Dillon Campbell is returning to the Laurier Golden Hawks football team for his 5th and final season and his head coach couldn’t be happier.

Michael Faulds says “we truly feel we have the best player in the country on our team.” Campbell is coming off an MVP season with the Golden Hawks, recording over 1400 yards on the ground. He was named the player of the year in OUA football.

WATERLOO — Michael Faulds has a weapon of mass destruction in his arsenal. And he’s not afraid to use it.

Wilfrid Laurier’s head football coach will deploy the nation’s leading rusher from a year ago, Dillon Campbell, in any and all situations this season.

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.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

It’s been 10 years since Laurier won the Vanier Cup. We would like to extend an invitation to our alumni in the Saskatoon region or anyone else making the trip out there to join Laurier President & Vice-Chancellor Dr. Max Blouw, Vice-President: Academic & Provost Dr. Deborah MacLatchy, Director of Athletics & Recreation Peter Baxter, and Vice President of Student Affairs David McMurray for a pre-game reception to celebrate the Hawks vs. Huskies Vanier Cup Anniversary re-match.

This will be a great opportunity for alumni to meet Laurier’s senior administrative staff and to reconnect with fellow Golden Hawks before the kickoff of the game at 7pm.
