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.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

We are just 2 ½ weeks away from the start of our 2015 Training Camp. The excitement is definitely building around the program and both players and coaches are eager to get started.

We will have everyone report on Saturday, August 15th and get all of the administrative things out of the way: equipment fitting, program head shots, medicals, concussion baseline testing, initial meetings, etc.

Then on Sunday, August 16th we will be into our full two-a-day practices. We will continue two-a-days until Thursday, August 20th when half the team will depart for our preseason game against the Saskatchewan Huskies in Saskatoon. After we return we will then have eight days to prepare for our first OUA league game, Saturday, August 30th at the York Lions.
