Athletes of the term

Danny Brannagan

Quarterback Danny Brannagan capped his Queen’s career with his most successful season yet. He became the first quarterback in CIS history to reach 10,000 career passing yards, finishing second to Western’s Michael Faulds on the all-time career passing list having missed two games. He also led the Gaels to their first Vanier Cup since 1992, beating three Hec Creighton nominees in Faulds, Laval’s Benoit Groulx and Calgary’s Erik Glavic on the way.

Ryan Kruyne
Men's rugby

Fourth-year lock Ryan Kruyne was named the OUA’s Most Valuable Player after notching a monstrous 99 points in eight games this season. He was a testament to the Gaels’ depth, as he scored three tries, but added 30 conversions and eight penalty goals. With last year’s captain Alistair Clark absent for much of the season playing with the Ontario Blues, Kruyne adopted the captain’s role as well as playing in three different positions over the course of the season.
