CFC100 testimonials

“It is an honour to be ranked at all and to be ranked #2 is really special. But for all the top 100 who are continuing their dreams of playing University ball we all went through the process of hard work and continued support from our coaches and parents. I say good luck to them all. I was told something from one of my UCONN coaches the other day and that is I was not given a scholarship. I earned it. Thanks!” – Trey Rutherford, recent UConn Huskies commit.

“Being ranked #7 on the CFC TOP 100 has been one of my greatest achievements and I am extremely thankful. There are so many talented football players across Canada and I am fortunate to be one of them. It seems every year Canadian Teams are beating American Teams. Canada has made great strides in catching up to the Football Juggernaut. I started out the season at #28 and I finished within the Top 10. There is one piece of advice I would like to pass on to future classes. No matter where you are ranked today, tomorrow is a chance to prove you are better!” – Zach Wilkinson, recent Northern Colorado commit

“Being ranked in the top 10 (#4 was my highest) was a huge honor, however I would be lying to you if I said as a competitive and aspiring athlete that I was satisfied with being #4. You have to have the mindset that anything but #1 is not acceptable, and when you hold yourself to that standard it only makes you more motivated because you believe yourself that you deserve #1.While rankings are something to take pride in, they do not reflect all aspects, such as your academics and character, and I believe that there is no real ranking system out there that can judge people by all those aspects. Rankings give you motivation to get to the top, and show everyone who doubted you were #1 wrong.” – Arran McRae, recent Guelph Gryphons commit
