Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
Good luck to defensive back Austin Reusch who will take part in the CFL Regional Combine Thursday, March 10th in Toronto. On the field, Austin’s work ethic is hard to match and he has earned this opportunity with that desire to succeed. This is no different than Austin’s approach off the field where he has an extremely high GPA in the school of Business here at Laurier.
In other star player news, we are anxiously awaiting the East/West Bowl All-Stars to be announced. This is the CIS all-star game in May for student athletes that have just finished their third year. The game this year will once again happen at McGill University in Montreal on Saturday, May 14th. As soon as the rosters are released, we will be sure to communicate with you which Laurier players that will be participating.
Here’s what is happening:
The 17th Annual Friends of Golden Hawk Football Reception and Dinner
