Queen's leads all schools with five players headed to CFL evaluation camp
Canadian Interuniversity Sport defensive player of the year, Thaine Carter (a fourth-year Arts and Science student) of Kelowna, B.C., is among five Queen's football players selected to participate in the Canadian Football League's Evaluation Camp taking place March 6 to 8 in Toronto.
Queen's will also be represented by fourth-year Arts and Science students Jim Allin, Dan Bederman, and Dee Sterling, and fourth-year Business student Osie Ukwuoma.
Twenty-four Canadian universities and five American colleges will be represented at the camp. Queen's leads all schools in players attending with five. The Ottawa Gee-Gees will send four players while Calgary, Laval and Bishop's each have three.
Two other people with Queen's connections will take part in the camp: Guelph's Brad Crawford and Calgary's Deji Oduwole. Crawford is the younger brother of Bryan Crawford, a Queen's alumni and current member of the Toronto Argonauts, and Oduwole is the younger brother of current Gael Jay Oduwole.
Tickets for the 2009 Queen's football season are now on sale at the Physical Education Centre on campus or by calling 613-533-2500. The Gaels open their 2009 campaign at home against the Guelph Gryphons on Labour Day Monday.
