McCartney was selected in the fifth round (37th overall) of the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft and signed on May 20, 2010.
Hampered by leg injuries, McCartney was in and out of the lineup all season and ended up playing seven regular-season games in addition to the West Division semifinal. Despite the limited action he surpassed his rookie-season total by making 13 defensive tackles and was tied for second on the club with three tackles for loss. McCartney added two special-teams tackles.
In his rookie campaign, McCartney was a force on special teams as he led the Stampeders with 19 special-teams tackles. He recorded at least one special-teams in 16 of the 17 regular-season games in which he was in uniform. He made an impressive CFL debut against Toronto on July 1 as he recorded his first tackle, his first sack and his first special-teams tackle. He finished the season with eight defensive tackles, including one tackle for loss.
McCartney played at Wilfrid Laurier in 2006. He then transferred to Saint Mary’s, where he played the 2008 and 2009 seasons. He was an Atlantic University Sport conference all-star in 2008 when he recorded 21 tackles, including 7.5 tackles for loss, four sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. During the 2008 season, he blocked a punt and ran it back 60 yards for a touchdown to lead Saint Mary's to a comeback win over St. Francis Xavier. In 2009, McCartney recorded 3.5 sacks, five tackles for loss and one forced fumble. He was invited to the 2009 CIS East-West Bowl.
