WATERLOO, ON – The No.5 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team announced their players of the week following their 75-32 loss against the No.2 Western Mustangs in the 110th Yates Cup OUA Championship in London on Saturday afternoon.
WATERLOO, ON — The No. 5 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team has announced its players of the game following a 53-31 win over the York Lions on the road Thursday night. The win improved Laurier to 5-1 on the season.
On the biggest stage of Michael Knevel’s career, Laurier took over the ball, down 21 points in the championship game against a bitter rival — the Western Mustangs. No easy task.
It takes a level head to make 11 other men believe that a win is possible. It took a level head to spoil Carleton’s homecoming and it took the same tactic to sit patiently for four years and wait for his opportunity to lead the Laurier Golden Hawks to the Yates Cup.
Finally taking over the starting job after four years of waiting, Knevel was poised to thrive in a familiar offence.
“I waited a long time. Obviously, four years and it felt really good to get out there and I was really confident going in, even my first, game because I had been preparing for four years, so it was a good feeling to finally take over the starting job,” the quarterback said.
