Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
We hope that you all had a great holiday season and New Year’s!
2018 is here and the Laurier Football team is right back to doing what we do best and that is keeping everyone very busy. Our players are up for 6:00am weight training Monday to Thursday. We then have meetings Thursday evenings and practice every Friday afternoon.
We’ve figured out over the years that the busier and less free time a 17-23 year old has, the more productive they are and the better they do academically.
The 2018 OUA football schedule has already been released and we will open-up at home against the Ottawa Gee-Gees on Saturday, August 25th.
Our non-combatants this year are the York Lions and Toronto Varsity Blues. The schedule includes the Battle of Waterloo here at Laurier and a Homecoming date of Saturday, September 29th against the Guelph Gryphons.
The Yates Cup rematch from the last two seasons against Western will have to wait until the very last game of the year, when we travel down to London.
Here’s what is happening:
2017 Laurier Football Adopt-A-Hawk – $25,250 and counting!
We still have many players yet to be adopted. Please consider adopting one of our players today: www.laurieralumni.ca/AAHfootball
