Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

What a first week of camp we have had. When you combine the amount of plays/systems we have on offence, defence and special teams, with the talent and effort we are seeing on the field every day, this is the best training camp we have had in the six years our staff has been together.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

August is here! This means that we don’t have to wait much longer for the football season. Our whole team (coaches, players and staff) will report to training camp on Thursday, August 9th. We will very quickly dive right into a schedule that will see the team waking up at 6:30am and not returning to their rooms until about 9:30pm. The days will be filled with practices, meetings, therapy, meals, workouts and more.

Had things gone a little differently back during his high school days, Kwaku Boateng might be hauling in passes for the Edmonton Eskimos, instead of hauling down quarterbacks.

Turns out, though, what made him a bit of a liability on offence made him a star on defence and the 23-year-old from Milton, Ontario, is parlaying that quality into emergence as a premier CFL defensive end.

They are the favourites and they are the villains.

Kitchener native Alex Pigozzo and his Canadian teammates are bracing for a chilly reception Sunday at Mexico City’s Olympic Stadium, where Canada will face the host nation in the gold-medal game of the International Federation of American Football world U19 championship. Canada is the reigning champion and will be favoured to win against Mexico, which shocked the United States 33-6 in a semifinal game Wednesday. The Canadians moved on with a difficult 28-22 victory over Japan after cruising to an easy win over Sweden in their first game of the six-team event that also features an entry from Australia.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Amazingly, we are just six weeks away from training camp! The players are working extremely hard this summer and many made it back to campus for our player run practice on June 24th. In fact, 89 players were in town and took part in meetings, which coaches could take part in and then the players went out to the field and the senior players ran the 90 minute practice.
