Lineman Isiah Slater returns home after two years in the U.S.

California prep star Isiah Slater commits to Stingers

Head coach Brad Collinson is pleased to welcome offensive lineman Isiah Slater, an all-star high school player from Carnegie Schools in Riverside, Calif., to the Concordia Stingers football program.

Slater, 18, is a native of LaSalle, Que. who played football and basketball at the American prep school the last two years. He played both offensive and defensive line with the Wolverines. His all-star honour came in recognition of his play on the offensive line in 2016.

Carnegie Schools won the Arrowhead League title in both 2016 and 2017.

“Isiah is a great young talent,” said Collinson. “He has a lot of potential. There’s a tremendous upside. He’s athletic and has a great attitude. He’s going to add some key depth to our offensive line. I’m looking forward to working with him.”

The six-foot-two, 300-pound lineman got his start playing football in the LaSalle and Île Perrot minor football organizations, and now he brings his unique talents to Concordia.

“I’m a very intuitive football player,” Slater said. “But at the same time I’m a quick learner and I study the game hard. I like to comprehend everything that’s going on and zone in on my responsibilities. I’m a very competitive person.”

Slater will bring that same intensity to his academics in Economics. He starts his studies and his university football career with the Stingers this fall.
