Ravens Football announces new defensive line coach

The Carleton Ravens football team has announced David Caron as their new defensive line coach. Caron called his decision to apply for the job a “no-brainer,” and cited his strong relationship with the coaching staff as a deciding factor. “It’s a program that’s heading in the right direction,” Caron said. “I think it’s an amazing staff to work with and just a great environment to coach and to work with great student athletes.” Caron was previously the defensive line and special teams coach of Les Élans du Cégep Garneau for three seasons. He got his start in coaching at his former high school, Les Loups de l’École Secondaire Curé-Antoine-Labelle, in 2007. Caron had the opportunity to coach his younger brother, […]

Six Ravens taken in 2017 CFL Draft

Six Carleton Ravens football players were taken in the 2017 Canadian Football League (CFL) Draft, which was held at the beginning of May in Toronto. It is the first time since 1999 that a Raven has been selected in the draft to join the professional ranks, and the first opportunity for the program’s best to have their shot since its rebirth in 2013. Nate Behar, the all-Canadian wide receiver, was the first Raven off the board. He was taken by the Edmonton Eskimos with the fifth overall pick. “It’s all out of your control on draft day, so it’s kind of back and forth and people are telling you rumours of where they think you’re going to go,” Behar said.

Steve Sumarah voted top Reader’s Choice coach

This past season, Carleton Ravens football head coach Steve Sumarah led the Ravens to their best finish since getting their return in 2013, reaching the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Semifinals, before falling to the Western Mustangs. For his efforts this season, Sumarah earned 66 votes, and earned The Charlatan Reader’s Choice award. “He’s a huge players coach. What that means from a players perspective is that he always cares about his players on a personal level,” former Ravens quarterback Jesse Mills said. “He’s not somebody who treats their players like they are just a person who shows up to practice to do their stuff. He takes an interest in everybody individually.” Ravens receiver Kyle VanWynsberghe agreed with Mills, and said he would describe Sumarah as a […]
