Mac beefs up defence with 2 CFC100s

McMaster welcomes two Ontario commits to their 2019 class.

When it boiled down to it, CFC100 linebackers Owen Hubert from Norwood District High School and Jonathan Kamto from St. James School couldn’t overlook an offer from the McMaster Marauders.

For Owen Hubert, McMaster was the complete package. “It has it all in my opinion. On tours, I really enjoyed the campus and its layout. The lecture halls are very up-to-date, and it is one of the top universities academically not only in Canada but in the world,” the future sociology student said.

“In terms of football, McMaster University has a great football team. There is talent on both sides of the ball, and it was quite evident that was the case when I watched them play,” he added. “McMaster has a great coaching staff. I really like and appreciate the mentality the staff has towards the game and towards their team.”

Hubert, who is 6’4, 230lbs, said that he wanted to attend a university where both athletic and academic success was possible. “I feel McMaster University presents the opportunities I desire,” he added. “I think that their (the coaches’) track record proves how good they are. I’m excited to play for a team where the coaches want to win and help players develop on and off the field.”

Hailing from Hastings, Ontario, Hubert spent three years with the Peterborough Wolverines (OFC) and five with the Norwood District Knights (EOSSFL). He helped his team to a 2018 Eastern Ontario six-a-side championship. He also made the OFC finals with the Wolverines two summers ago but fell short to the Toronto Junior Argonauts.

Before taking the next big step in his life, Hubert said, “I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to where I am today. I’m extremely excited and grateful for this opportunity and I can’t wait to give all I have.”

CFC100 Jonathan Kamto

Jonathan Kamto, who is originally from Ottawa, Ontario, has been playing down south with the St. James Saints in Hagerstown, Maryland. Now he is heading back up north to play football among the steel mills of Hamilton, Ontario. “I truly believe in the program and the general atmosphere when I visited, just felt like home,” he said. “Coach Brady was the very first college coach to ever recruit me. We go way back. I really like working with him and I feel we can accomplish a lot.”

In the 2018 season, Kamto recorded 67 solo tackles, 97 total tackles and 2.5 sacks. Averaging 12.1 tackles per game, he also caused one fumble and blocked one punt. Standing at 6’0, 220lbs, he also played with the North Gloucester Giants (NCAFA). In his five-year career, he was a two-time defensive player of the year with the bantam Giants in 2015 and 2016. In 2017, he was 1st-Team All-Conference, County and State among private schools. He is interested in business.
