Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

It was a better year from a team standpoint this season, winning the first playoff game for Wilfrid Laurier University in five years and this past week several of our players were rewarded for their exceptional individual play this season. We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication that all of our players put into their craft 12 months of the year, and to have seven of them named OUA All-Stars this past Thursday is fantastic!

“Our Story” extends to every member of our organization, and that includes the ones you might not see everyday. Rashari and Madilyn are two of our wonderful kitchen staff at Wilf’s, and their stories are our stories.

Scott: Tell us about yourselves.

Rashari: My name is Rashari Henry, I’m in my second year of economics, I play on the football team here, and I started working at Wilf’s right before I came in. I just wanted to have a job set up before I came to university.

Week9_7Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Unfortunately our season came to an end Saturday in London as we lost a hard fought game 32-18 to Western. It is safe to say, we gave Western their toughest game of the year and headed into halftime down just 15-13.

Although there are no moral victories and we wish we were prepping for the Yates Cup this week, I am extremely pleased with the heart and work ethic our team showed the second half of the season.
