Guelph added another CFC100 player in Ethan Pyle, a ferocious lineman with athletic instincts. He participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge and is a sought-after commodity.

“Ethan Pyle is one of the best offensive line recruits in this year’s class. Highly ranked, Team Ontario, Team Canada, athletic, tough and aggressive,” said Sheahan. “We are thrilled that Ethan chose the University of Guelph and are looking forward to his ability and leadership on the offensive line.”
