“Keegan Arnyek is extremely fast, probably the quickest kid we’ve recruited in a long time.”
That praise was from Head Coach Brian Towriss when speaking of Keegan, who he considers one of the top high school defensive back recruits the Huskies have seen in years.
“We see him playing boundary corner,” continues Towriss, “and being one of the top man-to-man guys we have. He’s a little short, but has a tremendous vertical jump. He will be the best man-to-man cover guy in Western Canada.”
Arnyek comes to the Huskies from Vanier Collegiate in Moose Jaw. He was a member of the 2010 Football Canada Cup champions as a starter for Team Saskatchewan.
“I mainly chose the U of S because it is where I have always imagined myself going,” says Keegan. “I have family in Saskatoon and many friends on the team and in the University. Then there is the whole Huskie football side of it, which really made me make the decision.”
Keegan has enrolled in the College of Engineering with the intention of being a chemical engineer. He feels his greatest strengths on the field are his speed and quickness.
Keegan caught a lot of attention at spring camp and was a starter at corner during the Sunday scrimmage. “Spring camp gave me a good feel for football at the next level,” he said. “It is a big transition from high school to university football. What I mostly need to work on is my physicality on the field and getting my strength up.”
