Christian Baul, Football, Ottawa University


Christian Baul, Football player, signed with Ottawa University on Feb. 3rd, 2022.

Baul started his football career in 6th grade when his dad signed him up to play. From there, he fell in love with the sport.

“I started playing football for my middle school, Robinson, and stuck with it ever since,” Baul said.

After playing all throughout his childhood, Baul was ready to fully commit to football, and Ottawa University offered exactly what he was looking for.

“From the minute I stepped onto campus, everyone made my family and I feel welcomed. (Ottawa) is one big family, and that’s what drew me to it.” Baul said.

Reflecting on his years of playing football, Baul highlighted valuable traits he gained from the sport.

“Football especially has taught me toughness and adversity. Even when you get knocked down, no matter what, you keep pushing.” Baul said.

Baul hopes to major in Business and Communications, and one day pursue a career in merchandising and possibly acting.
