Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
This newsletter is brought to you by our great friends and the best movers AMJ Campbell.
We are thrilled with our 2019 recruiting class and last week we unveiled it through our #TakeFlight2019 recruiting show. Please take a look to see the full class announced, which includes: player interviews, film sessions and recruiting class analysis.

We are also excited that the 20th Laurier Football Dinner will be held this Saturday, April 27th on campus at the beautiful Lazaridis School of Business & Economics. For many reasons this year’s event is a hot ticket and we are pumped to say it is SOLD OUT! The evening will include: Master of Ceremonies Mike Hogan, honouring legendary Coach Gary Jeffries, Sportsnet Host Sid Seixeiro & Donnovan Bennett and a fantastic silent auction.
