Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
Amazingly, we are just six weeks away from training camp! The players are working extremely hard this summer and many made it back to campus for our player run practice on June 24th. In fact, 89 players were in town and took part in meetings, which coaches could take part in and then the players went out to the field and the senior players ran the 90 minute practice.
On August 9th the players will report to training camp and we will very quickly get into a routine of many practices, meetings and meals. Then on Friday, August 17th we will be in Montreal playing the McGill Redmen in a preseason game.
Upon returning from Quebec, we will immediately begin our preparations for our Week One opener against the Ottawa Gee Gees, which we will host here at University Stadium on Sunday, August 26th.
We would love to see big crowds this year. You will watch a highly competitive team and witness outstanding performances by many future professional athletes. Get your season tickets here and see home games against the Ottawa Gee Gees, Waterloo Warriors, Guelph Gryphons (Homecoming) and Windsor Lancers.
It’s a busy time around the program. Here’s what is happening:
