Laurier football weekly update

20180309 - Kha Vo - Laurier Football 2018_-131Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

We have just completed our off-season early morning weight room phase. We are so incredibly proud of how hard the boys have worked. In all, they were asked to get up for 6:00 am workouts 34 times since January 3rd. This is far more than we have ever done before and our players definitely rose to the occasion with their attendance and effort.

Last week was our final indoor practice of the year at RIM Park. For the week, our Hard Hat Award recipient is someone that was a walk-on player last winter and has done nothing but impressed our coaching staff and his teammates ever since with his incredible work ethic.

He does everything with a smile on his face and he exceeds expectations in the business school and on the field. The Hard Hat recipient for Week #9 is defensive back Patrick James.

Photos from practice #9 are found here.

Today we will be back outside for practice and Monday March 19th is officially the start of our Spring Camp. It is a program decision to finish all 20 practices before exams so the boys can focus on school and then when exams are completed they can begin their summer employment.

Spring practices are open to all friends of the program. For the most part we are on the field daily at 5:30pm.

If you decide to attend simply email mfaulds@wlu.ca so I can confirm the time for you.

Here’s what is happening:
