Laurier Football Update – Week of August 10, 2015

Running back Dillon Campbell will be returning to the Golden Hawks for a fifth year.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Laurier Football Camp 2015 opens this weekend! There aren’t enough exclamation points to convey the excitement on the team and around the campus for the football season. The LONG nine month off-season has FINALLY come to an end and it’s time to strap on the equipment and get out on the field.

Players will report this Saturday and practices begin on Sunday. Anyone interested in watching practices please come on by. For the most part, we will practice in the mornings 8:45am – 10:45am and again in the afternoons from 3:45pm – 5:45pm. Simply email me ahead of time if you want to come and I can notify you of any changes to the practice times.

Here’s what is happening:

RB Dillon Campbell
– Football is the ultimate team game and one player definitely does not make a team, but let’s just say we got a whole lot better this week when Dillon Campbell announced that he will be back for a fifth and final season with the Hawks.
– Dillon was the OUA MVP last season and shattered many records along the way. View some of the highlights HERE.

Adopt-A-Hawk – $13,201 and counting
– I am more than happy to find a player in need for any of you newsletter subscribers. You may also have a specific position that you would like us to find a player for you. We are here to help facilitate.
– We raised $33,000 last year as a team and can definitely surpass that this year – please help us better that mark this year!
– Compete in everything we do: Guelph – Triple Victory Project, MAC – 13th Man Program, Western – Adopt-A-Mustang. We can definitely do more and raise more than these teams – everyone can help!
