Carleton Ravens win fourth Panda Game in a row

In front of another record-breaking, sell-out crowd, the Carleton Ravens marked their fourth consecutive Panda Game victory, defeating the University of Ottawa (U of O) Gee-Gees by a score of 33-30 in double overtime. “This game is such a rivalry, this game is talked about weeks in advance and when you walk on that field there’s a whole lot of pride in both programs,” said Carleton Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah. But, this year’s Panda Game opened up with a deeper meaning to both sides. Carleton, coming off a blowout win last season, looked to turn around their season after a disappointing 1-3 start. For the U of O, tragedy rocked the team with the sudden death of defensive lineman […]

Quarterback Michael Arruda looking to soar with Carleton

Michael Arruda has succeeded at every level he has played at. Starting at Philemon Wright High School in Gatineau, Quebec,  Arruda quickly rose through the ranks of Quebec-born players. By the time he had entered CEGEP, he had already represented and won a Bol D’or (the Quebec championship for both high school and CEGEP) with his high school team. With early success, he was able to make a name for himself as an impressive quarterback. Already a highly touted prospect coming out of high school, he attended Champlain-Lennoxville, a CEGEP just outside of Sherbrooke, QC.

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 […]
