Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
The team is really coming together. This past Friday’s practice was definitely the best one of the year and our whole coaching staff came away pleased and impressed. Still a lot of room for improvement and many things to work on, but we got a glimpse of what we think can be a pretty darn good football team this year. This all stems from a team working extremely hard each and every day and everyone having a team first mentality.
Just three more weeks until we finish our indoor workouts and head outside for spring camp. Luckily, our field isn’t buried under three feet of snow like it typically is this time of year, so practices will run smoothly. We also have a couple combined practices that our players are excited about. On Thursday March 24th, we will head over to McMaster to practice with the Marauders and then on Saturday April 2nd we will conclude spring camp by hosting the Waterloo Warriors.
Here’s what is happening:
Braydon Noll from Trinity College has committed and is a nice addition to our defensive line: https://laurierfootball.com/2016/02/28/orangeville-native-joins-best-defensive-line-in-the-league/
Additionally, I’m really pleased with the recruiting class this year. Recruiting Coordinator Dwayne Cameron – along with our team of scouts and coaches – have done a fantastic job adding more talent and depth to every position. We are now nearing the end of this recruiting class with maybe five more commits to go.
