It didn’t take long for Chatham’s Clark Green to do something exceptional at the CIS football level. The freshman football player set a Quebec university football record kicking with the Concordia University Stingers football team, in only his third CIS game.

Losing their fourth straight, this time a 40-18 decision to the Bishop’s Gaiters, Green set a new RSEQ football record, punting the ball 90-yards, after a series early in the fourth quarter. The kick, which started on his own 19-yard-line, pinned the Gaiters on their own 1-yard-line.

The 90-yard punt, breaks the playoff record set in 1995 of 88-yards, and the RSEQ regular season record of 85-yards in 1984, a decade before Green was born.

Green’s punt also ranks as the 10th longest in Canadian University (CIS) history.

On the day, Green, a Chatham-Kent Secondary School and Chatham-Kent Cougars alumni, punted 7 times, averaging 37-yards, for a total of 285-yards. Through four games, Green currently ranks 7th amongst RSEQ punters, averaging 35.9 yards per kick.

Green and the Concordia Stingers will attempt to pick up their first win of the season next Saturday when they host the McGill Redmen for a 1 p.m game.
