Class of 2023 - Richard Graham

The heart of the Ottawa Sooners defence

The Ottawa Sooners rejoined the CJFL and the Ontario Conference in 2022 and made an immediate impact.   As a team they finished 5-3 and earned a playoff berth as the third seed.

Their defence was solid led by defensive lineman Richard Graham. He is very versatile and has the ability to drop back to play linebacker whenever the coaching staff needs him to.  He finished last year with 24 tackles, had five assists, 2.5 sacks, had had three defensive touchdowns, two on interceptions and one fumble recovery for a major.  He also blocked a kick, had a knockdown, forced a fumble, and recovered two fumbles. 

He was named an Ontario Conference All-Star and will no doubt lead the Sooners defence this coming season.   Check out his highlights HERE as a member of the CJFL Class of 2023!
