BURLINGTON, ON – It was a season for the record books for Laurier Golden Hawks’ receiver Kurleigh Gittens Jr.(Ottawa, Ont.) and for his efforts on the field, he has been named Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Most Valuable Player and the conference nominee for the U SPORTS Hec Crighton Trophy.

It’s no surprise that Gittens Jr.’s name can be found at the top of several statistical categories, as the First-Team All-Star on both offence and special teams was a dual-threat this year, helping the Golden Hawks to a second place finish in regular season play.
