FOX 40 COACH OF THE YEAR: Kwesi Loney, Carleton

MONTREAL, Quebec – A perennial presence in the U SPORTS Top 10, Loney led the Ravens to a nearly undefeated record, going 13-1-0 on the year. The former Ravens player guided his team to success on both sides of the ball, with the black birds soaring to an OUA second-ranked 38 goals for and a tie for league-low in goals allowed (five). Alongside Conte’s major award, meanwhile, Loney also sees an additional two players earn All-Canadian selections, including one of the first team variety.

“I am so pleased that Kwesi has been recognized by his peers for the tremendous work he has put in to build our men’s soccer program,” said Jennifer Brenning, Carleton’s Assistant Vice President of Recreations and Athletics. “He has recruited top talent to Carleton University who are not only doing amazing things on the field of play but also having success in the classroom as well as giving back to the community with a very successful Junior Ravens Soccer program. Congratulations to Kwesi and the Ravens soccer team for their amazing season. It is much deserved recognition for all that Kwesi is doing for soccer in our community.”
