On the football field, Ottawa Redblacks linebacker Micah Awe has made 71 tackles, 2 sacks and forced a fumble in 13 games played over the 2021 CFL season. With just one game remaining on his schedule, he sits at 4th for the CFL tackle leaderboard, and is expected to remain in the top 5 for the end of the season, but Awe is not only making plays on the field, he’s making big plays off of it as well.
Earlier in this calendar year, he launched his combine testing and verification app, PurpleShift. An app where in the matter of submitting a video of doing the activities, you can see how you test at the 40 yard dash, 3 cone drill, 20 yard shuttle, broad jump, vertical jump and other combine activities. This is a one of a kind app, and Awe has done a tremendous job recently in building a PurpleShift community, having partnered with Football Canada, NCAFA and a few other organizations and people in the Ottawa area as he completes his CFL season in the nation’s capital.
On Sunday, November 14th Awe will have his first virtual event with PurpleShift in collaboration with Ottawa’s NCAFA, a local city football league and Ottawa’s Sport and Entertainment Group. The event will be a zoom conference, open to anybody at 6:00 PM eastern on Sunday. During the meeting, those that attend will be able to learn more about the Purpleshift app as well as get a look in at the stories behind some of the Redblacks’ star players like Micah Awe and DeVonte Dedmon, who may just win the CFL’s Special Teams Player of The Year award this 2021 CFL season.
