Ravens football players prepared for CFL draft

The Canadian Football League (CFL) Combine is the signature event leading up to the CFL Draft for the nation’s best prospects to show what they can bring to any of the league’s nine teams. Five Carleton Ravens football players were invited to compete at this year’s CFL Combine held from March 23-25 in Regina, Sask., while the 2017 CFL Draft will be held on May 7. The competing Ravens were wide receivers Nate Behar and Malcolm Carter, offensive lineman Kwabena Asare, and defensive backs Nathaniel Hamlin and Tunde Adeleke. Behar is widely viewed as the top prospect at Carleton, based on the previous CFL Draft rankings, and could become the first Raven drafted into the CFL since 1995. “I am […]

Editorial: Carleton now a top football school

If a record-setting season that saw the Carleton Ravens football team win a home playoff game for the first time in 30 years wasn’t enough to sway skeptical fans, then the results at the 2017 CFL combine should be enough evidence to show that Carleton is quickly becoming one of the top football schools in the country. Since returning to the Ontario University Athletics (OUA) in 2012 following a lengthy absence, Ravens head coach Steve Sumarah has built the roster into a Yates Cup contender.

Fourteen football players off to CFL combines

Four years ago, the Carleton Ravens football program was revived and signed its first recruiting class—now 14 members of that class will be attending national and regional Canadian Football League (CFL) combines. Carleton is only second to the University of Calgary Dinos, who are sending 18 to the combines. “Training has been going well,” said Ravens wide receiver Nate Behar. “We’ve got a great group of guys going which makes it a lot more fun for sure.” Before the national combine, the CFL will host three regional combines where a select few will be offered the chance to workout at the national combine.

Carleton sports: Top 10 games of the year

The 2016 calendar year was another entertaining one across Carleton’s various sports teams. Men’s basketball won yet another national championship, its sixth consecutive, while men’s hockey made an appearance at nationals for the second time in three seasons. The story of the year, however, was Ravens football. Steve Sumarah’s fourth-year program went 6-2, upsetting Western and winning Panda for a third-straight year in the process. With two graduating players ranked on CFL draft boards in slotback Nate Behar and offensive lineman Kwabena Aware, it may not be long before we see a Carleton player make his professional debut. This year’s list is more homogenous than the column I wrote last year, featuring fewer women’s games and tier-II sports. This is […]

Three Ravens named U Sports Football All-Canadians

Ravens football wide receiver Nate Behar, defensive back Tunde Adeleke, and running back Jayde Rowe were among the U Sports football players named to All-Canadian teams during the All-Canadian Awards Gala on Nov. 24.
