Laurier football weekly update

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Last week was the best week of the off-season. The players tested in the gym and the energy at practice was fantastic.

We had two Hard Hat Award recipients and they both have a lot in common; they are both in first year, they are lineman, they are naturally quiet and lead by example, they are terrific students and they both had over 400lb squats on testing day.

The Hard Hat Award winners last week are offensive lineman James Leach from John F. Ross in Guelph and defensive lineman John O’Reilly from Corpus Christi in Burlington.

Photos from the weight room and Practice #8 can be found here.

Here’s what is happening:
