in his hometown of Richmond Hill, Ontario. Standing at 6’2, 225lbs, he has been a guard, defensive tackle and centre.
