We’re really excited for our 19th Annual Golden Hawks Football Dinner presented by Sun Life Financial this Wednesday at Bingemans Conference Centre (reception at 5pm, dinner at 6:30pm).

Former Golden Hawk great (and receiver) Andy Baechler is back to emcee the event and our night is headlined by Laurier alum and comedian DJ Demers taking the stage. Players from every decade attend the event and there are some great items at both the silent and live auctions.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Our recruiting showcase #TakeFlight2018 was a success. A big thank you to emcee Dan Polischuk and live interviewer Jack Moore who made recruiting coordinator Dwayne Cameron and my job very easy.

Another thank you to all the parents and family members of the recruiting class that journeyed to campus, through an April snow storm, to attend. We had over 125 people at the event, which exceeded expectations.

We have just completed our off-season early morning weight room phase. We are so incredibly proud of how hard the boys have worked. In all, they were asked to get up for 6:00 am workouts 34 times since January 3rd. This is far more than we have ever done before and our players definitely rose to the occasion with their attendance and effort.

Last week was our final indoor practice of the year at RIM Park. For the week, our Hard Hat Award recipient is someone that was a walk-on player last winter and has done nothing but impressed our coaching staff and his teammates ever since with his incredible work ethic.

Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,

Last week was the best week of the off-season. The players tested in the gym and the energy at practice was fantastic.

We had two Hard Hat Award recipients and they both have a lot in common; they are both in first year, they are lineman, they are naturally quiet and lead by example, they are terrific students and they both had over 400lb squats on testing day.
