Ex Sun goes in CFL draft
Former Okanagan Sun linebacker Max Caron has found a home in the Canadian Football League.
Caron was taken by the Calgary Stampeders in the second round (16th overall) of the CFL draft Tuesday night.
The Kingston, ON native spent two seasons with the Sun in 2008 and 2009.
His 2007 season was cut short when he tore his left ACL in training camp.
Over hi two years with the Sun Caron amassed 62 tackles, two sacks, five fumble recoveries, and interception and two touchdowns.
He parlayed his time with the Sun into a four year college career at Concordia University in Montreal.
In 2011, his second year at Concordia, Caron was awarded the Presidents' Trophy as the top defensive player in Canadian University Football.
Caron headed into Tuesday's draft ranked 10th among prospects eligible for the draft.
He was the only former Sun player taken in this year's CFL draft.
