Ex-Sun Van Nistelrooy to CFL Combine

Kelowna News: All-star defensive back invited to Toronto for a closer look from pro football teams

Former Okanagan Sun standout Brennan Van Nistelrooy will be auditioning his talents for pro scouts this weekend at the 2016 CFL Combine in Toronto.

The 22-year-old defensive back from Lethbridge, AB earned a spot at the showcase of prospective pro players thanks to his performance at the regional combine on Monday in Edmonton.

The Sun’s co-MVP from the 2015 BCFC season was the best in the three-cone drill among all 41 players invited with an impressive time of 6.95 seconds.

Van Nistelrooy’s other results at the regional combine were:

• 40 yard dash – 7.43

• Bench – 13

• Vertical – 35

• Broad jump – 9-9.5

• Shuffle – 4.21

The Sun’s other co-MVP, Kyle Kawamoto, also had a strong combine and posted the following results:

• 40 yard dash – 4.67

• Bench – 15

• Vertical – 38

• Broad jump – 10-1.25

• Shuffle – 4.00

• 3-Cone – 7.00

Van Nistelrooy is vying to become the second Sun player in as many years to attend the CFL Combine, then be chosen in the CFL draft.

Former Sun safety Dexter Janke was selected last year by the Calgary Stampeders.
