Laurier adds size and speed to 2016 secondary

Laurier Football is very excited to announce the commitment of a pair of excellent young defensive backs for our 2016 recruiting class. OFC All Stars Mitchell Phillips and Christian Coppin.

Coppin (5″10 175lbs, 4.6-40) is a member of the Huronia Stallions and is a First-Team OFC DB and Kick Returner. Coppin has also competed in 7 on 7 and first came onto Laurier’s radar by attending our Spring High School Football Camp in 2015. He is a confident player with high energy and projects to compete at the field corner/half-back positions.

Phillips is going to be a physical nightmare for receivers in the boundary side of the field at 6’2, 195 lbs with 4.6-40 speed. He is built in the mould of former Golden Hawk DB (and Montreal Allouettes first round draft selection) Chris Ackie.

Mitchell has played in the very successful Hamilton Hurricanes organization along with high school powerhouse program St. Thomas More in Hamilton. He will join fellow STM/Hurricane alum Osayi Iginuan (first-year RB) here at Laurier.
