With the receiving cupboard starting to look a little bare, the Queen’s Golden Gaels went shopping this recruiting season for people who could catch the football.

It seems they were successful. Fully one-third of the young men who formally signed their letters of intent Monday to attend Queen’s hope one day to do that for the Gaels.

“That was goal No. 1, to rebuild the receiving corps,” Gaels coach Pat Sheahan said, “not only with some talent, but with some depth.”

Things remain civil in the Osei Kusi household in Brampton.

So far, big brother Ricky, the all-conference defensive end of the Western Mustangs, hasn’t made much of a fuss over the fact that kid brother Chris has chosen to cast his football lot with the arch-rival Queen’s Golden Gaels.

Chris Osei Kusi chuckled at the suggestion that Ricky might have already engaged in some good natured trash talk. “Just a bit,” he said. “We kind of talked about it.”

Ricky Osei Kusi is a highly touted prospect for the Canadian Football League draft in May, and is a good candidate to play in the league next year.

“If my brother ends up going back to Western, there will probably be a little more taunting in Week 4,” Chris said with a grin. “I’ve already got it marked on my calendar. I’m ready for that week.”

You might find some people who grow up playing quarterback who regret the day when someone tells them they’re no longer going to be the guy doing the talking in the huddle.

Jeremy Pendergast wouldn’t be one of them.

“Very happy,” is how the former Holy Cross Crusader described what it feels like now to be catching footballs, rather than throwing them.

“Quarterback’s a hard position,” he said Monday, when he was one of 15 players unveiled as part of the Queen’s Golden Gaels freshman class of 2015, delighted to be introduced as a receiver. “I couldn’t play quarterback at the next level; it’d be too tough.”

Who’d have thought that six months after a restless Grade 13 student decided to play football for the first time in his life, Carter Matheson would be heading to the University of Ottawa to cast his lot, not with the basketball team, but with the football Gee-Gees.

“Nobody saw this coming,” Suche James said. “Nobody.”

Matheson has long been regarded as one of the city’s premier basketball players, the best player on successive Frontenac teams that went to Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations championships.

It was at an OFSAA Bowl football game, however, where the Falcons defeated Toronto Richview, that three Gee-Gees coaches noticed Matheson. He caught four passes that day, in just the ninth football game of his life.

It was much different this time.

A year ago, Harrison Kelertas came home from the Ontario University Athletics fencing championships empty handed. “I was very close to getting two bronze medals,” he recalled. “I lost both (the individual and team) by one hit from the same guy in both categories.

“This year I went back and told myself I would get it, and it finally happened.”

Kelertas won a pair of bronze medals at this year’s provincial championships, and Wednesday night that achievement led to his getting another prize, the Tommy Smart Cup as the outstanding male athlete, at the annual athletic awards night at Royal Military College.
