Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
I’m pleased to announce that the 17th Annual Friends of Golden Hawk Football Reception and Dinner presented by Sun Life Financial will be held Thursday, April 28th at Bingemans Conference Centre in Kitchener, Ontario.
We are excited that, this year, we will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the 1991 Vanier Cup winning team. That year, our Golden Hawks beat the Mount Allison Mounties 25-18 in front of over 30,000 fans at Skydome. To attend this great event you can purchase your tickets/table here: http://www.laurierathletics.com/generatepage.php?ID=58
Here’s what is happening:
Winter Practice #2
Another good practice this past week and there has been great focus on the fundamentals and technique so far this offseason. We have a highly motivated team that has tasted a bit of success to know what that feels like, but is still very hungry for more and to make it much further this year.
We are back at the RIM Park indoor bubble again this Friday from 3pm – 5pm for anyone interested in watching.
Two more great additions this week in our recruiting class:
DB Damian Lombardi 6’0” 190 – St. Mary’s (Pickering, ON)
OL Connor Smith 6’6” 280 – Regina Mundi (London, ON)
Running back Dillon Campbell
Congratulations to Dillon Campbell who has signed with the Toronto Argonauts!
Adopt-A-Hawk – $32,336 and counting
We are almost there! The goal of passing last year’s total of $33,000 is well within reach now and we still have four more months in this fiscal year. Thank you to all that have helped us reach this goal. It helps our program greatly and we are closing the gap with the OUA’s top teams.
Help us expand our subscribers list and send me the email address of anyone interested to firstname.lastname@example.org, please and thank you!
Until next week,
Go Hawks Go!
