WATERLOO, ON – For the first time since 2002, the No. 4 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks men’s football team suffered a defeat at the hands of their University Ave. rivals as they lost 34-32 to the Waterloo Warriors on Saturday at University Stadium.

In a back-and-forth contest, the Golden Hawks and Warriors put on an offensive display for the 1,736 fans in attendance on a hot and sunny afternoon. Combining for over 1150 yards of offence, the two squads breathed life into a rivalry that was in need of a boost after the Hawks had posted 14 consecutive wins over the black and gold.

What a first week of camp we have had. When you combine the amount of plays/systems we have on offence, defence and special teams, with the talent and effort we are seeing on the field every day, this is the best training camp we have had in the six years our staff has been together.

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.

Had things gone a little differently back during his high school days, Kwaku Boateng might be hauling in passes for the Edmonton Eskimos, instead of hauling down quarterbacks.

Turns out, though, what made him a bit of a liability on offence made him a star on defence and the 23-year-old from Milton, Ontario, is parlaying that quality into emergence as a premier CFL defensive end.

Amazingly, we are just six weeks away from training camp! The players are working extremely hard this summer and many made it back to campus for our player run practice on June 24th. In fact, 89 players were in town and took part in meetings, which coaches could take part in and then the players went out to the field and the senior players ran the 90 minute practice.
