Vincent Flamia is a familiar face around Wilfrid Laurier, as a former student-athlete, Vince was a freshman on the 2005 Vanier Cup Team and was part of the Laurier Coaching Staff in 2015 and most notably the Yates Cup 2016 Team as an assistant to Dwayne Cameron.
Flamia was serving as the Special Teams Coordinator, Recruiting Coordinator and DB Coach with the Windsor Lancers the last 3 seasons. Under his guidance, Flamia took the 27th Overall Special Teams Unit in the country into one of the Top 10 Teams, and this past year led the country in PR Avg, thanks to his recruitment of former Golden Hawk, Carson Ouellette to play his final season in his hometown (Windsor)
Flamia was one of very few Canadians to become a GA in Division 1 Football with the Ohio Bobcats while completing his Masters in Coaching Education & Leadership, and worked under current NFL 1st Pick Overall, Joe Burrows Dad ; Jimmy Burrow. This was due to a major role played by current Laurier Alum, Andrew Agro and Vince Luciani as they have set the path for many Laurier Student-Athletes to continue their passion in sports in the US.
Prior to completing his Masters in Coaching, Vince was an educator for 5 years, and taught and coached at St. Thomas More in Burnaby, BC, where he led the Knights to a Provincial Championship in Football at the age of 26, and received an award at the BC Lions Orange Helmet Dinner for his success and undefeated season.
As much as Vince loves Football, he is very close with his family and always makes time for his nieces and nephews.
