Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

August is here! This means that we don’t have to wait much longer for the football season. Our whole team (coaches, players and staff) will report to training camp on Thursday, August 9th. We will very quickly dive right into a schedule that will see the team waking up at 6:30am and not returning to their rooms until about 9:30pm. The days will be filled with practices, meetings, therapy, meals, workouts and more.

Kitchener native Alex Pigozzo and his Canadian teammates are bracing for a chilly reception Sunday at Mexico City’s Olympic Stadium, where Canada will face the host nation in the gold-medal game of the International Federation of American Football world U19 championship. Canada is the reigning champion and will be favoured to win against Mexico, which shocked the United States 33-6 in a semifinal game Wednesday. The Canadians moved on with a difficult 28-22 victory over Japan after cruising to an easy win over Sweden in their first game of the six-team event that also features an entry from Australia.
