The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team is heading out West this week as they will face the Saskatchewan Huskies in a non-conference game on Friday night.

Kickoff is set for 9 p.m. Eastern and the game can be seen live on CanadaWest.tv.

The matchup against Saskatchewan will mark the 10-year anniversary of Laurier’s thrilling 2005 Vanier Cup victory over the Huskies. That game saw the underdog Golden Hawks rally late against Saskatchewan as Brian Devlin connected on a 32-yard field goal with 19 seconds left to give the purple and gold a 24-23 win for their second-ever Vanier Cup Championship.

And as Campbell, a 23-year-old thermonuclear bomb from Whitby, goes, so too, will his Golden Hawks.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Laurier Football Camp 2015 opens this weekend! There aren’t enough exclamation points to convey the excitement on the team and around the campus for the football season. The LONG nine month off-season has FINALLY come to an end and it’s time to strap on the equipment and get out on the field.

Players will report this Saturday and practices begin on Sunday. Anyone interested in watching practices please come on by. For the most part, we will practice in the mornings 8:45am – 10:45am and again in the afternoons from 3:45pm – 5:45pm. Simply email me ahead of time if you want to come and I can notify you of any changes to the practice times.
