Congratulations to King’s student-athlete Savaughn Magnaye-Jones, who has been signed by the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Magnaye-Jones, a fourth-year BMOS Specialization in Finance and Administration student, was a receiver for the Western Mustangs and is coming off a season where he caught 33 passes for 579 yards and nine touchdowns. Over his 26 games with the Mustangs, he caught 79 passes for 1,524 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Magnaye-Jones was named a 1st Team All Canadian for the 2021 season, an achievement he repeated in 2022. He was awarded a Purple Blanket during the 82nd annual Mustang Awards on April 6, 2023.

He was also one of four King’s student-athletes who attended the (CFL) National Combine in Edmonton from March 22-26, 2023. The combine allows CFL teams to gauge prospects' work on the field and their abilities to learn systems, process information and adapt to feedback

“King’s is so very proud to see all students achieve their goals and dreams. We wish Savaughn all the best in the CFL,” says Joe Henry, Dean of Students.
