Burlington, Ont. – Stepping onto the university gridiron for the first time can seem daunting for some, but for others, it simply marks the next step in their budding career. For newcomer Nathan Clark (Kingsley, N.B.), took on the challenge with open arms, and as a result has been named to the 2021 OUA all-rookies.
Clark soared to a solid opening season on the gridiron. The Ravens defensive lineman first found his footing in one of the biggest games on the university sports calendar, picking up a pair of assisted tackles in the Panda Game.
He would chip in another three tackles in his following two games before capping off the regular season with his strongest outing to date (3.5 tackles, 1 tackle for loss).
The complete list of 2021 OUA football all-rookies is as follows:
