Andy Cecchini has happily moved on, although the game of football remains an enjoyable diversion in his life.

Wilfrid Laurier’s Vanier Cup hero from 1991 had no idea his dusty 24-year-old school career rushing record at Wilfrid Laurier was broken last week by Dillon Campbell.

That is, until a newspaper reporter came calling.

Laurier Football is very excited to announce the commitment of a pair of excellent young defensive backs for our 2016 recruiting class. OFC All Stars Mitchell Phillips and Christian Coppin.

Coppin (5″10 175lbs, 4.6-40) is a member of the Huronia Stallions and is a First-Team OFC DB and Kick Returner. Coppin has also competed in 7 on 7 and first came onto Laurier’s radar by attending our Spring High School Football Camp in 2015. He is a confident player with high energy and projects to compete at the field corner/half-back positions.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

On Saturday, at Homecoming, on a perfect day, with the 10 year anniversary of the 2005 Vanier Cup winning team, you witnessed an undisciplined football team – and I take full responsibility for that. No team is good enough to overcome 20 penalties and, as a result, we lost the game to Windsor (22-18).

Offense – We were able to establish the run early on, but every time we would get into scoring position or across mid-field we would get a very untimely penalty. On the ground, we were consistent with both Dillon Campbell and Eric Guiltinan running hard. Dillon had 118 yards rushing and Eric added another 95.

Our struggles were through the air, where we couldn’t consistently move the ball down the field. We will get back to the drawing board and move the ball more consistently this week and get into the endzone.

HAMILTON, ON – Laurier kicker Nathan Mesher (Waterloo, Ont.) was responsible for 12 of the Golden Hawk’s 18 points Saturday, on his way to OUA Special Teams Player of the Week honours.

The first-year Business student-athlete connected on a field goal from 47 yards out, the second longest boot in OUA this season. Mesher is now 9 for 10 this season, which ties him for the second best kicking percentage in the league.  He finished the afternoon a perfect 4-for-4.
